If you’re looking for quick, from-scratch, appropriately sized meals, then I highly recommend you get the cookbook Muffin Tin Chef. Who knew that a muffin tin is the most versatile piece of cookware in our cabinets?
I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Muffin Tin Chef, and to be honest, I put it aside for a while during the last busy weeks of my college semester. When I moved back home and was finally able to read the book, I was kind of surprised at how much I liked it.
It really is clever how many dishes Matt Kadey was able to downsize into the size of a muffin tin. I think I liked the book so much because:
- Easy portion control.
- Quick cooking time.
- All from scratch.
- Small batches.
- Variety of desserts, dinners, lunches, breakfasts, appetizers, and snacks.
- Easy to follow instructions.
- Simple to make a 3-course meal quickly.
- Well.. anything muffin tin sized is just cute.
So, if you don’t have this book, I suggest you buy it… even if it’s just solely to get the recipe for these chocolate lava cakes. These are like flour-less cake, except for a minor addition of flour. They taste so good though.. the gooey chocolate had me at hello.
