"This is a must book that you will want to add to your recipe book collection." --Today's Woman
"With 200 recipes designed to cook in muffin tins, this cookbook offers easy portion control--one muffin is one portion--that is also easy to store for future meals, snacks, etc. and easy to clean up since you can use paper liners." --Parent Magazine
"Who would ever have imagined cooking up dinner in a muffin tin? Grandma might sniff at the idea of using her trusty tin for anything other than melt-in-your-mouth muffins, but once she tries Sember's mac and cheese or bite-sized cup of Chicken Florentine meatloaf, she's bound to be a believer. As for the kiddos--a tin of corndog cups or meatballs in spaghetti nests are sure to do the trick. And though there are dozens of simple kid-friendly recipes featured throughout, many of the recipes have a level of sophistication that adults can appreciate as well." --ParentMap.com

Cooking things other than muffins and cupcakes in muffin tins is nothing particularly new. Betty Crocker's early 1960's Dinner For Two cookbook featured individual meatloaves baked in muffin tins and baked eggs, with or without a bologna cup underneath, were quite common during the 50's and 60's. Grandma does have to wonder, though, why on earth one would bother with some of this.
The Cocktail Meatballs started life decades ago as a stunningly easy and delicious slow cooker recipe. This is one Grandma has been making for many years. A mere dozen meatballs baked in individual muffin cups seems both terribly messy (the meatballs are cooked in a sauce of grape jelly and barbecue sauce) and FAR short of the number required for even a very small party. Every time Grandma has ever served these or seen them served they are the very first appetizer to disappear - no matter how many you make. Grandma usually starts with five pounds of ground meat.
Chicken Tortilla Pie is just fussy. One starts by cutting 18 little circles out of 3 large flour tortillas. A recipe for Tuna Burgers calls for baking them in regular sized muffin cups, to produce a burger that is about 2" across, which the author then suggests serving on hamburg buns . . . . .Read more ›
The Muffin Tin Cookbook is broken down into 9 chapters from Appetizers and Snacks to Desserts. Each individual recipe has a little icon next to it letting you know which size muffin pan is required for that particular recipe. Some of the recipes you cook directly in the tin while others require you to use liners, with some you also use pie crusts and even crescent rolls. You have a wide variety of different recipes to choose from so you will never get bored using your muffin tins.
I really like how quick these recipes are to prepare, which had me turning to this book again and again for meals. They are also easy to serve and my family was happy to try the different dishes I whipped up. One of my favorites recipes in the book and one that my family loves are the "Stuffed Potato Cups" from chapter 6, "Potatoes, Rice, Pizza and Pasta. This recipe uses shredded hash browns as a base and regular sized muffin tins. Another great recipe that is a hit with kids are the "Mac and Cheese Cups," which uses whole wheat elbow macaroni and jumbo muffin tins.
The great thing about this book is how each regular and jumbo muffin cup makes one serving size so portion control comes easier to those who are watching their weight. The author Brette Sember also lists calories, fat and other nutritional information per serving for easy reference. This is one great cookbook that I won't be lending out to any friend, as I know for sure if I do, I won't be getting it back.
There are no pictures for most of the recipes so I found myself wondering often if things came out properly with the recipes. The instructions were also inconsistent and lacking.
One problem I had was for most dishes you have to grease the muffin pans but it would often give you instructions to simply "prepare" the muffin tin. Prepare with what? Oil, butter, butter/flour? These things make a difference. Of course you can use your best judgment, but it would be nice for the author to guide the cook a bit better. Also, some recipes tell you to simply place x-amount of oil in the muffin cup. I understand that usually implies you spread the oil around to grease the whole space, but I wasn't sure if the author intentionally left out instructions to spread the oil around because of some better method being just leaving the oil sitting in the bottom of the muffin cup - no, you're supposed to spread it around (my stuck-on yorkshire puddings will tell you), as I knew I should have, but would have appreciated the author explicitly stating so.Read more ›
