It hit me as I was staying up late to make my son blueberry muffins to eat for breakfast tomorrow. Seth Godin would say Martha White is a liar - or I guess I'm a liar and Martha is an enabler.
All I add to these muffins are 1/2 cup milk. But food science is such these days that they could probably make the mix include the milk all ready, have them in a bakeable tin and I would never have to touch a spoon. But I add the milk and stir - so I am "cooking" for my family (with all of those warm and fuzzy thoughts going around in my head around the oven). I stayed up late to make these delicious muffins for my soon. I am a good mother. (My story, with a little help from Seth.)
