These were really yummy, and a little different. Even my pickiest eaters took a few bites (the frosting lured them in). My husband thought they were a nice change from blueberry muffins.
I made these today for my son's preschool class. They were a big hit with the kids and the teachers! The only change I made to the recipe was that I used 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour. They were delicious!
These are delicious. I added a few extra chocolate chips as I am a chocoholic. I was able to get 16 muffins from the recipe and baked them for 18 minutes to get them a little browner. They are very tasty and don't think I am going to use the glaze as I am giving some away. Try you'll like!!!
I made these muffins this morning and served them alongside berries topped with powdered sugar. The taste was so wonderful with a steaming cup of coffee. Would make these again and soon!

My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
