Muffin weather

Maybe you’ve felt it, too. It’s time again for little warm baked treasures. It’s been snowing on the tips of the Wasatch Mountains. Seems a bit early for snow, but this is certainly fall weather and it calls for baking.

I needed a way to pack some easy non-sandwich nutrition in the kids’ lunches and a treat to bring to the 9am language class I’m taking, so I turned to my sister Kari’s cookbook about Muffins, which you can find on blurb.com. She also posted her recipes on her baking blog, The Virtual Goodie Plate.

Just right for after school snack and a great fit for the lunches. I highly recommend them warm. Maybe even with a little butter.

And for the sweetness, I made Gingerbread Muffins with IMG_1113Lemon Glaze. Again, perfect for a chilly day.

I hope you are enjoying this cozy seasonal transition as much as I am.

Happy baking!
