Then I heard my favorite magazine was reworking the dish for their new cookbook I …

Sausage Muffin

I love McDonald’s sausage Mcmuffins. However I am sure their mcmuffin is loaded with ingredients I’d prefer to keep out of my family’s diet. I used my homemade muffins for this but you could buy English muffins from the store.

English Muffin Bread

This bread really was not hard to make but it was a pain in the butt getting it into the baking pans. The dough is so sticky it does not want to release from anything. Not sure if there is anything you …
