Your thoughts…

  1. I love muffins – I like to make them to go with soups and stew! Red pepper and feta, I might have to make a soup just to go with the muffins!

  2. I love muffins, I never traid with fetta!! Gloria

  3. Mmmm, these sound heavenly and remind me of my peppadew and parmesan muffins that I make regularly. I think I’ll give these a try for a little variety :)
