A few years ago for my birthday, one of my work friends gave me this cookbook: 500 Cupcakes!
While I haven't tried as many of the recipes as I would like, I have definitely found a favorite...for life. The Zucchini & Feta Muffins--these muffins are to die for!
I took a much needed "mental health day" yesterday and woke up yesterday morning and decided to make these muffins for Billy and me. He's been on night work lately and and working so hard, and I am in a bit of a mental funk--don't ask me why, it just happens--and thought these would be a nice treat. And I magically had all the ingredients...don't you just love when that happens?!
Billy mentioned that this was one of the ways I reeled him in...I think I brought one of these to him at work when we first started giving each other that sideways look...hehe. I try to make them for him every once in a while. He loves them. They are especially good right out of the oven with butter. Mmmmmmmm.
Dogs love them, too! Murph was very insistent that I let him sample a piece, just to make sure they were ok. They passed the test.
And for the record, I cannot WAIT to get my hands on a DSLR so I can take better food pictures...
So, if you happen to come across any of those 500 cookbooks, I definitely recommend picking up one or two. I have the appetizer one as well, and there are some yummy treats in there, too!
