Triple Chocolate Muffins

Triple Chocolate Muffins

The past several days have been pretty rainy and dreary here.  Anytime its cool outside, there is nothing I love more than a great cup of coffee, and a fantastic muffin to go with it!  Muffins don't get any better than these Triple Chocolate Muffins! Dotted with semi-sweet and white chocolate chips on top and all throughout the muffin, these are a sweet treat first thing in the morning.  I personally love a muffin as a snack along with said cup of coffee. These muffins are really easy to make, and bake up pretty quickly.  Made with a plentiful amount of sour cream, these stay really moist and delicious.  Take these into a work meeting, or a get together with friends, and you'll be loved forever!  ;) I brought one of these muffins with me on the way to pick up my son Continue Reading...

Purple Ribbon Banana Bread

Purple Ribbon Banana Bread

Award winning Banana Bread recipe! The best (and only!) recipe for banana bread you'll ever need. Moist, flavorful and super delicious!   If you knew me when I was a kid back in rural  South Dakota, you knew that I was heavily involved in 4-H.  I was in 4-H from the ages of 8 to around 16 or 17.  I can't even begin to tell you how much 4-H taught me - everything from the basics of cooking and baking, to food safety, horticulture and gardening, sewing, stitching, food preservation and canning, photography, art, and even the basics of dairy cows! Summer is usually when my brother and I were the most active in 4-H, as this was the time to prepare all of your exhibits for county achievement days.  For several years, my mom's car would be packed full of stuff that we were Continue Reading...

Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Just after I had graduated college, I did something rather daring.  I moved halfway across the country for a job...and a boyfriend!  Right away I found a great apartment, right on the river in gorgeous, Boise, Idaho.  I loved living in my tiny one-bedroom apartment.  In college I always had roommates, and before college I had stinky brothers to deal with.  It was the very first time in my life where I was living all by myself. Just down the street from my apartment was this amazing bakery, called Pastry Perfections.  On Saturday mornings, I would walk over and treat myself to a cup of coffee and one of their amazing rolls, pastries or muffins.  One of my all time favorites was their glazed lemon poppy seed muffins.  They were completely drenched in an icy-lemon glaze, which locked Continue Reading...
