blueberry muffin

Today’s recipe is from an ad in Food & Wine, where Top Chef contestant Jennifer Carroll shares her recipe for blueberry muffins made with Pure Protein Powder. I was pretty interested in trying this because in the past, adding protein powder to baked goods has had mixed results. I have one or two recipes where […]

Ginger Mini Muffins

Breakfasts have been a little boring around here, so this week I tried to spice things up with some some mini ginger muffins. Using a recipe I typically use for regular gingerbread, I baked it my Baker’s Secret Nonstick 24-Cup Mini Muffin Pan. The results were moist muffins with beautifully rounded tops. As for flavor, […]

gluten free chocolate muffins

This weekend I bought a box of coconut flour.  I hadn’t a clue as to how I’d use it, but I liked the idea of a more healthful flour infused with the lovely scent of coconut.   Whole Foods had two brands, Bob’s Red Mill and Coconut Secret.  I went with the Coconut Secret because a) […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms! My gift to you is a photo of the inside of a Cream Cheese Danish Muffin and a tip. If you’re craving a Danish, buy a Danish. If a stiff, slightly dry muffin with a Danish filling and a center that looks like this sounds good, make the […]

Chocolate Muffins with Coconut Oil

I was in the mood for brownies, but Fuzz wanted chocolate muffins. This was our compromise — very chocolaty muffins, sweet enough for dessert, but not so sweet they’d be confused with cupcakes and rich enough not to need icing. In other words, they’re true muffins and not cupcakes. Just for fun, I used coconut […]

whole wheat blueberry muffins

Last week the people at Swerve sent over a lovely sample pack of their sweetener. I’m still testing it in different things and will give you the verdict soon, but along the way I discovered a really good muffin recipe and wanted to share it. I like this one because it calls for …

trapeze school

School resumed today, so I guess the holidays are officially over. No more spontaneous trips to the roller rink or mid-afternoon trapeze classes. That’s Fuzz (in case you thought it was me) whose latent talent for the trapeze arts came out yesterday at Trapeze Austin. She’s never been to the circus, but she says she’s […]
