Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Blueberry Honey Cornbread Muffins

With my current medications, I find that I have to drastically reduce my salt intake to minimize the worst of the side effects. Even that, the side effects are barely manageable. Fortunately, I find that omitting salt in my baked goods (and simply relying on existing salt in the ingredients) doesn’t truly affect their taste […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Lemon Muffins

The main difficulty I had in the past when baking purely with just coconut flour was that the resulting baked goods would come out dense and wet in the center. Is it possible to obtain a tender, fluffy muffin with only coconut flour? Apparently, it is! Using a Keto Lemon Muffins recipe, I made some […]

Blackberry-Citrus Jumbo Muffins

While I definitely have to go without dairy for the rest of my life, excluding gluten from my diet is still not an entirely firm decision (although I have been doing my best to eat gluten-free). Of course, right before I was asked to omit gluten, I had just replenished my pantry with a 12 […]

Banana-Nut Muffins

It’s always a wonderful feeling when a simple recipe yields fantastic results. I recently purchased a used Southern Living cookbook titled “The Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook” for two bucks. :) I told Keith I couldn’t not buy the book. I mean it’s Southern Living’s ultimate cookbook…it says so in the title. Lol, that got a […]

Apple Cheddar Muffins

Alex has been sick twice now in two weeks and is in fact, still recovering at the moment. Today is day six of the second round and I think he’s finally reaching the point where he can’t stand being sick anymore. He told Keith and me tonight that he needs to get better. Believe me […]

Blueberry Muffins

Muffins are one of my favorite things to make. They are easy to put together, they are not finicky (mostly), and they bake up pretty and delicious in no time at all. So, that’s the first thing we made with our bountiful blueberries. Enjoy! {Lightly adapted from the Perfect Muffins recipe in the McCall’s Home-Baked […]

Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Feels like forever since I last posted something! “Has she fallen off the face of the earth?” some of you might wonder (I wonder about that often myself). However, the truth is nowhere near as dramatic. :) I’ve just been feeling sooooo… exhausted lately, and the weather is certainly not helping! I’m so sick of winter…..can’t […]

Chocolate Raspberry Muffins

I miss blogging, believe it or not :) despite its time-consuming process but I just can’t find the time or energy to do it lately. Between homeschooling and work (not to mention the still depressed and anxious “puppy” who’s continuing to keep us up at night), blogging has been put on the back burner for now. I still […]

Avocado Muffins

Our standard uses for avocados are as a topping for chili or tortilla soup or layered in sandwiches. Pretty boring, huh? Anyway, because of our limited usage, and because I buy our avocados at Costco (which normally means five large ones in a bag), sometimes we have more leftovers than I know what to do with and […]

Plum Sour Cream Muffins

I love muffins. They are quick and easy to whip up and make a great on-the-go breakfast or snack. This recipe comes from an all-time favorite book of mine – King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking. I have made a lot of baked goods from this book and they have consistently turned out moist, tender, […]
