I’m celebrating the publication of my new book, The Muffin Tin Cookbook, which has 200 recipes for all types of dishes made in muffin tins: appetizers, entrees, sides, breakfast, desserts, mini-pies, breads, and much more, as well some muffin and cupcake recipes. Muffin tin cooking is great for portion control: one “muffin” cup is one portion, so there’s no fooling yourself into having just a little bit more.

This kind of cooking is also guaranteed to get your kids interested in new foods. Kids have been conditioned to believe that anything cooked in a muffin/cupcake tin is fun and delicious, so they are excited to try the recipes.

This makes a great Mother’s Day gift, and it’s also a great shower gift.

The Muffin Tin Cookbook

March 13, 2012

My author copies of my new book, The Muffin Tin Cookbook, have just landed on my doorstep and I’m so excited to see and hold the book! It has 200 recipes of every kind of dish imaginable (sides, entrees, breakfast, appetizers, breads, dessert, and more) all made in muffin tins. There are recipes using mini, regular, jumbo and even the new square muffin tins. This book was so fun to write (and taste!).

Muffin tin meals are super kid-friendly AND they are great for portion control for us adults too. Some of my favorite recipes include:

Shrimp Cakes with Cilantro Lime Dipping Sauce

Moroccan Chicken Pot Pie

Potato Parsnip Cups

Mini Ice-Cream Cakes

and there are lots of recipes for mini-pies made in muffin tins (SO easy to make and so cute!). The pub date is listed as mid-April, but it’s in warehouses and will begin shipping sooner than that.

I’m available for guest blog spots and Q&As, so if you have room on your blog, let me know!
