Ham and Cheese Mini Muffins

4 | October 1, 2014

It’s a battle we know all to well as parents, what to put in the kid’s lunchbox for school. Peanut butter and jelly gets old fast and there’s only so many times you can pull off the cheese and crackers bit. So, I try to be as inventive as I can and that usually means making large batches of pasta salad, freezable bean burritos, and mini-muffins on the weekends. Whenever I stash a couple of these Ham and Cheese Muffins in the resident 6-year-old’s lunchbox, I hear how she had to fend off classmate’s offers to trade —they’re that good. You


Pear and Candied Ginger Muffins

  Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin — that and turkey is all I’ve been cooking lately! Sad thing is I haven’t been able to share any of the deliciousness with you because it’s all for clients. Of course it’s fall and it’s normally the time when the pumpkin invasion starts and we all run around like zombies looking for our 18th pumpkin latte of the day. That’s why I was overjoyed when I asked you lovely people on Facebook if you wanted a pumpkin or pear recipe next and you responded “Viva la Pear!” The pear is like Fall’s poor neglected stepchild —

healthy raisin sweet potato snack muffins

What?! Another raisin post?! I’m sure that’s what you are saying to yourself but don’t you worry it’s worth it. My husband is a lucky man.

For those of you who don’t know, my crazy, insane, and absolutely off his rocker husband of mine is an ultra marathon trail runner. He is so insane in fact that he was excepted into the highly regarded Western States 100 mile trail race


A story as old as time, when you have over ripened bananas that are starting to draw fruit flies and you are about to show your house to a potential buyer you make banana muffins or in our case banana nut muffins with Greek yogurt that are sinfully moist. I make this muffin recipe with practically any fresh fruit. It is also perfect to make ahead and use the batter as needed (batter will keep for 5 days in the refrigerator) for fresh delicious muffins every morning. Another story that is as old as time is Murphy’s Law. When you

blender biscuits

I can’t even describe how good these biscuits are! My best attempt would be to compare them to a creamy and puffy biscuit. Although they are not technically a biscuit. They are like eating buttery, slightly salty, creamy airy puffs of…I don’t even know. They are that good. The fact that it takes a total of 3-5 minutes to create in a blender and 15 minutes in the oven makes these the quickest dinner rolls/biscuits ever. Every time I make them there is never any left and leaves people begging for the recipe. It all started when I was attempting


As I told you last Monday my house is exploding with peaches. Not a bad problem to have mind you. Being a toddler, Mia loves muffins and when you put a house full of peaches and a child who is sick of eating eggs every morning together you have a perfect match. Of course, I’ve thrown in some butternut squash to the mix and cut down the sugar to make these perfect for the little munchkins. Moist and summer sweet, these peach and butternut squash muffins will be gone in no time. By the way, these are made with 3/4
