What do you crave upon waking up on a glorious morning? Are you a sweet or savory kind of person? I’ve mentioned that I cannot function without my warm oatmeal. Some people are eggy and bacony. Toast or an English muffin with butter and jelly seems to be a staple for others. I know a strange person who will stand and eat steaks by the microwave or chicken off the bone.
Some people, though, have a certain affinity for buttery pastry. Scones and clotted cream might be the norm for some folks but others love muffins, especially. Who doesn’t love a good muffin? The problem is, like many items, that it’s difficult to find a good one. Before my taste buds became know-it-all’s, I relied on Starbucks or Entemann’s. Unfortunately (fortunately?), that’s no longer my reality. Luckily, I have found my muffin nirvana thanks to my cooking Bible, Cook’s Illustrated. If they were a person I think I’d wanna marry them in a heartbeat.
