MUFFINS & MAYHEM Recipes for a happy (if disorderly) life {giveaway}

What is better than the combination of humour, humility, and home-made goodness?

Muffins & Mayhem by Suzanne Beecher delivers all three. Suzanne Beecher is the well-known daily columnist who writes at DearReader.com.

Muffins & Mayhem are the stories of Suzanne's life, accompanied with favourite recipes. The inspiration for this book came from a reader who was diagnosed with terminal cancer, the reader was wondering how to leave a legacy for her family. Suzanne suggested a recipe box filled with memories and family stories.

Helping that reader lead to Suzanne sharing her own stories and recipes in Muffins & Mayhem Recipes for a Happy (if disorderly) Life.

I have been reading this book each night before going to sleep and have been loving the humour.

Stories like sewer rats coming up into the house through the toilet, and an all you can drink party for pesky snails, will have you chuckling as you read. And, then throughout the book Suzanne has included her favourite recipes. I am planning on trying Suzanne's most famous recipe - Skunk Beans.

How many times have you said that you wished you had written down details of a time or event before it was too late. Or, you wished you had your Great-Aunt's recipe of her famous chocolate cake. If you are anything like me, hind sight is 20/20 and I am always wishing I had done something before I wasn't able to. Visit Muffins and Mayhem where you can tell a story, share a recipe and create your own cookbook of memories.

Muffins & Mayhem is now on sale...the perfect light-hearted summertime read.

I found a recipe from the Foothill House B & B in Calistoga, CA and they are called Sweet Dreams cookies. Way too good.

Please don't enter me in the giveaway (I have a copy!), but please do feel free to link this post up with my Weekend Cooking post this coming Saturday. Not only is it a perfect fit, but I'd love more people to learn about this book.

Now I *really* want to get to my copy. Nice review.

When I think of "memories" and "recipe" together, I think of my grandmother's pound cake. It's what I look forward to each and every time I go to her house! Just hoping she's made some & it's waiting on me in the cake plate! :)
