In Which Muffins are STILL Awesome

So on the off chance that someone is actually reading this, and because I desperately do NOT want to do my homework (yet!), I've decided to come up with a list of Why Muffins are Awesome!

  1. Easy to make: throw in all the ingredients, mix 'em up, and toss in the oven in a muffin tin!
  2. Fast: From 12-25 minutes, tops! Provided you're not trying to take pictures one-handed...
  3. Portable: very important for anyone who's running out the door without breakfast!
  4. A great snack: especially when you need something to tide you over between breakfast and lunch. Or lunch and dinner. Or dinner and bedtime. You get the idea!
  5. Healthy: this clearly depends on what you put in said muffin, but they can be a great source of fiber, vitamins, oils, etc.
  6. Cute: you have to admit, it's easier to eat something if it looks good! Though that may just be me...
  7. Freeze VERY well: wrap in a double layer of saran wrap, or one layer and then pop in a zipping sandwich baggie, and you're good to go for your next major muffin craving!
  8. Make the house smell YUMMY! Especially just coming out of the oven :)
In conclusion, I would like to say GO BAKE A MUFFIN! :)

Did I miss anything?

In which Muffins are Awesome

Ode to a Muffin

thy beauty beckons, day or night
thy mix-ins fill me with delight
while flours of white and brown and tan
work out the balance twixt sweet and bran

the way thou fits within my palm,
when hours twixt meals stretch slow and long,
fills me, and stomach mine, with peace
and fiber quells the hungry beast

o, muffin, darling, come away!
accompany me in thoughts all day!
as I await with patience thin
to pull on out the muffin tin
