We do our best. You know? Muffins...can be just OK in my opinion...but these are more than just OK. Because, well, we hold ourselves to a higher standard here on To me muffins are the dowdy cousin of a cupcake and really the only time to eat muffins is in the morning, before noon, when you feel kind of guilty for eating a real cake! So, if you the muffins. This one is delish...and I have heard that people are subbing out the poppyseeds for chocolate. SHOCK. But you didn't hear that from me.
