The reviews are in and there's a big thumbs down on $16 muffins. Shockingly wasteful, extravagant, indulgent, obscene, outrageous - and those are the nicest comments to be found in the blogosphere. A meal hasn't gotten these kind of notices since Roman Emperor Claudius panned his wife's poisoned mushrooms. News of the pricey breakfast treat has been burning up the Internet since Justice Department auditors revealed the excessive spending in a report released Tuesday. The pastries were served at a conference the agency hosted at the Capital Hilton in Washington.

For the possibly the first time in the history of Weeds, someone points out that Nancy dresses like a call girl. A pricey call girl, admittedly, but it still eludes me why none of her children have drawn attention to this in the past. Despite her $100-an-hour hooker outfit, Nancy is getting sent out on her first day to make sales calls without her mandatory three-week training. Silas' chill California attitude rubs up against the lab growers for Maritor, in particular one obsessive-compulsive nerd who insists on talking on the same wavelength as the plants.

Cracker Jack, popcorn, and candy for $32! And $16 muffins! And there are hungry people in this country, or so I thought. But these pigs in the U.S. Department of Justice aren't going hungry. Typical of everyday Democrat-run government. Nothing but the best whether it's junkets to Spain or lunches. When are the voters going to snap out of their acceptance of this free-loading Obama administration? F. Cordell, Rock Hall

One thing about the weather: We haven't figured out how to control it, so you never know what's going to be emanating from the heavens on any given holiday. Easter's no exception. We've turned blue (nearly) in Massachusetts in our new bonnets, light jackets and patent leather shoes. We've stripped down to shorts and tank tops to gather melted, ant-infested chocolate eggs in Florida. Thankfully, Easter in Maryland tends to offer weather most of us can handle. Cool enough to get the kids into Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes (even if they're not totally frou-frou dresses or cute little suits)

Muffins and moms brighten school day for Relay students On Oct. 14, Relay Elementary School hosted "Muffins with Mom. " Over 700 students and their mothers shared a muffin and juice at school. It was wonderful to see these families enjoying time together in the schoolhouse that morning! I thank my committee of teachers and support staff for their hard work in preparing for the event. I would also like to recognize manager Vicente Zeledon and owner Jeff Taylor of the Elkridge McDonald's for donating milk and juice.

Marie Stewart of Fayetteville, N.C., wrote that she wanted a bran-muffin recipe like the one she lost. "The beauty of the recipe was that the batter could be stored in the refrigerator for a good while and used in small quantities. To some batches I might add pineapple, apples, bananas or whatever struck my fancy. Any help would be greatly appreciated," she wrote. Tester Laura Reiley chose a recipe from Teresa Mrozowski of Johnstown, Pa., who noted that this "batter will keep about five weeks in the refrigerator."

As we dip our toes gingerly into the fresh waters of 2010, we have to admit it's a refreshing change. The new year even has a snappy nickname, twenty-ten, that adds to its coolness. All of the bad memories of the dismal clunker that was 2009 have receded, and what we have before us is a big, blue, inviting new expanse of time to play in, float on and swim around. At least, that's how I see it. So I don't think the new year should be welcomed with a lot of strict guidelines or self-imposed regulations about our diets, level of physical activity or commitments to future accomplishments.

Muffins may be the perfect gift for that hard-to-please person on your list. Sweet or savory, muffins freeze very well. Wrap them in foil and keep them in the freezer for up three months. Advise the recipient to keep the muffins frozen and be sure to tell them the last day the muffins can be enjoyed. Once thawed, the muffins will keep in the refrigerator for about five days.Frozen muffins can be reheated by wrapping them loosely in foil. Heat frozen muffins for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Item: Eggo Toaster Muffins What you get: 6 slices Cost: About $2.25 Nutritional content: Cinnamon - 130 calories, 4.5 grams fat, 1 gram saturated fat, 270 milligrams sodium; Blueberry - 120 calories, 4 grams fat, 0.5 gram saturated fat, 250 milligrams sodium Preparation time: One or two cycles at lowest toaster setting Review: Who would've thought this muffin-French toast hybrid would taste so good? My daughter loved these cut in fork-size pieces and topped with syrup. I liked grabbing one out of the toaster and eating it plain, one-handed, while I tended to the baby, got my oldest ready for school or performed one of those countless other morning "Mom" tasks that usually leave me no time for breakfast.

As part of a two-person household, you may be hesitant to do any baking. Those 5-pound bags of flour are daunting, and if you use sugar by the teaspoon, not the cup, buying it in bulk can be overwhelming. You can bake for two, but you may want to scale down your purchases. The standard advice is to buy larger sizes because you're paying less per cup. However, smaller packages take up less room in your cupboard and have a faster turnover. Buy flour in 2-pound bags. If you bake infrequently, store the bag in the refrigerator (this is especially important for whole-wheat flour, which can turn rancid)

CHRISTIAN 'HITSCH' ALBIN, 61 Four Seasons executive chef Christian "Hitsch" Albin, who fed the world's luminaries for decades as executive chef of The Four Seasons - a restaurant that invented the "power lunch" - has died. He was 61. Albin died at New York University Medical Center on Saturday, five days after being diagnosed with cancer, the restaurant's owners said in a statement. The Swiss-born chef's hearty laughter filled the ritzy Manhattan restaurant's kitchen for 36 years, serving guests who included Jacqueline Onassis, Elton John, President Bill Clinton, Princess Diana and Martha Stewart.
