Make It Mine Muffins


  The New Better Homes and Gardens Red Plaid cookbook has several recipes that are recipes and methods as well. This recipe for muffins has the basic recipe and then a list of add-ins that will change it from a sweet muffin to a savory muffin with the additions of your choice. The additions get lengthy so I am just going to mention some of them and then what I used.
