I made these because I was looking for a higher protein snack to feed my toddler, but they're so moist and delicious they don't last long in our house. Designed to be wholesome, the end result is more decadent -- like a French Pear Tart in muffin form. Using ricotta in the muffins is an idea that came from baking queen Dorie Greenspan. If you're not going to eat them within a day or two, store them in the refrigerator or freeze them. —Savour
I'm a Los Angeles based home cook with a full time job and 2 young kids, so my recipes tend to be accessible to busy people. I firmly believe that anyone can cook good, everyday meals from scratch with sufficient tools and encouragement, and I try to create meals that are delicious, wholesome and not too intimidating. Most of my favorite recipes tend to be twists on a classic dish that makes it new and exciting.
