Banana Muffins

Banana MuffinMy goodness, I am going to have to start doubling my bread recipes for the week I think. This is the second time that our “homemade snack” has been gone the day after I made it. It is true that this recipe only makes 12 muffins, however I think that most muffins I do make have 12 in the recipe. Maybe my kids have just been on a muffin kick, maybe I have just been making really yummy snacks, who can know?

Parmesan Cheese Muffins

MuffinsI like a little bread to go with my meal, a sandwich, yes please, burgers, yum! We very often have either garlic bread or corn bread as a side dish. I decided to try these out to change it up a bit. They were pretty tasty! They were also very quick! Serve warm with butter and it is the perfect accompaniment to a nice bowl of hot soup.

Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry MuffinGloomy days are here. I am not complaining, not complaining at all. In fact this is my favorite kind of weather, drizzly or even rainy days are the best. For me the best day involves a home-baked treat, big cup of tea, fireplace and a good book. With the kids being done all their school for the year I have had plenty of time to indulge. More reading with my fire planned for today!
