Wednesday Eats and Treats: Rachel's Amazing Muffins

My daughter, Rachel, makes the most amazing muffins. This might be because her husband's family previously operated a bakery in Broken Bow, Nebraska, where these muffins practically flew out of the display case. Rachel took the bakery recipe, tweaked it, and came up with some winning variations for breakfast and healthy snacks.
