Blueberry Muffins

Confession: I’ve blogged about these muffins already. No use in hiding it since you might go back and see the double repeat.Yes, it’s a forbidden act under the food-blogging rules.But I re-made them, took much better photos, and just had to share them with you.

Zucchini Muffins

Hey, I had a few pounds of frozen zucchini. I had all of this zucchini that I received from a friends garden in the summer. We ended up freezing a great deal of it. My step son needed to bring in a snack for school, my wife and I decided this would be a great time to use up our Zucchini. I know what you are thinking. Frozen Zucchini is a bad idea. No it was a great idea. The flavor was still there, and everything worked out great. This recipe will give you around 30 muffins depending on the size  of your muffin tin....more

Little Bits Apricot Muffins

I love to cook and bake and make my husband happy so any food that disappears so quickly (including out of the freezer) is a definite keeper. I aim to please.A little trick I use with some dried fruits is that I pulse them in a food processor, 3-5 times.  It chops them up nicely to give you the flavor without getting a big chunk.  Of course, if you want to make Chunky Apricot Muffins – then chop them by hand.  I am sure they would be great too....more

You have to be living under a rock to think that muffins are the good-for-you breakfast food that we so desperately want them to be. They may be packed with fruits and nuts but there are also copious amount of butter and sugar. Diet food they are not. Exactly how did they earn the Healthy Breakfast Badge? A good PR?...more
