Yummy Apples and Oatmeal Breakfast

I’ll tell you right now.  I have NEVER liked oatmeal. In all my forty-something years of eating breakfast, oatmeal cooked from scratch or out of an instant packet was never on my yummy list.  I don’t like the texture of cooked rolled oats AT ALL.  I’ve tried several times to force them down for the sake […]

No Egg No Oil Carrot Muffins- STILL MOIST

My world of baking muffins and cupcakes has been shaken up a bit.  All my cooking life I’ve read eggs and oil are staple ingredients to baking muffin recipes.  Somewhere along the road, I learned oil could be substituted for applesauce, but the egg was still there holding the batter together.  Then, I’ve read of […]
