The Muffin Tin Cookbook

I recently received The Muffin Tin Cookbook, by Brette Sember, for review, from muffin tin cookbookAdams Media.  I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was to try this cookbook.  I have one of the pickiest eaters ever.  At least, I think so.  My son would like to protest all things green and all things new or not previously served.

It is a battle getting him to eat anything that is unfamiliar.  One look and it’s, “Mommy, I don’t like that.”

We are working on that attitude.

I’ve read, though, that if you can make it fun, they are more likely to try it.  Hence, my excitement over this cookbook.  What can be more fun than itty bitty sized meals?

I decided to try the Sloppy Joe Cupcakes one night (see page 59 of the cookbook for their recipe).  Of course, I am not one to leave a recipe unaltered, so I adjusted it a bit.  For one, my son will typically eat my Simple Sloppy Joe Recipe, so I decided to use it instead of the sloppy joe recipe in the book.  As well, the recipe called for refrigerated pie crust.  I thought I grabbed refrigerated pie crust when I went to the grocer.  Instead, I had grabbed refrigerated crescent rolls.  oops.  I decided to make it work.

Work it did.  Apparently, food is much more fun if one can hold it.  And we all know that fun equals edible.  HA!
