M: RR Recipe #3 and a Bushel o’ Muffins

Happy Friday Eve!! And thanks for the suggestions on the healthier desserts! I will definitely be trying some of those out!

Ok, so you know how I’ve been attempting to make all 10 of Rachael Ray’s top 10 recipes of 2010 – and I’ve done two now: the honey rosemary chicken and portabella cacciatore. Both were FANTASTIC.

This one, not so much. I tried the slow cooker Spanish-style chicken and it was sort of, meh. I’m not sure what it was, there just wasn’t much taste to it, and the raisin/roasted red pepper topping was a little weird for me.

So, fail #1, but that’s ok! I move on easily =)

Plus, I have these amazing muffins that I baked up for a group of co-workers. And, this is something definitely worth sharing!

I doubled miss Dawn’s recipe for blueberry muffins with crumbly topping. (p.s. these are the best blueberry muffins I’ve made, this recipe has been my go-to blueberry muffin recipe for a while now!)

Then I made up a batch of Monica’s apple cinnamon muffins. These are made with applesauce and chopped fresh apples and topped with a sprinkle of brown sugar…oh so good! These are the hub’s favorite.

Do you have a favorite muffin recipe or other type of breakfast bread?

muffins for me arent healthy :)
they can be for SURE but I tend to cram em with...the notsohealthy and call it a treat :)

Muffins are amazing! My mom has a great (super simple, I think 6 ingredient) blueberry muffin recipe. I made some orange poppyseed bran muffins the other week that were lovely. Most of the time I prefer a healthier muffin, but sometimes I like a more rich, sweet muffin for a treat :) Yours look wonderful! I will definitely check out those recipes.

Too bad the chicken didn't turn out.
Those muffins look AWESOME! I love banana-cinnamon muffins!

my fav muffin recipe is the apple cinnamon muffin recipe you sent me...the one with the crumb topping.

i love cinnamon raisin bread but never buy it. i challenge you to make some :) ...with icing :)

Lisa said...

I don't usually make muffins...but I love them! When I do make them...usually just plain old blueberry. So good!

You win some & you lose some!! At least you got two delicious recipes in your RR top ten adventure. It'll be interesting to see how many you like/don't like out of all 10!
