Jordan Marsh Muffins

(originally made 8/2011)

Still getting blueberries from my dad's, though it's slowly down considerably.   Saturday morning I was headed to drop of Jake and pick some more, so I wanted to use up some of what I had in the fridge.    Muffins go over well here, and Carol had recommended this recipe and I knew if she said it was a winner, it would be!    :)    I used the regular muffin tin, lined with papers which I also sprayed.   I sprayed the top of the pan, and they popped out no problem.

The texture on these is so nice, and I always love the added crunch of raw sugar on top of my muffins and quick breads.     I also added a 1/2t of cinnamon to the batter.   I should have made a double batch, I gave some to my dad, Tim helped himself to a bunch last night and Jake just had one for breakfast.    :)   Thanks so much Carol!   :)


  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     1/2            c.  butter or margarine -- softened-- used butter
  1                 c.  sugar
  2                     eggs
  2                 c.  all-purpose flour
  2               tsp.  baking powder
     1/2          tsp.  salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon (my addition)
     1/2            c.  milk
  1               tsp.  vanilla extract
  2                 c.  blueberries -- fresh or frozen (if using frozen berries, do not thaw)
                        Granulated sugar for sprinkling on tops-  used raw sugar

Grease a 6 c. jumbo muffin pan-the cups as well as the top of the pan, or grease and flour the cups and top of a 12 c. regular size muffin pan.
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Combine milk and vanilla (I do this right in the measuring cup). Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients; mix until well combined. Dust blueberries with a little flour to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the muffins. Fold berries into batter. Pile the batter evenly between the muffin cups (I use a cookie or ice cream scoop and pile it in-no need to spread it out once it's in the cups.) Sprinkle tops with granulated sugar. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven 35-40 minutes for the jumbo muffins or 25-30 minutes for the regular size or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pans 15-20 minutes. Run a butter knife around and under muffin to aid in removal from pans. Place on wire rack and cool completely. Makes 6 jumbo or 12 regular size muffins.

* It's going to look like WAY too much batter in each muffin cup-it's not. Just make sure that you grease the cups and the WHOLE top of the pan-and grease and flour the regular pans. Paper liners don't work with these muffins-they stick real bad to the paper. If you make sure the pan is greased (or sprayed with non stick cooking spray) all over it should be fine. Again-I STRONGLY recommend investing in the jumbo pan if you don't have one already-I do all my muffins in them now.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Speedy Shepherd's Pie- Taste of Home 100 Family Meals cookbook

How often does your family eat meals together?  My husband worked second shift for over a decade, and it was a rare occasion for us all to sit down at the same time and eat.    Once he went to a better schedule, mealtime moved back to the table.   This past fall, we bought a house, and in the chaos of moving, we drifted away again.    Son likes to eat in front of the computer or phone, husband in front of the tv.   I'm guilty too, sometimes the jigsaw puzzle I'm working on can render the dining room table unusable for days. Looking for inspiration, I turned to Taste of Home's 100 Family Meals .  As you can see by the number of pages I marked, there's lots to be found! There are suggestions for entire meals, complete with a list of groceries you need.    It's well categorized for easy mixing and matching too.       The first recipe I chose was Speedy Shepherd's Pie.    It's a fun twist on the traditional version, using taco seasoned meat as the base.
