From The Press Release

MUFFINS & MAYHEM is refreshingly humorous and honest, and a perfect summer read that celebrates food, friends, and family.
Suzanne Beecher has owned a restaurant, founded and published a business magazine, established a non-profit program to feed the homeless, and home-schooled her youngest son.

My Personal Take On The Ingredients for Happiness
This is a wonderful book that I felt fit my blog perfectly. I love the idea of sharing happiness with others and Suzanne Beecher did a fantastic job on this book! I love the cover that says “Muffins & Mayhem Recipes for a Happy (if disorderly) Life” for some reason that totally caught my eyes immediately upon opening this book from the mail package. This is a great book to sit down outside after a long day raising the kids and working. I like to sit outside and open this book with a cold drink and relax while I place my mind completely in this book. I am not completely to the end yet, but have read three quarters of this book and highly recommend it all to you based on my opinion of it being inspirational and intriguing.
