Cinnamon Buttermilk Muffins

I am making an exception for this one, originally found on pages 20 & 21 of the Williams-Sonoma "Muffins" Book (a fabulous book), as guests have repeatedly asked for it.

Breakfast Enchiladas

This is a favorite recipe at Sunrise Landing Bed and Breakfast.  Originally I found it on-line at MyRecipes.com. While I usually tinker with recipes and make them my own creation, this one has required very little tinkering. I do change the filling,  at times, in order to make it a vegetarian recipe, and there are any number of varieties one can create. One can also substitute evaporated whole milk for the half and half. The following is very close to the  recipe which can be found  on MyRecipes.com . 1 1/2 - 2 cups diced, cooked ham 1/2 cup chopped, green onion 8 ...
