Matthew Wolfe & Muffins

 It looks like the final book in the Matthew Wolfe series will make it online around June 1, as planned. Here's a peek at the cover of Book 3 which reveals the mystery of Matthew's parentage, gives us a peek into his future, and, of course, answers the question of whether or not he reneges on his vow never to marry.

My youngest granddaughter, age 14, and her adult cousin (male) prepared a Mother's Day lunch (for 8) of Baked Brie that was better than any I ever had a restaurant. 

A truly wonderful afternoon, with dessert (mini cheesecakes) served on the set of dishes once belonging to MY mother, the children's book author, Wilma Pitchford Hays.


Yet another clever spoof of the English language

This week I made a variation on the Muffin Meal recipe I've posted before. It was so tasty I thought I ought to pass it along.

Sausage-fennel muffins, looking just like Turkey-bacon muffins




This is one of my favorite recipes. It makes 16 meal-size muffins and can be frozen, with 2-3 popped out of the freezer bag for an instant meal at any time. (See below.)

2 cans of Pillsbury Grands biscuits.
1 pkg. of thin-sliced prepackaged (deli-style) turkey
c. ½-lb. bacon
1 pkg. sliced Swiss cheese

Honey Mustard (or your choice)
Saucy Susan (or other fruit sauce) 

Prep:  slice bacon crosswise into 1½-2" pieces. Cook until crisp. Drain on paper towel.

Prepare dipping sauce by combining honey mustard & Saucy Susan, to taste.

Preheat oven to 350°.  Spray or grease 2 muffin pans. (You will need 16 holes.)



1.  Slice each biscuit in half. (Keep  2nd muffin tube in fridge until ready to use.) Fit bottom halves into 16 muffin holes, pressing down & up the sides to form a “cup.”

2. Fold a turkey slice and lay it in the cup.

3. Cut cheese slices in half. Fold & place on top of the turkey.

4. Place one or two pieces of bacon on top of cheese.

5.  Fit the other half of biscuit on top, using your fingers to press the edges of top & bottom together.

Note:  any leftover bacon can be used to decorate the top of each muffin.

Bake 13-15 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. (For freezing, allow biscuits to cool completely.)  Serve plain or with sauce listed above.

Grace note 1: These muffins are designed to be "finger food." The sauce can be dished up from a central bowl to each plate. (Or whatever method works for the number of people being served.) As a single, I get to dip my muffins straight into the bowl. (Grin.) Or, if preferred, the sauce can be layered onto the cheese before baking.

Grace note 2: do not thaw frozen muffins ahead of use. When ready to eat, just thaw in microwave, then warm at a higher power level. [In my microwave - for 2 muffins:  45 seconds on Thaw (5), then 45 seconds on Full. (90 seconds from freezer to ready-to-eat.)]
