Muffins & Mayhem is a great summer read written by Suzanne Beecher. If you've never heard of Suzanne then you're missing out. She's done everything from own a restaurant, start a program to feed the homeless, to writing for DearReader.com.
What inspired Suzanne to write this book was actually a reader who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and was wondering how to leave a legacy to her kids. Suzanne suggested a recipe box filled with memories and family stories. In turn, the readers question actually sparked her to share her own stories and recipes.
This book is witty and useful. The recipes are great and hearing the stories of Suzanne's life is really interesting. It's a great summer time read and if you haven't seen this book, go out and get it. The great recipes make it more than worth it.
