Somehow, over the years, my friends and I have developed using the word muffin as a term of endearment. Not sure how it started, but it’s so strongly in my vocabulary now that I even refer to my cat as muffin. It works because who doesn’t love a muffin! Perfect for breakfast, snacks, taking it … More Oatmeal Muffins

It … More Pao de queijo – Brazilian cheese bread
