One Minute Flaxseed Muffin

There is a lot of room for alterations with this muffin. So far, I have tried adding chocolate chips (kid approved) and fruit (Mike approved, although you may need to microwave a little longer if using frozen fruit). You can also change this from a sweet muffin to one with more substance by adding meats and cheeses instead of honey and cinnamon.

Easy and delicious way to get protein on the go. Even better, this recipe can fit the most restricted dietary needs. Vegan, gluten and diary free, there are many substitutions that can be made to fit your tastes. My initial attempt at this recipe was with honey and dried cherries and it was great! They cool nicely and travel well. I was able to get the kids to eat this as well by substituting chocolate chips for the fruit.

This fall our family was given a butternut squash. Unlike some vegetables, such as the eggplant I was given this summer, I have some experience with this squash and have previously prepared it by roasting it in the oven with a little butter.  Although I enjoy squash prepared this way, I wanted to try something […]

I enjoy cooking and experimenting with different foods with the caveat that recipes are not overly time intensive or too complicated.  Recipe books and cards handed down through families can be the source of quality recipes, but I find they often tend to use foods I’ve never heard of or consist of so many ingredients […]
