If you are looking for a cookbook with rare and very original recipes, this is the book for you. (Simply Being Mommy 2010-12-03)

In my last article I mentioned 14 healthy snacks for kids, one of which was homemade muffins. Beyond blueberry and bran muffins, I have found a book that offers an amazingly creative, tasty, and healthy variety of muffin recipes. This may very well be the only muffin recipe book you ever need: 750 Best Muffin Recipes. 750 Best Muffin Recipes is the definitive collection of muffin recipes! It offers an amazing variety of flavors and options covering many food preferences. The author, Camilla V. Saulsbury, is a freelance food writer and recipe developer. She has won several of North America's top cooking competitions, has made multiple appearances on the Food Network, and has been featured in the New York Times as well as many magazines. They are all easy to make and fabulous to eat! After we make a batch, we put a couple in a glass container in the refrigerator and we freeze the rest, to keep them fresh. When we want one we take it out of the fridge, refilling that container from the freezer when necessary. They will keep in the freezer for a long time. There are 750 amazing muffin recipes in the book and while I can't focus on them all, I wanted to at least mention the superfood muffins, since I think these would be great food options for kids: for breakfast, lunch bags, and snacks! Although there is no exact definition for what constitutes a 'superfood', it is often described as a food considered especially nutritious or otherwise beneficial to health and well-being. Wouldn't you love for your child to eat more of these items? I know I would! Here are two superfood muffin recipes from the book that your family is sure to love! Wouldn't you love for your child to eat more of these items? I know I would! This is an absolutely top-notch muffin recipe cookbook; the variety and uniqueness just blew me away! Here are a few other things that stood out to me: Color Photos: There are several gorgeous color photos of some amazing recipes! That's a great place to start when trying a new cookbook! Healthy: I was impressed by several of the categories that promote healthier living such as Farmer's Market Muffins, Superfood Muffins, Gluten-Free Muffins, and Vegan Muffins. Two units of measure: For each recipe, the measurements are in English units and metric. With such unique and gourmet recipes, you could find some wonderful muffin ideas to make for bridal showers, baby showers, or any other party or get together. I really love this book and was thinking that it would make a great gift for many people or occasions: Wedding: Most couples register for muffin pans on their gift registry. Wouldn't it be a neat idea for a gift to buy a muffin pan and this cookbook? Birthday: This would be a great gift for a fellow foodie, or for someone who is hard to buy for, or who already has everything! (Mama Wendy Parenting Tips 365 2011-01-26)

As January's cold gray days drag on, my thoughts turn naturally to food. Wouldn't a steaming hot muffin go down well right now? If you're looking to add more healthy ingredients to your kids' diets, try out 750 Best Muffin Recipes. Author Saulsbury is also a fitness instructor and personal trainer, and in the cookbook she packs "superfood" ingredients into an array of irresistible, easy-to-make muffins, perfect for kids' breakfasts, lunch bags, and after-school snacks.

More important, of course, are the muffins. Here are a couple that got my attention. (Irv Dean Daily Gazette, NY 2011-01-13)

A fun book. Almost everything can be put in a muffin -- according to this book. Breakfast muffins we all know and dessert, too. We don't have muffins to go on soup but there are plenty in this book to go along with soup. I'm looking forward to trying out the Pecan Strawberry Jam muffins with my home made jam. I love that they have Vegan and Gluten Free. One recipe I tried was vegan, but I didn't realize it until later when I thinking about the recipe and about how it didn't have any eggs. They were delicious and not too dense. The global muffin section highlights recipes from all different countries. We even found a Hungarian Hazelnut Muffin. This is a very cool book. (Cookerati.com 2011-01-19)

Quick and versatile, muffins can go from being a hearty and nutritious quick bread that can fill out a light meal of soup and/or salad, all the way to sweet and light -- something just this side of a cupcake. Most of the time, you can be as creative as you want if you are starting with a plain, basic recipe. Many will work quite well with the addition of fruit or nuts or even diced meats or shredded cheese. But if you're stuck for ideas, or you just really love to make muffins, you can't go wrong with a cookbook devoted entirely to the easiest of little quick breads. Camilla Saulsbury is a California food writer and recipe developer who has just published what has to be the definitive book on muffins: 750 Best Muffin Recipes: Everything from Breakfast Classics to Gluten-Free, Vegan & Coffeehouse Favorites (Robert Rose, $27.95). Honestly, if you have this one on the shelf, you won't ever need to look for another muffin recipe source. (Wendy Burke Winnipeg Free Press 2011-01-19)

