Savory Muffins with Queso Fresco

Queso Fresco Muffins 2

Hello Friends, I hope everyone is doing well! 🙂 Spring is my favorite time of the year, I feel inspired to paint, bake and do all sorts of creative projects around the house. I made these savory muffins last Sunday for breakfast and they were a hit with my family. They are easy to make and you can have them on the table in less than an hour. They go well with butter, pate, cream cheese, jam or even just plain they taste wonderful. I imagine adding some bacon bits into batter would work great. Instead of Queso Fresco you can also use Feta cheese or any crumbly cheese. I absolutely loved the taste and the texture and will be making them again soon.

    1. Thank you! 🙂
      When I do my posts I always think of people who are just learning how to cook/bake and from experience I know seeing those pictures helps a lot. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  1. Beautiful muffins, Sibella, they look perfect! I love queso fresco, I once made it myself. It’s very easy but requires a lot of raw goat’s milk. I can just imagine how these taste!

    1. Hi Staci,
      I apologize for the 9 month delayed response hahah. I just don’t find time to maintain this blog, but there’s such great interest and so many comments that I missed responding to, so I will try to post one recipe a month to keep this blog going… Hope all is well and I’ll catch up with you on artsandrhymes… 😀

        1. Hello Darryl! It’s been too long!!! 😁 All is well here but extremely busy. I totally neglected this blog… Not only did I not post anything for a year but somehow I didn’t get notification of the yearly renewal, so it went offline for a while and I didn’t have a clue about it.

          I’m still active on WordPress on my other arts and poetry blog (, but I want to maintain this blog too, so I will try to post one recipe a month to keep it going. It’s going to be a challenge, but I’m going to try my best.

          I hope all is well with you and your family. I’m glad to hear from you and thanks so much for writing! I thought everyone forgot about me in baking/cooking world of WordPress… 🙂 Please feel free to visit my other blog, so we can keep in touch.
