An easy recipe for Perfect Chocolate Chip Muffins from Keep it Sweet Desserts

I made these muffins a few weeks ago and actually froze a few to bring with us to the shore this past weekend.  My grandfather kept raving about the “best cupcake” he has ever had.  That cupcake was actually this muffin.  The basic recipe is so simple which makes the fact that he loved them even better.

In fact, the recipe came from Lauren’s e-cookbook, Everyday Ingredients Extraordinary Meals.  Her book is full of beautiful photos and delicious recipes.  Many of them are easy meals and simple desserts.  It is family-friendly and reflective of the personality you come to love from her blog.  Recipes like fail-proof pizza dough, birthday cupcakes, and and My Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll (ahem, DYING to try that), give it a level of comfort and hominess.  Other notable recipes include Lemon Cheesecake Crème Brule Bars and Chocolate Cream Pie.  There are family friendly meals as well, but you know me and my sweet tooth.  And good news for all of you!  Lauren is offering to give a copy of her e-book to one of you!  (See end of post for giveaway details).

    These muffins look exactly like the ones my mum used to make for me when I was little. I am flooded with nostalgia right now, I might have to make some!
