Streusel Topped Coffee Cake Muffins

Is it wrong to use Paula Dean cupcake holders when making a Martha Stewart recipe? I hope not. Cause if these coffee cake muffins are wrong, I don’t want to be right. Coffee cake is superb in general, but individualized servings in a sweet cupcake wrapper is just downright evil. Resistance is futile when you don’t even need utensils to indulge in this moist cake smothered inside and out with delicious streusel. [Read more…]

Peeps are one of my favorite treats on the planet, and I’m practically a genius and I totally dig Jesus. So maybe Peeps are just the sweet of choice for those who are truly mentally gifted. Or maybe Bible reading stimulates the sugar receptors in our brains? Yeah. That must be it. 🙂 [Read more…]
