Expert Tips

"These gorgeous muffins are a takeoff on a family favorite, my mom’s pumpkin bread recipe. Because the bread is so fantastic and easy to make, I realized I could easily transform it into muffins and add two of my favorite flavors, sweet and salty pecans and ginger." Laura Lufkin

Using freshly grated nutmeg in these muffins adds great flavor!
