“These are about the best muffins I have ever tasted. They got their peculiar name when one evening I was down with a migraine and my neighbor baked and brought them over for the family to enjoy. When I recovered in the wee hours of the morning after not eating for close to 48 hours, seeing these on the kitchen counter I ate one...well all I can tell you was that they were pure heaven. After eating these delightful morsels I asked MJ for the recipe, but she continued to forget to give it to me until one morning many months later she finally e-mailed it to me and on that very day I had another migraine. Go figure, they're a nice cure anyway!”
