1. Easy to substitute ingredients with what you have around the house.
2. Most foods last for multiple meals and if not, the book mentions that something should be served and eaten fresh.
3. Huge variety throughout the book both in types of foods and variety among ingredients.
4. Most recipes are easy and if not super easy, the extra steps make the food so delicious that it's worth your time.
1. At least one recipe omitted the baking temperature, but I was able to figure it out.
2. The book doesn't lay flat on its own.
Even with tiny deficiencies, the recipes are so tasty that they're worth it. I highly recommend Matt's website as a compliment to the book and he's always been incredibly helpful about answering questions and expounding on techniques as well as unusual ingredients.
Muffin Tin Chef, written by Matt Kadey, has a broader range than I had imagined, with recipes for Breakfast, Appetizers, Main and Side Dishes and Desserts. The author give interesting insights and tips into what types of muffin tins work the best for which recipes, eg. silicon is great for panna cotta, not so great for browning pie crusts.
I loved how many savory dishes there were and how the muffin tin is used to create both complete dishes, like the Crustless Smoked Salmon Quiches or used as little cups to hold the food inside of, like the Pancetta Cups with Fig Jam. We made the Butternut Squash Souffles (fluffy and delicious!) and the Spinach Dip bowls, which are made simply from cutting rounds from bread and pressing them into the muffin cups before filling with the spinach mixture. I (and the whole family) loved how fun they were to make and to eat, too!
The author also encourages us to think beyond the typical muffins and cupcakes for dessert and branch out to cheesecakes, petite pies and more. I also really appreciated that, as a dietician, the author created recipes for sweets that are also wholesome, with ingredients like maple syrup, low fat ricotta and whole wheat flour, saving me the hassle (and experimentation) of having to tweak them myself.Read more ›
Ingredients: whole wheat pastry flour is NOT an exotic ingredient. In fact, many recipes nowadays are focusing on using this kind of flour. You can find it at Walmart. If it's not something you typically use-consider buying a small bag. There are uncommon health-based ingredients in every recipe HOWEVER there are also suggestions for "regular" ingredients instead (if you choose to forego the healthy option) for instance-1/2 cup almond milk OR regular milk. Another example: 2 tbsp grapeseed oil OR canola oil.
Of course, the author makes suggestions for sustainable meat options and other health-based companies that you can buy products from, but common sense cooking tells you that you don't HAVE to buy those items to have a successful dish. The recipe will not be compromised, I promise. I've been using this book nonstop and haven't had a failure yet.
Equipment: You don't necessarily need several types of pans. I didn't have a jumbo muffin pan for the tuna noodle cups so I used my standard size tin and just had smaller, but more servings. Again, common sense cooking.
Skill Level: The recipes range from super easy and fast to a little more complex and time consuming. I like the diversity. On weekends, I've made a more complicated dish or an appetizer. On weekdays, I've made some pretty quick and simple stuff.Read more ›

Although I like the cookbook, it really didn't have as many recipes that I felt I could make easily in a muffin tin. Maybe I will use it a bit and discover something different.Published 14 months ago by Stardust
