The best part about ranch dressing is the way it tastes. The worst part about ranch dressing is the instant five pounds it puts on your hips. No really, it’s super bad for you.
You should know – there aren’t actually oatmeal cookies in these muffins. They are muffins that taste like oatmeal cookies.
Yes, Greek Bowl, and when you say it you need to kind of shout it like, Opah! Disclaimer – if you don’t like your food to touch on your plate, just turn away now.
Here you go, Lynnie my love!
These muffins are not fancy, by any means. They are from Joy of Cooking and they come together in ten minutes flat. Seriously, they are one of fastest, easiest baked goods for you to have a go at. The thing is, I’m not a fan of fancy most of the time. These don’t need coconut milk, brazil nuts or cocoa nibs to be enticing… the smell in your kitchen will do the trick.
Since I don’t have a lot of storage in my little house, I’m not a fan of kitchen appliances that serve only one purpose. I don’t have a waffle maker, a popcorn machine, an ice cream machine or a pan to poach eggs. I did, however, receive a non-requested panini press from a wedding well-wisher. One might think a panini press is only used to make paninis, but one would be wrong.
Whenever we sell our current home, I am going to make this bread before the open house. If you walked into a house that smelled like this bread, you’d make an instantaneous offer well over the asking price. It’d be a reflex, you’d not be able to help yourself. It smells like cinnamon, and also like Christmas morning. It tastes slightly sweet and yeasty… amazing. The best part is, you don’t need (or, knead, mwahaha) a bread machine to make this!
If you’re a new cook and want to feel good about your skills, make soup. If you want to impress people into thinking you’re a way better cook than you are, make pureed soup—and garnish it with something. Garnish is super fancy.
Technically this should be called “soybean hummus” but I think the connotation for soy bean is MUCH different than for edamame. Edamame makes you think of swanky sushi restaurants, whereas soy beans sound like something husbands and kids won’t eat.
