"Little Mommy" book

Several readers mentioned wishing to find a copy of the "Little Mommy" book. Since it is currently in print, you can probably find it at most booksellers that carry Little Golden Books. Or, you can order it from Amazon. :-) And, my mom let me know that she has seen it at Hobby Lobby, too.

"It is while you are patiently toiling at the little tasks of life
that the meaning and shape of the great whole of life
dawn on you."

2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, divided
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

In a large bowl, combine first four ingredients. Combine milk, oil and 1 egg; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups half full. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining egg. Add cheddar cheese and seasoned salt; mix well. Stir in bacon. Spoon 2 tablespoons in the center of each muffin. Bake at 425° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Serve warm and enjoy!
