This would be a great recipe to use with one of those muffin top pans. The topping is so good! Not that they muffins themselves aren't good but the topping was extra good.
I used about 1/3 cup whole wheat flour. The plan was to use more but that's all I had left of my whole wheat flour.
My son had a birthday party to attend at one of those kiddie gyms. It happens to be right next door to a Tuesday Morning. We were a little bit early for the party so we popped in to Tuesday Morning and I walked out with two cookbooks. They don't have a huge selection but the prices weren't too bad. I've never heard of Home Cooking magazine but there are a lot of good recipes in this annual.
I did end up going to auction Friday and it was worth it if for no other reason I picked up the Sopranos Family Cookbook for $2. I already had the Entertaining with the Sopranos and this one looks even better. I picked up several other good cookbooks too. I had to tell my cookbook guy that he probably wouldn't see much of me before spring and I don't think he was too happy. It's rare that I spend over $10 - he can't be getting rich off of me. As much as I enjoy the cheap cookbook fix, I don't enjoy driving up there in the dark.
Blast From The Past: Butterscotch Pie from November 2006. That's my brother's favorite pie and it's time to make it again like I do every Thanksgiving. Haagen Daaz has gone on sale 2 for $5 before Thanksgiving for the past several years. This year it was 2 for $6.
Question of the Day: Are you celebrating Thanksgiving?
