My mom is the Queen of Thoughtful Gifts. Most of the cute socks, comfy pajamas, and pretty kitchen gadgets I own are because of my mom’s holiday-related generosity. This morning, I opened pink and red heart-covered packages that revealed the following goodies:

Pretty measuring spoons!

This one says “love” — note the lovely barbell-induced callouses on my palm!

And adorable muffin papers with dino flags, perfect for dino-chow Meat & Spinach Muffins.

Inspired by my mom’s generosity, and because I love you, you can download a PDF of the Meat & Spinach Muffins recipe from Well Fed: Paleo Recipes For People Who Love to Eat. Happy Valentine’s Day to you!

  2. Melinda Nickas says:

    Yum! Thank you!

  3. Michelle says:

    Too funny, I just made these last night :) Had one for breakfast, with a little quac. I not a spinach lover, so this is a great way to get in some good nutrients!

  4. Amy says:

    Yay! These look great! I love that you included the “world tour” part for different flavors. I was just thinking, “I wonder how lamb would be instead” when I saw it :)

  5. Andrea says:

    Mom’s ROCK…mine gave me a set of those measuring spoons too! I love them and use them all the time!

  6. Melissa says:

    I had these for breakfast this morning! The measuring spoons are SO awesome!

  7. Renee says:

    I had these this morning, too. I made mine with lamb and every green veggie I had on hand, all finely chopped – leftover asparagus, arugula, broccoli, and spinach. I’m at a conference and left my hotel room satisfied and well fueled for the day. These are my favorite travel meal or grab and go snack. They come out a little different every time, but always wonderful. They have made my transition to post whole30 a piece of cake (muffin?)

  8. Melissa says:

    i’m going to have to make several different batches of these and freeze some for Dan and myself for the upcoming weeks. This is almost of hybrid of my mini quiches and meatloaf muffins, lol. More meatloaf I guess

  9. dana g says:

    Ok…like other’s have asked…WHERE did your Moms get these adorable measuring spoons!

  10. Mom says:

    Hello everyone!

    This blog is buzzing over Melissa’s measuring spoons. I purchased these on amazon. I selected this set called “Wine Glass & Grapes Measuring Spoons” by Ganz because, in addition to the grape motif, they also have the words “Bon Appetit”, “Enjoy”, “Cheers” and the word that best describes how I feel about my sweet daughter “Love.”

    Ganz makes several other really cute designs including cats, tea cups, angels, and sunflowers. There are even a few sets that have heart shaped spoons.

    Sorry, no Dinosaurs! :-(

    Amazon sells a Ganz measuring spoon display rack. Shhhhh! Don’t tell Mel. I didn’t buy the display rack for her, well not yet anyway.

    I took down my Valentine decorations this morning and put up my Shamrocks. Making spinach muffins with ground lamb inspired by your post and the color “green. Oh, my! Remember when I made icky-looking green scrambled eggs for you and TJ on St. Patrick’s Day???
    xxoo ~~Mom~~

  12. pamela says:

    Those are such wonderful gifts, and a big thanks to your mom for sharing where to get them. Hmm, I have a birthday next week. I just may have to treat myself to a set.

    I’ve also been meaning to try those meat and spinach muffins. No time like the present. Thanks again.

  13. Tonja Pizzo says:

    I have been munching on the meat muffins all week!!! I LOVE THEM!!!! Using lamb was perfect!

  14. Supers says:

    Meat and spinach muffins are one of my faves from Well Fed. It’s a recipe on repeat.

    Today I have jicama in the slow cooker for home style fries tomorrow.

    Thanks Melissa!

  15. Lily says:

    Just made these muffins with lamb, mint and cumin and they are delicious! Can’t wait to have some tomorrow as well.

  16. Mel says:

    Imm LOVING that so many of you are making the spinach muffins with lamb. I think that’s my favorite, too… I’m working on a new recipe with some other vegetables and seasoning options. Look for them soon!

  17. Wendy says:

    Meat muffins are a regular at my house, so convenient for cleaning out the fridge! Load up all the left over bits of meat and veggies, the more colorful the better. Love biting into an array of color, green spinach, red pepper, orange yam. Love your spiceology, you are an inspiration!

I asked for and received this book for Christmas and just started reading it now. It's one of those cookbooks that you read from cover to cover before cooking from it. The writing is killing me inside a little bit, it's so good. Just enough description to create vivid mental pictures and a snarky, delightful sense of humor. It's a world tour with personal accounts and recipes to recreate the travel experience in your own kitchen. You know that's one of my favorite things!.

Still thinking about...
The Night Circus

Mysterious, thrilling, engaging, romantic — it's a first-class ticket to another place and time.
