But that left me with a hole in my blog lineup at about 10PM on Sunday. Thank goodness I have a stockpile of posts! Today, I'm choosing to share a very simple recipe with you. And one that's PERFECT for Monday night football in case you need something to nosh on during the big game (WHO DEY!).
It's also a great quick meal to bring to new parents. They freeze well (zap them in the microwave to refresh!) and their bite-sized nature makes them easy to pop in your mouth with one hand (sans plate) as you try to maneuver a baby with the other. Just ask my friends Sigmund and Kristen whom I brought these little muffins all way from Cincinnati to New York City to Boston when I visited them and their new baby earlier this Summer.
