Over the Counter #136

What book caught my eye this week as it passed over the library counter and under my scanner?

Muffin Tin Chef by Matt Kadey. As I eat supper at work 1-2 times a week, I thought these 'little' ideas would freeze and travel well. Especially the mini mac and cheese!

From the publisher, Ulysses Press:

"Do you know the muffin pan? Most people think they do, but just wait! With faster baking times to keep cooks on schedule, smaller portion sizes to keep waists trim, and a tasty appearance to keep guests impressed, the recipes in Muffin Tin Mania make for miniature versions of all one’s favorite treats. From curry asparagus frittatas and Swiss chard quiches to salmon lentil cakes and butternut squash souffl├ęs, these are perfect finger foods, kids’ party snacks, or unique dinner treats. Muffin Tin Mania provides step-by-step recipes and color photos to help create mini dishes that can’t fail. It suggests useful tips and tricks on avoiding burnt, dried out, or “stuck” meals, as well as advice on necessary materials for making muffin-sized magic. The author, a registered dietitian, is an expert on packing maximum flavor into miniature portions to ensure that everyone is healthy, happy, and satisfied."

(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But... I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)

Sorry Julie I was deleting spam comments and yours got mistakenly deleted. Surprise! There's no way I'm up at 630 if I don'thave to be. You can schedule your posts, so I've chosen 630 for you early risers!
