Cran-Oat Bran Muffins

by Chrissy

Sometimes a hearty breakfast on-the-go is hard to find. Well, look no more. This energy-packed breakfast muffin has it all!

The hint of orange zest pairs well with the dried cranberries and cinnamon. This flavor trio brings back the nostalgia of the holidays. If you didn’t mind one bit, a healthy handful of chocolate chips would take these to another level!

When most kids would wait for the calendar to signal … Read more...

Here, have a piece of this steamy, fluffy cornbread.

Hmm… this might not work. I can’t get it through the computer screen.

Oh, shucks. It just looks like you will have to whip up a batch of this irresistible cornbread, yourself!

Honestly, when was the last time that you made or ate homemade cornbread? I know for me it’s been at least a year. My mom always made some to go right alongside Momma’s Kickin’ Chili. … Read more...
