Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Lemon Blueberry Muffins “Mom, a muffin is sort of like a little cake, right?” this is what my 6 year old son asked as he took one of these sweet little muffins. Yes, they are very much like a little lemon cake with some blueberries in it and they are fabulous. Also, quite easy to make. Your breakfast table will thank you for it....more

Sweet Cornbread Muffins

Cornmeal is  a southern staple.  Growing up my family used cornmeal for savory corn bread, sweet corn bread (my favorite) and as a batter to fry fish.  Not one person in my family didn’t have a supply of cornmeal stashed in their pantry.  Although the corn bread muffin isn’t very fancy, it’s a really good muffin and serves as a perfect side dish for most southern meals or in this instance for breakfast served with a drizzle of honey or homemade preserves.  I hope you try this recipe and if you do, I’d love to hear how it turned out for you....more

Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins

  A few weeks ago I posted banana muffins on instagram when I was making them…while of course enjoying some wine on a beautiful sunny, Sunday afternoon. Today, I don’t feel like wine but I’m totally craving these muffins again; they were really good.   Continue R...more

Blueberry Orange Muffins

I'm so excited to share the second muffin recipe in this month's muffin madness series on Jem of the South! The stars of this muffin include fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries and freshly grated orange zest.  After battling through an usually cold winter here in the South, these muffins are a welcoming sign that Spring is on the way. You have to make these muffins soon and in Jem of the South fashion, go big or go home. Don't make 12 baby muffins, make 6 bakery style muffins. You'll thank me....more

Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love chocolate. That's the understatement of the year, actually. So, moving right along with that chocolate theme- I have my good 'ol standby muffin recipe for you today! I've tried other muffin recipes, but they just don't compare. It must be the chocolate, I don't know. I originally made up this recipe when I was in university and since then have adapted it, giving it a few tweaks along the way. I think at one point I had sour cream in the mix- which made the muffins wonderfully tender- but come on now, I don't have room for those extra calories anymore!...more

Pumpkin walnut muffins

Yesterday I decided to make a big batch of pumpkin muffins. I found this quick and easy recipe from Very Best Baking. I thought the addition of orange juice was so unique and you don't really taste it, I think it just enhances the flavor of the pumpkin. I added walnuts because I like to have a crunch to my muffins.Oh, that's Oliver on the plate by the way, making his debut. ...more

One Year Older - One Year Wiser

This week marks the one-year anniversary of House of Bedlam – hard to believe a whole year and 52 blog posts have gone by so fast. My goal when I started this little project was to get my kids to start eating better and enjoying real food. Looking back over all the new foods they have tasted I believe we made huge strides. Of course, we still have a long way to go but one thing is for sure, my kids have become a lot more fun to cook for. Okay, there are still days when someone screams at seeing a pea on his plate but at least it is not EVERY day anymore....more
