Don't you just love those days where you have a ton of things you want to accomplish and then...something happens!! That was my day today. Last night before I went to bed, I started the upgrade on my IPhone. Yep, you guessed it. When I picked up my IPhone this morning everything was gone! After a fairly major meltdown, we called Apple. While on the phone with Apple, my IPhone began restoring. As it turns out, it had timed out while updating and didn't finish the process. A couple of stressful hours later, I was able to start my baking.
Today's SMS recipe is actually Pear, Blue Cheese and Walnut Muffins. You can find the recipe over at Andrea's Nummy Kitchen. One of the other versions for these savory muffins is Carmelized Onion, Sage and Cheddar. I must have passed on these when the SMS group made these a year or so ago. As it so happens, I planted a sage plant this year and have been searching for recipes using the beautiful sage.
Quite a few of the bakers commented these muffins were dry and suggested substituting sour cream for the cream and milk, to increase their moistness. As I combined the wet and dry ingredients, my batter was so dry I had trouble getting it to combine. I quickly grabbed some cream and added about 1/4 cup. I think next time I make these, I might just add some sour cream to the milk and cream. Concerned these weren't going to be any good, I tried one pretty much right out of the oven. These are delicious, I love the hint of sage along with the onions. Savory muffins are such a nice change!
Thanks Andrea for hosting this week. You can find all of the other SMS baker's muffin creations here!
