25 Creative Dishes That Prove Muffin Pans Aren’t Just for Muffins
You can use your muffin tin for sweet muffins, savory muffins, cupcakes or even DIY coasters, but you don’t have to stop there! You can make tons of great single-serve foods in a muffin pan that aren’t really muffins at all. The humble muffin pan may be more versatile than you thought, and here are 25 recipes to prove it.
4. Miracle Noodle Nests: Miracle Noodles are calorie-free, gluten-free and soy-free. Are you starting to see why these are miraculous? Pile them into your muffin tin to make sweet little nests. (via Brit + Co)
14. Crustless Mini Quiches: Skipping the crust makes these super easy to make. Just like our almost-magical egg muffins, you can customize, make ahead and freeze these for a quick breakfast or appetizer. (via The Kitchn)
22. Sugar Cookie Bowls: Use cookie dough and the bottom of a muffin pan to create edible bowls for ice cream, gelato or whatever your heart desires. Or, use as super cute topping bowls for your next sundae bar. (via Wilton)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
