two of a kind

My 8-year-old daughter has a habit of posing impossible questions right before bedtime: Why do we have to turn the clocks ahead? Is the tooth fairy real? And then, not too long ago, she blurted out this doozy: What’s the difference between a cupcake and a muffin? We had just finished making blueberry muffins that night for her school’s “healthy snack sale,” and in the interest of getting her to go to sleep, I said: “Well, a cupcake has frosting and a muffin doesn’t. G’night!” But I knew there was more to it than that. I mean, I’d just dumped a cup and a half of sugar into the batter. I appreciate that they were called muffins, because I couldn’t in good conscience show up at 8 a.m. with a tray…

Trisha, I really enjoy watching you cook with your sister. What is your favorite recipe from your mom’s shoebox to prepare and eat together? Vicky Hart Hopkinton, MA Recently Beth and I found a recipe for scuppernong pie (also known as muscadine pie), which is made with scuppernong grapes, and we baked it on my show. We loved thinking about why our mother kept the recipe. Once we tasted the pie, we knew: The flavor is so interesting! It tastes like grape jelly pie to me. Get the recipe at foodnetwork.com/trishaspie. —Trisha Yearwood Jeff, how can I add spice to my favorite sandwich recipes? Tyler Barker Seattle Try pickled peppers!

winging it

It appears our obsession with chicken wings is officially a problem: Americans eat so many, we’ve driven up wholesale prices by 20 percent in the past year! That means more expensive wings at the grocery store, and you can probably say goodbye to 10-cent Tuesdays at pubs and restaurants, too. According to the National Chicken Council, wing prices typically spike even more just before Super Bowl Sunday—but the good news is that other parts of the chicken cost the same as usual, so you can serve chicken tenders instead, or “boneless wings,” which are actually just pieces of breast meat!
