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. -Terrie Cox, Honeyville, Utah

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 9, 2013

I was very pleased with the appearance of these muffins- mine looked better than the picture, very nicely rounded tops. But I thought they were pretty bland and not really worth the effort, especially since the recipe is a bit time consuming with beating the egg yolks and whites separately and folding into the batter. The lemon taste wasn't very prominent either.

MY REVIEW

My husband and I were disappointed with these muffins. I used Stevia, might be better with sugar.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 3, 2013

These are wonderful. Lovely fluffy texture. I used Meyer lemons and added more zest & juice, they came out very tangy and flavorful. Everyone loved them although they were a bit too lemony for the kids. (That was because of my adjustment.) I also didn't realize they were minis so I got 8 large ones. Next time I'll do minis for sure. I blogged them here.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 7, 2012

I liked these quite a lot. My family isn't very into lemon flavors, but I had my friends try it and they liked it. One commented that it was just a bit too dry, but I'm not sure how to fix that. I think they would be perfect for a tea party or a girly get together.
