Jam Swirrled Muffins

main

Alright, back to baking! There is one heck of an explanation to the delay, but I’ll post that to the life section later. For now, on to the muffins! I finally started dipping my toes into the whole canning experience this summer. I am a fan. A fan who didn’t realize just how long it can take to do a ...

Apple Pie Inspired Muffins

I find breakfast to be the hardest meal of the day to figure out. It can be tough to switch things up enough that the kids don’t get board, without just filling a bowl with sugary cereal (though I do that quite frequently as a snack before breakfast, so don’t think I’m preaching here).
