Light as a Feather Muffins

I am going to post the recipes that my Home Economics teacher gave us back in 1963. They are good beginner recipes. She had us write each one on one page of a stenographer's notebook because you could then stand the notebook up when you were making it!! I found this technique to be extremely useful but it does not work for recipes that are not in a notebook. So, instead, I tape my loose recipes to the cabinet door in front of where I am working. It really keeps me straight when I'm cooking and I can glance up at the recipe without having to touch it or remember where I placed it!!