Stand out feature: That anyone can think of 750 muffin recipes. Ask me and I'm stumped after Banana Walnut and Morning Glory. Who'll love it: Muffin fans. The gluten-free section is large enough to make this worthwhile to those who can't eat wheat. If you try one recipe: Chocolate Basil. Yes, you heard right. Chocolate Basil. (Charmian Christie Christie's Corner 2011-01-01)

750 Best Muffin Recipes: Everything from breakfast classics to gluten-free, vegan and coffeehouse favorites by Camilla V. Saulsbury is quickly becoming one of my favorite new cookbooks. And I'm not alone. (As I write this the book has a over 30 reviews on Amazon.com and they're all five stars.)

It's full of a remarkable variety of both classic and creative muffin recipes from scratch. Once you begin baking muffins from this book, you'll never have to depend on muffins from a box again.

Muffins are one of my favorite things to bake. They're a great choice whenever you get the urge to bake because they are so quick and easy.

This is a wonderful cookbook for all levels of bakers. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. There are 24 pages of full sized pictures of the finished products to tempt you.

All the muffins I've made so far have been extremely easy and turned out perfectly. Favorites to date include the best basic muffins, whole wheat applesauce muffins and Boston brown bread muffins. I can't wait to try the chocolate macaroon muffins, when I'm feeling decadent.

750 Best Muffin Recipes begins with everything you need to know to master from scratch muffin making including information about key ingredients and essential equipment, as well as baking tips and advice. The author's writing style is warm and engaging.

Chapters include:

Top 25 Classic Muffins:Think basic muffins with straightforward flavors - blueberry, pumpkin and bran - for example.

Breakfast Muffins: Over 80 recipes for muffins that are perfect for breakfast - granola muffins, oatmeal muffins, jelly doughnut muffins - and many many more.

Muffins are one of America's best contributions to baked goods. In Camilla's book she includes the classics with timely and helpful variations -- how to luxe them up, how to make them healthier but still tasty and how to make them accessible to people with dietary issues. She takes the muffin concept and runs with it, creating sweet, savor and truly decadent flavor profiles that are creative and modern.

Most importantly, Camilla has written a number of fantastic cookbooks at this point and is truly a master at communicating simple and effective recipes that are approachable for even beginner cooks.

There is something in this book for everyone!

I love to eat, but I have to admit I hate to cook. Thank goodness my husband is an aspiring chef! While whipping up meals is not my thing, I do enjoy baking. Muffins are one of my favorites, so one recent Sunday morning, I opened this cookbook in search of a tasty treat. I settled on the Raspberry Vanilla Muffin. GOOD CHOICE! Delicious, moist, berry-filled. What more can I say. The instructions were easy to follow and I loved the addition of some healthy ingredients like soy yogurt and flax seeds. Can't wait to try one of the gluten-free muffins. With 750 recipes, my Sunday mornings will be something to look forward to for years! Homemade muffins are so much better.750 Best Muffin Recipes: Everything from breakfast classics to gluten-free, vegan and coffeehouse favorites

With the proliferation of baking blogs, I was dubious that a muffin book was actually necessary. Why buy a cookbook when Tastespotting exists? But this book is definitely necessary for anyone with a deep love for muffins who is looking to branch out beyond the typical banana or corn muffins. Don't get me wrong, Camilla Saulsbury has some great recipes for classic muffins, but the real strength of this book lies in its variety. There are sweet muffins, savory muffins, gluten-free muffins, vegan muffins, and even a section dedicated to global muffins. With 750 recipes, there is truly a muffin for every season, every craving, every picky eater, every food allergy, every dietary restriction.

My favorites so far have been the pistachio citrus muffins and the chocolate basil muffins. The latter is the perfect way to use up all your summer basil once you get sick of salads and pesto.

I've been working my way through this book for Muffin Mondays at the office, with 10 down and 740 left to go. I'm not quite sure who loves this book more, myself or my coworkers.
