Once again I have to say TGIF......

Thankfully we just had a temperature … [Read more...]

Cherry Vanilla Muffins


After gorging myself on cherries every night for the past few days, I finally decided to bake something while I still had a few on hand.   I didn't want to make anything too decadent or sweet today so I my turned to muffins, or as I like to think of them "almost cupcakes". I have a good go to recipe for muffins,  which has seen a quite a few … [Read more...]
