Spicy Muffins with Feta and Vegetables

I am a big fan of cheese. Cheese is never enough or it is never too late to have some cheese. If I can ever add some cheese to any food, I do. I do it with a great pleasure. Whenever I have some spare time, I find myself on websites with lots of cheese photos. Well, here is a link to such a site where you can enjoy those awesome photos of mouth-watering sandwiches with Wisconsin cheese:

After a joyful visit to this website, I craved cheese and headed to the kitchen right away and I ended up with muffins with feta and vegetables. You should definitely give it a try! Please remember to smell it before the first bite!
