My muffins are a frequent request from everyone in the family. I usually make them on Sunday nights, so when we're running late on weekday mornings, the kids can grab these to eat on the bus. —Irene Wayman, Grantsville, Utah
My sisters, brothers and I started cooking and baking when we were young. Mom was a very good teacher—she told us we would learn our way around the kitchen. Now, I tell my kids the same thing! —Cindy Middleton, Champion, Alberta
Meet the Cook: When it comes to baking, muffins are No. 1 to me. I bake a batch every day. These are great with your favorite tea...or cool lemonade in the summer or a cup of hot cocoa in the winter!
My family - my husband and I have three children...7, 3 and 2 - live in the country. We have horses and enjoy riding, along with fishing, boating plus lots of other outdoor activities.

Meet the Cook: No matter when I make these muffins - for breakfast, or for lunch to serve with a bowl of soup or salad - my husband devours them! He's retired from the Air Force, and we have four grown children. Gardening's my top hobby.

Meet the Cook: If you're looking for a good "brown bag treat", try these. I also make them for breakfast and at-home snacks. Usually, I'll bake a double batch so we can eat some hot from the oven and pop the others in the refrigerator to heat later.
My husband and I have a son who's 4 and a baby daughter who's 9 months.
