Muffin Tin Chef came to be when author Matt Kadey was working on a magazine assignment that required him to generate a range of recipes using muffin tins. The only stipulation? No muffins! His research led him to develop 101 recipes to take the at-home chef from morning through dessert, and Kadey discovered that muffin tin meals are a fun and easy way for kids to eat. "Preparing muffin-size items takes advantage of a child's preference for easy-to-grab, hand-to-mouth eating. Personal-size treats such as pizza or mac and cheese are sure to be a hit at the dinner table and in the lunchroom."
