Taking a break from Lilly news to share info on this neat new cookbook from my colleague and friend Brette Sember. First, came The Parchment Paper Cookbook and now … The Muffin Tin Cookbook, which, I believe, provides recipes for many occasions. And, if you think it’s all or only about muffins, THINK AGAIN!
Cookbook Review: The Muffin Tin Cookbook – 200 Fast, Delicious Mini-Pies, Pasta Cups, Gourmet Pockets, Veggie Cakes, and More!
I’ve thought about this a lot, and the recipes from The Muffin Tin Cookbook are perfect for:
- Grownup parties of all kinds
- Kids parties of all kinds, including slumber parties
- General household noshing and meals we like to call “snack buffet” (pronounced boo-fay)
As I said in my Amazon review of The Muffin Tin Cookbook, I’m not above having “dessert emergencies.” And, while you can find recipes for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner in the cookbook, I went straight for something sweet.
Monkey Bread on page 174 to be exact, and like magic, just 4 ingredients became a little after-dinner treat. The dough? A can of pre-made biscuits.
I put the final result in a ramekin to make a prettier picture (my muffin tins are well-used), but as you can see … doughy, buttery, cinnamon-sugary joy.
I’m keeping the copy that the publisher was nice enough to send me for FREE because I love it that much, but you can enter to win a FREE copy for yourself from Brette:
Enter to win a copy of The Muffin Tin Cookbook (before April, 15, 2012).
It would make a terrific Mother’s Day gift or a welcome addition to your own cookbook collection.
And, many thanks to Brette for including me in the acknowledgements. I get all misty when my friends do so well.
