Tomato Basil and Goat Cheese Breakfast Muffins

Growing up I wasn’t a big fan of tomatoes.  I grumbled when my mom would make a casserole with those tiny red bits playing hide and seek.  I would pick them out carefully and set them off to the side, far enough away where they wouldn’t touch what was left of the dinner on my…

MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP BISCOTTI (GF, DF, Paleo)

I’m already in spring cleaning mode.  Just the other day I was reading one of my favorite food bloggers and came across this site.  Caroline, who is a minimalist dresser, creates her own capsule wardrobe each season.  Have you heard of this before?  I can’t believe I’m so late to the game!  To me, this was an…

GINGERBREAD CRANBERRY MUFFINS

After a breakfast like that I can almost say hallelujah! and call it day – almost. So when I run across dishes made with breakfast foods that…

Banana Bread Muffins

I recently read an article that had the nerve to announce that breakfast wasn’t the most important meal of the day. I disagree. Literally, I can’t function without having something satisfying before any work gets done.  Maybe it’s my obsession with food.  Or my obsession with breakfast.  Or both. I mean, who wouldn’t want to…
