Some of the happenings this week…
As I might have mentioned a time or two 😉 I really like to cook and bake and spend a lot of my time looking at/for recipes. I also am a little fickle and go through phases on where I am sourcing recipes. I have long been a fan of Cook’s Illustrated (particularly their desserts,) NY Times Cooking (Melissa Clark,) Epicurious, and Food 52. A couple of years ago, I noticed a new magazine with gorgeous pictures and had to pick it up. This became my newest baking crush, Bake From Scratch (The Bake Feed.) My first issue had these muffins along with a few others that I made in rapid succession, because they were just all so yummy. I like traditional flavors, so for strawberry season which is so short, I tend to stick with the tried and true, but with blueberries and peaches, the bounty lasts longer, so I will branch out. These take a little time, but are very worth it in the end. Changes I made: most definitely use muffin cup liners, because even in nonstick, they might get a little stuck and break also I made regular sized muffins (12ish) instead of the 8 jumbo, the recipe calls for. You will just need to adjust the baking time.
