Muffins are a great way to use up bits and pieces of fruit. Heck, even if you don’t have any fresh fruit at all you can add in nuts and dried fruit instead. Plus there’s not an easier breakfast than grabbing a muffin on your way out of the door. Make these on a Sunday […]

I think there’s something about the cooler, rainy weather, as well as the orange and red leaves that makes me crave the butterscotch-y flavor of blondies. There’s nothing wrong with brownies, but there’s so much more you can do with blondies. They are the blank check of the dessert world in my opinion. You can go with fruits, nuts, chocolate chips […]
