Zucchini Muffins


My kids LOVE muffins and I’m even more excited to share that they both love Zucchini Muffins! Who knew that ZUCCHINI MUFFINS of all things could be accepted as part of a delicious dessert?

Sinful Strawberry Muffins

Strawberry Muffins

I remember when I was in High School, my best friend and I would go strawberry picking together every June. It was our way of de-stressing during exams. Truth be told, I don’t recall what we did with all of the strawberries. Perhaps my Mom used them to bake her famous Strawberry Bread with Strawberry Butter and her delicious Strawberry Freezer Jam. I have continued on this tradition with my children by taking them every year to our local strawberry patch to pick strawberries.

Pumpkin Muffins

To this day, I don’t love staring at the scary decorations. In my adulthood, I have embraced what I term the “fun part” of Halloween for ME and that is the pumpkins, black cats and creative costumes. Our neighbour across the street always brings over fun and delicious Halloween baking for the kids to enjoy. It has become part of our Halloween tradition. Do you have any Halloween traditions that you … Continue reading
