The house smells of apple muffins, and I remember what my daughter says at a time like this. Mom, this is so cozy. Especially cozy with Grandmother Rose’s vintage crystal, and Mother’s muffin recipe baking up. Things were a lot simpler in the 50’s … for our family anyway … Foods and recipes too. If you’re looking for a muffin with complex flavors and textures this is not the recipe. A simple taste with just a bit of cinnamon and apple tartness sums it up.
