In honour of Mother’s Day I would like to share a recipe for Chocolate Chip Muffins that were made by my Mom! She is an awesome baker and an awesome Mom too. Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom and all the Moms out there! I will be taking tomorrow off from writing a blog. I am hoping to have some coffee served to me even though we are at a hotel at my daughter’s dance competition! I will be back on Monday with my Smile of the Week. Enjoy the rest of your week-end everyone!
I recently headed over to my Mama’s house to make some muffins. This time we decided on a dessert muffin. The recipe calls for a chocolate drizzle and at first we did not add it but then decided, what the heck! The muffin recipe once again comes from the Muffin Mania cookbook by Cathy Prange and Joan Pauli. Every time I go to my Mama’s to bake muffins, Mama and I go through her china cabinet looking for a plate to put the muffins on for a photo. Each time my Mama pulls out different plates and tells me the history of them. Each plate seems to have a story. I am thinking a tour of Mama’s china cabinet could make for a fun blog so you can watch for that coming up one day soon! Anyway, we chose this really pretty pink plate for this day.
