Apple Muffin Recipe

Today I made Apple Muffins for the kids.  It had been a while since I made them and they were a *huge* hit with the kids.  I thought I would share that recipe with you. Then down below I shared links to my famous Peanut Butter Recipe, Pumpkin Muffins, Donut Muffins, Homemade Nutrigrain Bars, and others.  🙂

  • Another recipe that gets a lot of hits is the Homemade Brownie Recipe my sister passed along to me. These are super simple to make; my kids love making these.Brownies-from-Scratch-RecipeI have a fudge brownie cookie that I might like even better than the brownies! Since they involve melting unsweetened chocolate these are cookies that my kids haven’t really made yet (since you have to be careful to melt the unsweetened chocolate at a very low heat or in a double-boiler). We often have these at Christmas time.
