Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a must book that you will want to add to your recipe book collection." --Today's Woman

"With 200 recipes designed to cook in muffin tins, this cookbook offers easy portion control--one muffin is one portion--that is also easy to store for future meals, snacks, etc. and easy to clean up since you can use paper liners." --Parent Magazine

"Who would ever have imagined cooking up dinner in a muffin tin? Grandma might sniff at the idea of using her trusty tin for anything other than melt-in-your-mouth muffins, but once she tries Sember's mac and cheese or bite-sized cup of Chicken Florentine meatloaf, she's bound to be a believer. As for the kiddos--a tin of corndog cups or meatballs in spaghetti nests are sure to do the trick. And though there are dozens of simple kid-friendly recipes featured throughout, many of the recipes have a level of sophistication that adults can appreciate as well." --ParentMap.com

There were so many delicious sounding foods listed, I had trouble narrowing down to just one recipe!" --Cake Mom

Who doesn't like cute little one-hand dishes? Everything from muffins to meatloaf and puddings to potatoes are made in muffin tins. Recipes call for either mini, regular or jumbo tins. As the mother of four children, I enjoy making food fun for them and what's more fun than little individual dishes? We've had fun with this cookbook. We had the Chicken Florentine Meatloaf for supper the other night. I had ground turkey instead of chicken, but we all know they are interchangeable. It was a huge hit with the kids. What a great way to get some good spinach in them!! I myself hate regular cooked spinach, so I won't force my kids to eat it. I love being able to incorporate it in a dish that they love, though, and this one worked great. My third child just had her 11th birthday, so for her birthday breakfast I made the Baby Dutch Babies. I didn't have the strawberries, so I just sprinkled with powdered sugar and chocolate sprinkles and they were demolished in short order. We had company last night, and I made the Mini Yorkshire Puddings to go with the pork chops and potatoes and, once again, they were a big hit. This is not a cookbook for food snobs by any means. You're not going to find exotic ingredients and intricate processes, but who wants to cook that way all the time? This is a fun, easy cookbook great for casual entertaining, people with kids or people who just like fun food. I received a copy of this cookbook from Adams Media for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Have you been looking for some new inspiration in the kitchen? Then I think you may want to give The Muffin Tin Cookbook a try. I was skeptical and not sure how this cookbook would go over with me considering the theme. So what better way to review it than to read it from front to back and then grab a few recipes to try out. The Muffin Tin Cookbook includes 200 recipes that can be prepared using muffin tins. The Muffin Tin Cookbook is broken down into 9 chapters from Appetizers and Snacks to Desserts. Each individual recipe has a little icon next to it letting you know which size muffin pan is required for that particular recipe. Some of the recipes you cook directly in the tin while others require you to use liners, with some you also use pie crusts and even crescent rolls. You have a wide variety of different recipes to choose from so you will never get bored using your muffin tins. I really like how quick these recipes are to prepare, which had me turning to this book again and again for meals. They are also easy to serve and my family was happy to try the different dishes I whipped up. One of my favorites recipes in the book and one that my family loves are the "Stuffed Potato Cups" from chapter 6, "Potatoes, Rice, Pizza and Pasta. This recipe uses shredded hash browns as a base and regular sized muffin tins. Another great recipe that is a hit with kids are the "Mac and Cheese Cups," which uses whole wheat elbow macaroni and jumbo muffin tins. The great thing about this book is how each regular and jumbo muffin cup makes one serving size so portion control comes easier to those who are watching their weight. The author Brette Sember also lists calories, fat and other nutritional information per serving for easy reference. This is one great cookbook that I won't be lending out to any friend, as I know for sure if I do, I won't be getting it back.
