About the cook: I have always enjoyed cooking and baking. Now that I am retired ,I have the time to be creative and experiment with new ingredients. My husband loves muffins so I bake them often. He said these muffins satisfy every craving.They provide crunch from the almonds and pomagranite seeds, sweetness from the berries, and a tartness from the yogurt and buttermilk. Their appearance appeals to the desire for a decadent treat.
