Yesterday I must have been feeling extra energetic. Not only had I been working all day long with hardly any breaks (laundry is piling up), but I was cooking the recipe for Food Star Friday and I always want to be extra particular about how I do that. My own recipes I tend to treat like Rachael Ray does…..just eyeball it…..a handful….a couple of glugs. But for Food Star Fridays recipes I want to be spot on so I can give you a genuine review of THEIR recipe, not my interpretation of it.
SO last night I was watching Food Network and Paula Deen was on. It was an episode called “Brunchin’ It” and during that episode she made some PB&J muffins. Well, one of Kevin’s favorite things is a PB&J sandwich. So I jumped off the couch on a mission to make the muffins for him while he mowed the lawn. My plan, have them done and ready when he was finished.
I was sooo happy that I accomplished my mission! Just as he was finishing up the muffins were coming out of the oven. They might not be the prettiest muffins on the block, but they taste wonderful. Not a heavy peanut butter taste. If you want more of a peanutty flavor I would leave off the compound butter. But that compound butter is AWESOME on toast as well as those muffins!
Side note* make sure you read the recipe for the compound butter first. I didn’t and had to wait for the butter to get to room temperature before I could top the muffins.
