When you get right down to it, I think a bran muffin is my very favorite breakfast baked good. Fresh from the oven, drenched in obscene amounts of melted butter, there's just not anything any better. I've been making this one for close to 50 years; it's evolved a bit over the years. —Kayb
6 (2 muffins each)

stick butter, melted
diced dried figs or dried fruit of your choice
I'm a business professional who learned to cook early on, and have expanded my tastes and my skills as I've traveled and been exposed to new cuisines and new dishes. I love fresh vegetables, any kind of protein on the grill, and breakfasts that involve fried eggs with runny yolks. My recipes tend toward the simple and the Southern, with bits of Asia or the Mediterranean or Mexico thrown in here and there. And a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on a float in the lake, as pictured, is a pretty fine lunch!
