Paradise Muffins – How to Add Flavor to Any Meal

There is just something about cold rainy days that screams Paradise Muffins and Soup!  We can’t wait to put a big pot of it on the stove, then spend the rest of the day smelling that delicious aroma and anticipating the flavor. 

As far as I am concerned, you can only eat just so many crackers, and some days you just don’t have enough time to make a loaf of homemade bread.  In that case, I usually turn to one of my favorites, Paradise Muffins.
