I never realized there are actually people who exist in this world who don’t want death-by-chocolate cake for breakfast…until I went to visit my friend Cate and she looked at me with the craziest eyes I’ve ever seen when I ordered a cinnamon raisin bagel with strawberry cream cheese for breakfast. Apparently, she’s one of those people.

This didn’t bother me much until last week when I was trying to figure out what to bake for an 8AM class that I’m TA-ing this semester. I remembered Cate and her savory breakfast needs and promptly started to hyperventilate.  Nope, the chocolate chip muffins I was planning on bringing surely wouldn’t do.  These cheddar scallion scones, though?  Perfect!  Read More


Pumpkin Cheddar Muffins Recipe

As an unapologetic sweets lover who bakes every week, I rarely feel pulled towards a savory baked good recipe. I’ve heard wonders of cheddar scones, but a sweet scone draws my attention faster than you can say butter and flour.


This recipe for Pumpkin Cheddar Muffins is the exception to my sugary rule.  They’re moist from the pumpkin puree, and sharp and spicy from cheddar, cayenne, and black pepper.

Perfect on the side of a healthy meal of roasted vegetables with brown rice, or toasted for a morning meal on the run, these muffins are well worth having around.

I saw firsthand the influence these muffins wield.  I made a batch for my pumpkin carving party last fall, and they trumped my Pumpkin Pie and Buttermilk Cinnamon Doughnuts, no competition.

I’ve had a life-long love for street foods.  One of my earliest memories is traveling to Berlin with my parents and sisters.  The scent of the caraway was enticing and left me wanting more of the same.

Often you see sweet incarnations of this German staple, but for me, the combination of Cheddar cheese and caraway seeds can’t be beat.
