While flipping through a book my mother had on her shelf I came across a recipe for muffins. This was no ordinary, cookie-cutter recipe though; it was extremely versatile and adaptable to make any flavour of muffin I desired. I want applesauce muffins? Okay, I can do that. Cranberry muffins with lemon and bran flakes? Okay, I can do that too. Sausage, egg, and cheese muffins? Sure, why not? Orange zest muffins? Can do!

I could go on and on, but I love that recipe, and have made many different combinations of muffins since the day I found that recipe. With it being as flexible as it is, I can literally bake a muffin from any ingredients I have on hand. I don't need to make sure I have enough blueberries, or that there's enough flour in the bucket, I can mix and match anything together to make yummy, warm goodies!

Oh, I meant to add... have you ever had pinapple bran muffins? They are soooo good!

This isn't a comment, but, rather, a question. When using chopped apples in a muffin recipe, is it smart to mix a small amount of flour into your apples to counter-act the juice?

Ah, sorry for the late response, I had been in the middle of relocating :( Okay, I will add a blog post with the recipe, as it's rather confusing. @Terry - I have not had pineapple bran muffins, though they do sound really good! I'll have to try them. @TeriAnn - I am not sure, I'll have to look at the recipe to see how it would work. I'll get back to you on that!

About Me
I'm a full time university student who loves the simple things in life. Good food, good company, and good entertainment. I'm easy to please, and easily entertained as well!
My favorite things to cook
My favourite things to cook are Asian dishes. I also like making my own pasta sauces, and even made a tomato-based sauce that was sweet. I just like experimenting in general!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family cooks, and cooks, and cooks. I grew up learning that food is company's best friend, and so food was always available to offer to guests. For birthdays we make a Chocolate cake that has a secret ingredient that is always a hit. Kielbasa is also a staple 'comfort' food, always served with vinegar.
My cooking triumphs
When my older brother developed an allergy to soy products, I helped adapt many recipes to become soy-free so he could eat them. It was a lot harder than I first thought it would be - especially the more I discovered how many products have some type of soy in them!
My cooking tragedies
My most memorable cooking experience has to be the first time I made apple pie. The instructor said to add 'as much brown sugar as you want.' I took that a bit too literally (horrid sweet tooth, I admit!) and ended up making what is now called "Apple Soup in a Pie Crust."
