I used to collect cookbooks. If it struck my fancy, it came home. I never bought a cookbook full price, however, They were always found in the remainder bins, the 60-90% off tables, or even better, used book stores and sales. During the week, I tend to fall back on the recipes I know and can whip up without too much trouble. It's on weekends that I try something new. I hauled out one of my chocolate cookbooks, leafed through it and found a recipe for Peanut Butter Surprise Muffins. The "surprise" was a chocolate kiss in the center. That sounded wonderful.
Butter? Check. Peanut butter? Check. Egg? Check. Flour, soda, powder? Check, check, check. That was it. No oil. No milk. Nothing else liquid. That's the full list of ingredients.
So, not everything I make comes out really good. One of my guild mates suggested I drizzle chocolate over these but that would be a waste of good chocolate. The top to the compost pile is somewhere in the yard so the squirrels will have fun jumping into the container and fishing out the peanuts. At least someone will like these.
