Comment:  My mother-in-law was not a Christian, but she loved all of our church friends.  Three weeks before she died, she asked our good friends, David and Linda Risener, to go to a book store and buy a book for me.  The book is "The Muffin Lady" and my mother-in-law heard about the book on a radio talk show.  She couldn’t get out and shop by herself, but she wanted me to have that book.  This is the first recipe we tried out and it will always bring back memories to me of my mother-in-law.
