Lest anyone think I'm kidding about Linda and her use of nutmeg, here is a short sample of the conversation from making the coffee cake.
Linda: Do you think I ought to put in some nutmeg.
Me (laughing): Sure!
Linda: How much?
Linda dumps the rest of the container of nutmeg into the batter.
Linda: Never mind!
Linda swears there was only about a quarter of a teaspoon nutmeg left in that particular container. I'm not so sure....
