Expert Tips

Rosemary’s Latin name means “dew of the sea.” A member of the mint family, this fragrant, Mediterranean herb was once “prescribed” to help improve memory.

For nicely shaped muffins that have no rim around the edge, grease only the bottoms of the muffin cups, using either shortening or cooking spray.

Microwaving is perfect for reheating leftover muffins. Reheat on Medium (50%) just until warm. One muffin: 15 to 30 seconds; two muffins: 25 to 40 seconds; three muffins: 35 to 60 seconds; and four muffins: 45 seconds to 1 minute 15 seconds.
