Dessert recipes with spices and herbs
February 12, 2010

I love my precious muffin pan, that I use not only for muffins but also for recipes like the chickpeas flour chips or the potato rosti with dill.
It's starting to look old... but in good shape enough to create delicious muffins for my family's breakfast.
