Isn’t it weird how something can take you back in time!? I started out assembling the ingredients for this recipe, and memories of baking with my Grandma came flooding into my mind. I am not one to cook with shortening…really ever. I have been known to skip a recipe for the simple fact it has shortening in it…but a few of these recipes in this cookbook use it so I am willing to comply and check them out. If you would like the recipe this week, check out Alisa’s blog.
As I was starting the batter, I could see my Grandma and I baking with that HUGE canister of Crisco sitting on the counter. I just had to laugh out loud. Does anyone else remember that big blue can…I wonder how long it took her to go through it????
Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed making these muffins probably for the simple fact I felt my Grandma with me. I could hear her laughing about me and the Crisco! I know she would LOVE that I am participating in this cooking group and if she was still here she would want to know all about it.
These muffins were super easy to make and really delicious…I just need to figure out what to substitute for the shortening! 🙂 Everyone loved them and said “They are a keeper”!
