Nothing says spring like fresh berries! These Lemon Raspberry Muffins have lots of ripe, fresh raspberries and a splash of lemon in each bite! I reached a new milestone in parenthood.  My son called me mean.  Frankly, I assumed that someone would have called me that sooner.  I’m not necessarily mean, but I am an enforcer of rules.  Rules and kids don’t always mix.  I should say, by enforcing rules, I mean I yell a lot.  It’s not my fault.  I … Continue reading →

Mint Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls

Mint Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls filled with mint chocolate chips, make an extra special holiday breakfast treat!   I always thought I was a smart person.  I’m not in Mensa or anything, but I’m not an air head either.  Now that I have a 4th grader bringing home 4th grade math, I suddenly feel either math has really changed or I have become stupid.  That, or I lost a lot of brain cells during childbirth.  The latter is a distinct possibility that has … Continue reading →
