A few months ago, JW sent me a link on ApartmentTherapy.com. They were giving away a new washer and dryer if you entered to win. So I did. As I was filling it out, it asked if you wanted to receive ApartmentTherapy.com updates. I thought about it for a minute... usually I don't give it one second, but the website has interesting decorating things, and since we are about to renovate or NYC apartment sized kitchen, I figured it couldn't hurt.
Then, I started to notice that occasionally they would send me information about a blog called The Kitchn. Sara, the blogger, sent me a recipe for Cheddar and Leek Muffins that caught my attention. Mainly because I already had cheddar and leeks in my possession. Random, I know.
I don't typically want to eat muffins for dinner, but the recipe just seemed like a perfect use for those ingredients, the leeks of which came from the CSA. The muffins also seemed pretty hearty, using whole wheat and corn flour as well as honey.
Here is the recipe with my comments, feel free to click the link for better photos and the original recipe:
They were exactly right for dinner, served up with some delightful cabbage soup. I had the other half of the cabbage from the night before (it's amazing that my camera makes both meals look IDENTICAL!).
The soup, seems very basic and unassuming. Well, it is, but somehow flavorful.
