Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bran Muffins

Muffins, to me, fall in this strange little sub-category of foods. Truthfully, they are not healthy… but you can put healthy stuff in them so it kind of makes you feel like they are.

Snowy Morning Pancakes

I’m not sure what it is about snow days that brings on the overwhelming urge to cook and bake, but of the friends I saw on Facebook that Friday, I think it’s not an uncommon practice. I’m sure it’s partly due to the fact that with falling snow all around you, there’s no where to …read more →
