Corn and Zucchini Muffins {vegan, gf}

It was the last day of preschool for the term, and I asked my son what he would like to take for their break up party. He replied, “Corn muffins and popcorn”. Preschool has been a learning curve for both of us; him to warm up to a new space where Mummy is not present…

Best Ever Muffin Master Mix {nut-free}

Welcome back! Big changes have been occurring over here! My little one, my constant companion, the one who makes my heart sing and drives me batty all at the same time, has started at preschool. Yes, preschool. Can you imagine? We’re still in the transition stage, that is, I am. I’m still grieving, but he’s…

Paleo Muffin Master Mix

I never hated Christmas before now. Don’t get me wrong; I love celebrating Christmas, but the rush and bustle of pre-Christmas activities caught me in its grip like never before this year, and I’m exhausted. Perhaps it was because the gifts weren’t sorted until two days prior, perhaps because I was baking right up to…

Raspberry Almond Muffins with Cacao Nibs and Citrus {gf/df}

I read an article the other day that said that successful people don’t do chores all weekend. I like that! Rather, they socialise and get exercise; in other words, unwind. Recharging is good for the mind, body and soul, and is the real rest that God meant when He instituted the Sabbath as a creation…

Pear, chocolate and ginger muffins with crunchy nut topping {gluten-free + dairy-free}

Pear and ginger; it’s hardly an original idea, but it’s certainly a good one, as the classic combination features over and over again in cookbooks, magazines and on baking websites. This is my first foray, though I’ve had the idea on my mind for some time now. It was probably autumn last year when I…
