Donut Muffins

I would be a horrible person if I didn't share this recipe with you.

These are delicious. So much so that...well...

I. Have. No. Words.

Run, don't walk, to your kitchen and whip up a batch of these babies.

My husband and I *might* have just plowed through a dozen of them in the space of about 7 minutes.

(I've taken the recipe from this website. Bless this website for so many reasons. She has some typos in her recipe--I've fixed that).

Ingredients (muffins):
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter, melted
1/4 t. ground nutmeg
1/2 c. milk
1 t. baking powder
1 c. all-purpose flour

Ingredients (coating):
1/4 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. sugar
1 t. cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease a mini-muffin tin, set aside.
2. Mix up the 1/2 c. sugar, 1/4 c. melted butter and nutmeg in a large bowl.
3. Add flour, milk, and baking soda and mix together until just combined.
4. Fill muffin tins about 3/4 full and bake for 15-17 minutes.
5. While muffins are baking, combine sugar and cinnamon into a bowl, set aside.
6. Melt 1/4 c. butter and place it in a bowl. (I just melted my butter in a skillet and left it there).
7. When muffins are done and cool enough to handle, remove them from the pan. Dip the tops of the muffins in butter and then roll the WHOLE muffin in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Let cool and then try not to pig out too badly!!

Side note: This recipe is my nephew can eat them. So for all of you who have adorable nephews with egg allergies, this one's a winner!

Radish Dip

So, this is the second week of our CSA (crop share association), and this is the second week that we've had an inordinate amount of radishes in our share.

I'm not really a fan of radishes.

But my friend clued me into this dip, and I'm thrilled about it.

1 (8 oz.) pkg cream cheese
8-12 radishes, washed and chopped in half
3/4 - 1 t. salt

Optional ingredients:

1. Put radishes in a food processor and pulse until radishes are in teeny-tiny pieces....think crushed candy'll look similar. =)

2. In a bowl, mix the radishes with the cream cheese and salt (and optional ingredients, if you like) with a spoon or stand mixer.

Serve with tortilla chips, celery, cucumber....really, it's all delicious.
