Hello! My name is Amy and I live in beautiful sunny San Diego. I've been out of the game for some time but I'm coming back!
My Inspiration for the blog
My inspiration comes from Melissa d'Arabian, the Next Food Network Star. Sounds silly but her recipe on the final episode (admittedly the only episode I saw) is the inspiration for the whole blog. The first time I made this recipe was on Thanksgiving a.k.a The Big Show. I love LOVE potatoes gratin and thought this recipe would be a great way to change it up. I made two trays, so 24 potato gratin "muffins." They were a HUGE hit and thus started my love for all things muffin sized. This blog will show case recipes featuring the muffin pan, different types of pans, and the occasional random-ness I decide to blog about. I am excited to start this journey and hope you decide to follow along!
Now for the Disclaimer...
The Disclaimer: I am not a mom, I am not always a faithful blogger, and I don't make every recipe I feature! *cringe*
Okay so I'll explain. I have been following so many fun, inspiring blogs like Picky-Palate.com and KevinandAmanda.com. Jenny of Picky-Palate is an adorable mom, posting recipes for her kids or made with her kids. Amanda of KevinandAmanda is a blogger at heart, you can just tell. She is faithful about writing and takes the most amazing photos. Both always take pictures of their own food and feature only recipes they have tried themselves. I am not anything like Jenny or Amanda. But one can hope :0)
Just so you all know, while some of the pictures aren't my own, some definitely are (mostly the ugly ones)! I do make a lot of the yummy muffin pan recipes myself, most of the time, the ones I've featured on here. However, I sometimes make them after the fact AND my pictures are not as good as the ones I've found at the original source so I stick with the pretty shot.
The site is meant to catalog my hours of scouring the web for muffin pan recipes. I want this blog to be the go to site for muffin pan recipes. I WANT TO START A REVOLUTION! hehe Okay not really, but I am hoping the idea of food in a muffin pan will move its way out of just desserts and into all types of food. I hear from nice folks all the time who say "I have this recipe I've been making in my muffin pan for years." SEND THEM OVER! I would love to feature your recipe on this blog. It's a group effort!
Okay... now that that's out of the way let me say...
