Cheddar Onion Muffins

"This hearty muffin is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I can make them quickly when I don't have any bread or rolls on hand; and we especially enjoy them hot from the oven with soups or stews."

  1. Wonderful muffins! The first time I’ve used a recipe and not felt a need to tweak it a little. They come out perfect every time (have made them multiple times since discovering the recipe a couple of months ago) and passed the recipe on to several friends. These muffins are now my kids’ reliable favorites and a brunch staple. Simply awesome!
  2. I would add even more cheese next time.
  3. I used this recipe as a guideline but made too many substitutions & alterations (tofu sour cream w/ dill, soy milk, 1/2 cheddar & 1/2 mozzarella and different amts of parsley & onion) to give a meaningful rating. That said, the texture was good & I will definitely make again w/ additional alterations. Thanks for an inspiring recipe!
  4. These were tasty, but a bit too oniony. Next time I make them, I'll reduce the amount to 1/4 cup and use green onions. I also added 1/2 cup of boiled ham to the recipe.


<p>Life often interupts our comfortable routines in very unexpected ways and in the past three years I've certainly faced some challenges.&nbsp; As a health nut who ate mostly vegetarian I was beyond shocked to discover that I was diabetic.&nbsp;<img title=Yell src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-yell.gif border=0 alt=Yell /> I shouted and rebelled and cried.&nbsp; But the good news is that I can control my glucose levels simply by eating very low carb.&nbsp; What a complete turn around it was to&nbsp;pass up&nbsp;all my high carb vegetarian foods like grains, and veggies and embrace meat!&nbsp;<img title=Surprised src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-surprised.gif border=0 alt=Surprised /> I've adjusted to this limited diet and thanks to Zaar can eat a nice variety of healthful meals.</p> <p>&nbsp;The next challenge was a freakish fall I took while in New York with my daughter that left me paralyzed and in much pain. I thank God that I am so much better today after more than two years recovery, with total mobility and just some minor pain in my arms and hands.&nbsp; Cooking and communicating here was not really on my priority list.&nbsp; But, I am back in action and ready to cook, take photos, and enjoy this wonderful community of friends.<img title=Laughing src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif border=0 alt=Laughing /></p> <p>My husband and I continue to enjoy our grandchildren and being closely involved with their day to day activities.&nbsp; I am also the proud owner of a sweet grey and white cat who came to my door as a little kitten 6 months ago.&nbsp; Her name is Bonny and you can read her story here:&nbsp; <a href= target=_blank></a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;When I have time for myself, I love to do all things artistic...drawing, pastels, paper craft, scrapbooking, and most recently jewelry making.&nbsp; I have set up a website on ETSY ( shown on this page by my website)and you can go there and see my creations.<img title=Cool src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cool.gif border=0 alt=Cool /><br /><br /><br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /></p>
