Food Critic’s Review:

This week’s eat was a cheddar bacon muffin made by Laura Pisano.  It was a welcome treat for an early Sunday morning meeting.  When I picked up the muffin, it was still warm ensuring its freshness.  The first bite reminded me of a baked potato, but as I took another bite, my mouth was engulfed in a sugary, savory goodness.  Before our meeting was over, I made sure to take another muffin so I would have one for later.
