A repost of a recipe I did last year!
Now that it is starting to cool down here on the Gulf Coast, I am starting to thingk about baking again. I don’t know about you, but even with the air conditioning I don’t feel like baking too much. Between the heat and the humidity, it gets kind of oppressive. We are back in the 80’s so it time to make some goodies again.
Here are my apple pie muffins. These are favorites for Sunday breakfast.
In Illinois, my sister-in-law and I would go apple picking in August or September. We would come back with bushel backs of them. We would make everything from apple sauce to apple j…
About a year ago, I was in this muffin craze. I was trying all kinds of muffin recipes. Apple, banana, blueberry. I even came up with some recipes for muffins that were low fat and low sugar for some of my friends who have diabetes.
I love them all. They are fast and easy to make. You can use bananas and apples or anything that is past their best used by date. They are a winner for everyone!
This cranberry nut is one of my favorites!
Here is a new muffin recipe for you. I have another cranberry nut muffin recipe, but had wanted to find one that has less sugar. I found out that some of my friends have to watch that. I found t…

I am going over to a friends how for Sunday breakfast and I always bring something. The problem is that I was too lazy to go shopping yesterday. So what do you do? Especially if you want to have enough for six kids?
I go into my freezer where I always have some kind of frozen fruit. Today it was raspberries. So I made 2 dozen raspberry lemon muffins and we are good to go!
Enjoy your Sunday!
I started posting muffin recipes on a few weeks back on Saturdays, because I wanted to give people an easy & fast meal for Sunday breakfast/brunch. Family meals are really important. These days it is difficult enough to find time together. We have crazy schedules and a lot of demands on our time. Sunday might be the perfect day to correct that . And breakfast or brunch is great, because you can catch family before they get out!

I love anything with carrots! Carrot muffins are my favorite. The problem has been with carrot muffins, they tend to be heavy in fat. This recipe looks good in that regards. Less fat due to the yogurt. I love how it looks too. Dark and spicy and rich. I can’t wait to try this!
I found this recipe on the Pioneer Woman website. I made them last week for my meeting on Tuesday. They were super. The muffin is so moist and tender. The flavor was spicy, but not overbearing. Everyone loved it. It has a long list of ingredients, but don’t let that stop you from making these. They are super easy to put together. The results are well worth it!
It’s pumpkin time! Most people think pie or bread when you think pumpkin. I am looking for different ways to use the pumpkin. Broaden our experience. I posted a vinaigrette earlier. I am looking for other ways to use pumpkin puree!
These spiced muffins are a great breakfast or snack. They are very tender. Not dense like a lot of muffins. The pumpkin flavor is complemented by a sweet brown sugar topping. And they have perfect amount of sweetness. Not too sweet. That means Jim will eat them!

This week’s muffin is from my friend Mindy. It’s Blueberry Corn Muffin with Coconut. When I was a kid, we would always make muffins or corn bread from the Jiffy mix. Then seemed kind of blah. The muffins or corn bread would be heavy and kind of hard. Like a hockey puck! I was never big on corn bread.
I learned to love corn bread when I met my husband. Jim makes a corn bread that is so light and sweet, that you would think that it was dessert. We have some friends from India who call his corn bread “corn cakes”. Lol! Read the rest of this entry »
As I started on my muffin making journey, I went looking for old recipes that I grew up with. The ones loaded with sugar and oil. Gosh! They really tasted good when I was a kid. I started making them this time with an eye towards decreasing the fat. I have to watch my cholesterol you know. So all these recipes don’t have the fat content that we became used to.
I asked friends and family to taste test these recipes. And guess what? They thought the muffins tasted great! I started getting requests for special types of muffins. Some people I know wanted vegan muffins. Others need to have gluten free. I have friends who are diabetic or newly diabetic. I remember when I first had to cut out the fat. I became what my husband called the “food nazi”. Life became dull. Then I regained sanity and created a low fat vegetarian diet that we both love.
I decided to expand what I am doing with muffins to help expand what my friends can eat. Food is such an important part of our life and is meant to be enjoyed. So I went looking for recipes. Here is my first one for diabetics. My diabetic friends love it. I have left the nutritional values on it for people to use.
These are delicious, beautiful muffins. I serve them during the holidays or anytime cranberries are available. The leftovers always make good breakfast treats. Through the years I’ve tried many cranberry recipes for bread and muffins, but this remains my family’s all-time favorite!
I hope all of you had a great week. I know for many people you were trying to get the kids ready for school. Or you might have getting yourself ready to go back yourself. I decided to do some rearranging of Marcey’s Table. It’s been almost 4 months since I joined you. I have learned a lot. I’ve grown as a blogger. I feel that the blog needs to start changing.
I am working on my about page. When I started, I didn’t know what to write. I have a better idea. I want you all to get a better idea of who I am, what some of my interests are. The page will be something I work on over time. As the sign sign says, “work in progress.”
