A: Nancy Goodrich, aka Nancy G, admits she has a muffin fan base. "We started serving muffins for brunch, and they were so popular that we started serving them every day at lunch, " she said. The pecan flavor does taste like a cross between a muffin and pie -- sweet, but crumbly-tender. Stored in an air-tight container, they keep well for a few days, too.
