  1. I can't believe these don't have 100 reviews! Heavens to mergatroid are they good! I can't remember when I have enjoyed a muffin more and this is a show stopper with us! Loved, loved LOVED them!
  2. I agree with all of the other reviewers - these are excellent! I followed the recipe almost exactly, I only subbed fresh raspberries for frozen. They can out perfectly and are very yummy. Next time, I might add a tsp. of lemon extract, as I love the lemon flavour and I thought these could use a little more of it. Other than that, perfection! Thanks Mimi :).
  3. Lovely and delicious muffins that I have now made more times than I care to count! I made these for a bake sale and they were one of the first things to go. My grandchildren love them and request them when they come to stay for the weekend. I love that they are so flavorful, and easy to make. You are right up there with Kittencal as far as good recipes go Mimi... I hope others try all your recipes! I plan to :)
