Muffins and Martha Stewart Blog Candy!!!

What a GLORIOUS Sunday this is!!! It's nice and cool outside with a slight little breeze blowing.....Aaaaaaah......come on Fall and land in Texas!!!! We are going up to only 77 degrees today...yippeee!!! So, yesterday I baked muffins...my boys had company spend the night and to be honest with you....I'm NOT much on cooking or baking for that matter so I got out one of my boys all time favorites.....Martha White's blueberry muffin mix......just add milk....LOL!!!
Don't they look "muffilishous"? This is how I cool them....top side down....so the bottoms don't get all stuck to the plate.....I love the look of the bottoms better than the tops anyway, so I snapped a pictures of this side and then when they were cool. I flipped them over and got pics of the top sides. My boys think I'm weird because I take pictures of EVERYTHING!!!! LOL!!!!
See my tea towel there? My Aunt made a whole set of every day of the week for my hope chest and gave it to me for Christmas when I was 13....I use them all the time....I covered the muffins with it until all the kiddos got up and around to eating the muffins......yea, I got one that I snuck while they were still warm...with butter of course!!! I guess they liked them!!!
Okay, who DOES NOT like Martha Stewart stuff??? Since I'm celebrating my counter going over 40K, I made a trip to M's the other day to get one of those new snowflake border punches.....so I picked up a few things for BLOG CANDY too!!! By the way....I'm taking the border punch back....it does NOT look good and I was VERY disappointed in it!!! :-( Here's the deal on the blog candy.....to qualify, all I ask is that if you win...you "Pay it Forward" and give something away that you love too. This is an idea I got from a blogging stop I make daily....the Ingenious Inkling blog by Smilin' Steph...she used this idea the last time she offered up blog candy!!! I liked it so much I wanted to try it!!!
*@#*@#*@#*@#*@#*@#*@#*@#*@#*@#*@#*@#

The newest issue of Paper Crafts

I have to tell you that those muffins look YUMMY!!!! You know D, I bought that punch too and I used it on vellum and let me tell you - it looks CUTE!!! I know that it may not work on other papers but with the vellum, since it's thin, it works nice - I don't know if it's worth keeping it just for vellum but you may want to try it.

Oh and the towel is sooooooo adorable!!!!

HUGS!!!

I don't cook, so I can't leave a recipe, BUT your muffins look great, and so does the candy! And I will definitely pay it forward if I win ~ in fact, I have candy on my blog right now!

Sharon in NE said...

What a sweet bunch of blog candy! You're so thoughtful. Congrats on all those hits! I know plenty are mine.

Sharon in NE said...

I got this recipe from Vic at "This art that makes me happy." http://vickichrisman.blogspot.com/2008/10/happy-saturday.html

I can attest, they are so good!
She leaves them plain, or makes some frosting by adding a little powdered sugar and some cinnamon to a container of "whipped" cream cheese.

PUMPKIN MUFFINS/or bread
(the recipe is originally for bread..but I always make muffins)
3 cups sugar
1 c oil
4 eggs
2 (15 oz cans or one Lg can ) pumpkin
2/3 c water
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinn
1 tsp nutmeg
3 1/2 c flour
2 tsp. baking soda
Combine all and mix with electric mixer. Grease 3 loaf pans and bake at 350 for 60 minutes
(adapt for muffins)

Bamabel said...

Ok, now I'm hungry after looking at your blog! Yummo! And what a great RAK idea! I love your RAK goodies too!!!

Here is a muffin recipe that I love to make for company...

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Pumpkin-Apple-Muffins-with-Streusel-Topping/Detail.aspx

I have made these on several occasions and the guest always rave! ;)

SmilynStef said...

Love those goodies. I just made these pumpkin muffins this morning ... they were so easy & yummy.

Enfys said...

What a lovely idea. I've never made a muffin in my life (now if you had asked for a recipe for English scones, I would have been your girlie) hugs - En x

Oma said...

I love muffins too but rarely make them. With only 2 of us here, it hardly seems worth it. My faves are whole wheat carrot muffins. I love the Martha Stewart line of crafts and would love to win some candy. I was at Walmart today and was eyeing that punch but didn't cave. I did; however, cave and bought some daisy flower embellies from her line.

Captain Crafter said...

my wife has a nice recipe for banana muffins. I'll try to get it and post it here to share.

Congrats to the 40K! This recipe might not be what you've been looking for, since it is a recipe for SALMON muffins :D

Yes, that's right. They're soo yummy, my brother made them for my mom's birthday and I HAD to get the recipe, so here it is:

Thaw 3 plates of frozen puff pastry. Roll out until it is a little thinner and cut squares adjusted to your muffin pan.
Take 2 cups of sour cream, blend with three egg yolks, half a package of frozen herbs and 2 chopped garlic cloves. Season with salt and pepper. Fold in 2 portions of diced salmon. Prepare the muffin pan with (olive) oil and lay out the puff pastry. Insert the mix and close with the little flaps. If you like you can paint some egg yolk onto the flaps. Bake at 200 °C for about 20 minutes! Enjoy! :)

KAT said...

l like most of marthas stuff. i really haven't had anything i didn't like. i love your blog and had to laugh at you. you should write. you're good at making people laugh. here's a recipe for southern corn muffins. easy:

I so love the idea of paying it forward, very cool idea, if I win I will definitely do it.

So since we are coming up on my favorite holiday and favorite holiday drink...EGGNOG!!! (Can't wait until Starbucks starts making their Eggnog Lattes!)

So here is an Eggnog muffin recipe...

Ingredients:
2 Eggs
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Cold Eggnog
1/2 Cup butter, melted
1 tsp Rum Extract
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 1/4 Cups Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Ground Nutmeg

Instructions:
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease your muffin pans.

In a large bowl, beat eggs.
Add sugar, eggnog, butter, rum and vanilla extracts and blend well.
In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt & nutmeg.

Add dry ingredients to eggnog mixture & stir until all is moistened. Do not over mix; batter will be slightly lumpy.

Pour into prepared muffin pans.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Yum-Yum!!!

Carol said...

I love the idea of paying it forward! Thanks!!

Here's my recipe: Pecan Pie Muffins
1 c. chopped pecans
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
2 lg. eggs
1/2 c. melted butter
Combine the pecans, sugar and flour in large bowl; make a well in center. Beat eggs until foamy. Stir together the eggs and butter; add to dry ingredients, stirring until just moistened. Place foil baking cups in muffin pans and coat with cooking spray. Spoon batter into cups filling 2/3 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350.

DonnaMundinger said...

Congrats on the 40K DeeDee. What a lovely RAK and now that I finally have a blog I can pay it forward if I win. I sure shouldn't have read this before breakfast. Your muffins are making my mouth water and all of the recipes sound yummy. I ran downstairs to get my fave Banana Nut Muffin recipe from the Barefoot Contessa but I can't find my book. I'm gonna keep lookin' though because I've got some really black bananas sitting on my counter even as we speak. LOL

Hey there! I'm afraid that the only muffin recipe I know is the one you used! LOL Hope that counts! I agree with you on that snowflake border. It is aweful, but I can't take mine back, because i ripped the packaging all to heck trying to get the darn thing out. Oh well! Best, Curt

ScrapMomOf2 said...

That's too bad that your punch didn't work. Her punches are usually wonderful, aren't they? Anyway . . . awesome blog candy! I love the idea of paying it forward! Your muffins look delicious, and I love that towel! It's wonderful! I don't make muffins. I should! My favorite muffin recipe is to get my girls, jump in the van, and purchase some at Dunkin' Donuts! Ha ha ha ha ha!! Thanks for the chance to win!
