Whole Wheat Banana Blueberry Muffins

I was at the Farmer’s Market the other day pining over all of the beautiful produce, and admiring the increasing variety of other products sold there – lotions, soaps, plants, cheeses, etc. I came up to a stand of baked goods that looked good enough to make your mouth water, and I very nearly bought […]

Not that long ago, I had a conundrum.  I had some cupcakes leftover from an order.  They were vanilla cupcakes that tasted delicious but didn’t look so great because the cake was so moist the papers were coming off.  And plain vanilla cupcakes are something that are really easy for me to pass up…you know, […]
