Tomato Spice Muffins

I'm always on the lookout for recipes using garden produce. Although I'm the only one in our family who likes tomatoes, my husband and daughter love these muffins. They have a yummy spice flavor, and the tomatoes keep them moist.

    Needs more leavening and a bit more flour to be perfect but a nice flavor.

    This recipe is good to have if you have an over abundance of tomatoes and are sick of canning them.
