Description de l'ouvrage

25 novembre 1997
When we think of an inheritance, thoughts of money or some jewel-encrusted heirloom usually spring to mind. Well, Linda Fisher's inheritance did get her out of financial trouble, but it was nothing more than one of her mother's recipes and the values with which she was raised.

Suddenly finding herself divorced and struggling to support her son and make ends meet, Linda, rather than ask for public assistance, vowed to take care of her own. She dug up her mother's pancake recipe and modified it into a muffin batter. Then she loaded up her red Radio Flyer wagon and hit the pavements of Westminster, Maryland, selling mouthwateringly delicious muffins -- blueberry, peach cobbler, black bottom, burnt sugar, apple dumpling, to name just a few -- and soon became a local favorite, known around town as "the Muffin Lady."

Just when business started booming, however, the Carroll County Health Department told her to pack up her wagon because she didn't have a "department-approved commercial kitchen." Well, Linda wasn't going to take that lying down! She fought back, and the whole community came out to support her. Finally the Westminster Volunteer Fire Department offered her the use of their state-approved kitchen, where she still bakes muffins today.

In The Muffin Lady,  Linda shares the legacy of riches that was handed down by her mother. These gifts are useful both inside and outside the kitchen -- recipes whose ingredients include sugar, flour, perseverance and pride.

Biographie de l'auteur

Meet Linda Fisher, the Muffin Lady of Westminster, Maryland. She's a single mother whose delicious recipes for muffins -- and for a life lived with pride, dignity and values -- make The Muffin Ladyÿ so much more than just a cookbook.

Linda has been up and down and up again, but her mother's teachings (as well as her simple pancake recipe, which Linda adapted into the secret behind her mouthwatering muffins), provided her with everything she needed.

Replete with fabulous recipes as well as anecdotes, reminiscences and the wit and wisdom of Linda's inimitable personality, The Muffin Lady is a book for all of us who have ever licked a batter-covered spoon, waited impatiently for the oven timer to ring or carried with us throughout our lives the lessons and wisdom of our mothers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best muffins, ever 23 octobre 2001
Par J. Tinklenberg - Publié sur
I have made many of the muffins out this book and you can believe me that they come out of the oven and poeple fall on them and devour them. I have made muffins before that have been pale, small and tasteless, but once I started making Linda Fisher's muffins, I have had wonderful results. My favorites are the orange-cranberry muffins and the chocolate chip muffins, although much can be said for the banana-nut ones too. I like it that once you know the basic recipe, setting up the muffins is very easy. You could make a basic mix from the dry ingredients and just add the spices, fats, eggs, and other additions to make the ones you like. BUY THIS BOOK!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful book! 3 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
This book is as informative as it is entertaining. Intermingled with the fabulous recipes are antecdotes about the author's life and stories of how each recipe came to be. I have used nearly all the recipes and love them! The finished products are moist, tender and absolutely delicious. (One note: use the author's suggestion of using squares of wax paper to line muffin tins instead of paper liners - something I'd never tried before but the results are great!) Another bonus - the recipes are all easy to follow. Favorites include: Strawberries & Cream Muffins, Peach Cobbler Muffins, Streusel-Filled Coffee Cake, Apple Bars, Marble-Walnut Brownies and Blueberry Upside-Down Squares. Happy baking!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Chocolate chip muffins and my dentist 28 mars 2005
Par L. Hardwick - Publié sur
Though I have a good collection of cookbooks, this is one that I use on a regular basis. I have searched for years for great baking recipes, and have found them in this book. I enjoy the background she gives on why she uses certain ingredients, what worked and what didn't. The hint about using wax paper for liners was the best tip! The blueberry and banana nut muffin recipes are superb and most requested in my house. Our family dentist requested Chocolate Chip muffins, and I was able to make him some that he raves about. I dare not go now without taking the office some. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves to bake!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Tomato Soup Muffins?! Actually, they are really good... 14 décembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
I saw a TV show that featured a story on Linda Fisher and bought the book as a result. The muffins looked so good that I had to find out how to make them. This is a good cookbook with a great story and I've made 3 recipes from it (2 of which were successful). The Cherry Cookies are very easy and so melt-in-your-mouth delicious, they were gone the same day I made them. The Caramel-Nut Squares sound great on paper, but when I tasted them they seemed to be missing something (salt, maybe?). And because I had some tomato soup and raisins on hand, I tried the Tomato Soup Muffins out of curiosity. They turned out to be quite tasty and you can't really tell what's in them. All in all it's a good book, recommend for bakers and non-bakers alike.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Mega- Muffins Ever!!! 25 mai 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I have had this book for about 1 1/2 years. Every muffin recipe I have tried has been fabulous! My favorite are the Banana, Carrot and the Morning Glory. If you love to bake this is a great addition to any collection. It is great even if you don't like to bake. The recipes are easy to follow. My grandmother (who used to own a bakery) says these are some of the best muffins she's ever had! That is a definite compliment to Linda Fisher!
