Pairs Well With
I bought a cookbook last year before Christmas because I wanted to bake the gifts I was to give my friends and family. I bought "Incredibly Easy Gifts from the Kitchen" on sale at Borders and found this wonderful muffin recipe. This could also act as a lovely dessert if you were oh-so-inclined.
These muffins are delicious, and the white chocolate chips bring out their sass.
