Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread/Muffins (Whole Wheat)

People like to talk about seasonal food, but with modern transportation and grocery stores, it’s sometimes easy to forget that most of us do not live in an area where a wide variety of produce grows year-round.  And yet even though you can pretty much always get things like lettuce, carrots, bananas, and apples, inRead MoreRead More

Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin Muffins

A few weeks ago I ended up with some free time with the munchkin while the peanut was napping.  My freezer stock on muffins was getting low and we were having company that weekend, so I thought a baking project might be fun.  When I asked her what kind of muffins we should make, sheRead More

Chocolate Muffins

Chocolate Muffins

If you’ve been following my posts about the baby naming we hosted for our little peanut, you’ll know I found a new chocolate muffin recipe to try out on my guests.   These muffins really could pass for dessert, but I figured for a special event, having some decadent choices to go with all ofRead More

Quinoa Muffins

Quinoa Muffins

Yes, another muffin recipe.  I fully admit that I have a crazy obsession with muffins, but I just love that it is so easy to make a snack suitable for kids and grown-ups with wholesome ingredients that keeps beautifully in the freezer.  Really, what could be better? I’ve been wanting to try these for aRead More

Oatmeal Muffins

Oatmeal Muffins

Oats are a food I am always trying to get more of into my diet.  I tried having oatmeal for breakfast every day, but I can’t quite get into it – every once in a while I like it, but I always get sucked back in by my GoLean Crunch addiction!  Oatmeal cookies are great, butRead More

Cornbread (Muffins)

—This post is part of my Canadian Thanksgiving series— I’ve already told you about the Classic Lasagna I made to serve upon arrival for our Thanksgiving weekend guests, but I thought one more home-cooked meal (in addition to the big Thanksgiving feast!) was warranted that weekend.  Lunch the day after our big meal seemed likeRead More

Carrot Coconut Muffins

Carrot Coconut Muffins

Ok, I’ll admit it right up front, this is the third time I’m posting a variation of this recipe – first as carrot cupcakes, and the second time as carrot zucchini muffins.  But I promise, these muffins keeps getting healthier AND better, so even if you’re sick of hearing about them, I want to remember what IRead More

Coconut Muffins – Update

Hi everyone!  A couple of weeks ago I told you about the Coconut Muffin recipe I found on Sweet + Natural.  Well, I’m happy to report that they have become one of the munchkin’s favorites, and mine, too!  I really want to make them part of my regular rotation, but was still a little concerned becauseRead More

Coconut Muffins

Coconut Muffins

This weekend, hubby’s sister and her husband are coming to NYC for an anniversary weekend getaway.  They’ll be staying with us Friday night, and then moving to a hotel for the next 2 nights (not sure why they don’t consider staying on a hard pull-out couch in a room with no door and getting wokenRead More

Blueberry Bran Muffins

Blueberry Bran Muffins

Way back in December, I told you about a yummy Bran Muffin recipe I found.  And while these were really tasty, they were a wee bit on the heavy side.  Ok, so they were a lot heavy.  I think the combination of bran and stone ground wheat flour made them really dense, so ever sinceRead More
