I recently bought the Flour Bakery + Cafe's cookbook and I can't wait to try everything in it. The first morning I had the book, I wanted to make the Good Morning Muffins, but I didn't have half the ingredients so I came up with this recipe based very very loosely on it...so I'll say it was inspired by the Good Morning Muffins, but I still need to try Joanne Chang's recipe. This was a great use of the some of the 30 pounds of apples I had in the fridge after apple-picking. —Meatballs&Milkshakes
I'm an ex-finance, nonprofit fundraiser by day and a (mostly) Italian cook and blogger by night. I love having friends over for dinner and my favorite evenings are when we spend them at home together cooking dinner and chatting. I'm an avid cooking show fan, and my favorite eating cities are New York, San Francisco, Paris, and Rome.
