We love muffins around here. My children would live off of my homemade bread and muffins if I let them. And these muffins are one of our favorite! They have definitely been a staple around here lately. Sometimes I double the recipe to make extra for the freezer....except somehow they never make it there.
Yay for a tasty green smoothie! Have you jumped on the smoothie train yet? If not, you should! They're super easy to throw together, delicious tasting, and packed full of good-for-you vitamins and minerals!
