What kind of muffins are those?  No one will have to ask if you top your banana nut muffins with banana chips.  Garnishing food with one of the ingredients used in the recipe – especially one that is highlighted or provides the most flavor – is a great way to let everyone know what flavors they are in for.  This can apply to any type of food.  When serving something like a spinach and sun-dried tomato quiche, the spinach will be readily visible but the sun-dried tomatoes may not be.  Reserve one sun-dried tomato and place it in the middle of the filling right before baking.  Not only will this give your food a professional look, but it will also lets people know what’s inside.
