The results of blog-browsing!

I went searching for something delicious to indulge in for my "Free Friday" last week, and came across this heavenly looking temptation at the Gerber Days blog:

"Free Friday" is the one day a week I let myself indulge in the yummalicious stuff I avoid the rest of the week. It really helps me stay on track with my healthy eating when I know that I have this one day without rules. I enjoy browsing recipes and choosing what I will treat myself to, and then shopping for the ingredients...and more often than not, I end up with a delicious new recipe to add to my collection.

If you think you may want to try a routine similar to "Free Friday" let me warn you in advance, from my own experience, DO NOT chow down on everything in sight. Just choose one or two items that will be your indulgences for that day, otherwise you'll end up with a food hangover, or worse.

So back to the muffins! I knew instantly these would find their way into my tummy!
My son is out of college for the summer and had the day off from work as well, so we went and picked out the ingredients, making sure to get everything super fresh, then we came home and went to baking!

I cannot begin to describe how fabulous these smelled while they were in the oven...I'm just glad the neighbors weren't beating down my door for handouts!
They were moist, bursting with flavors, and beautiful to look at. This recipe is now filed among my favorites and will for sure be used often, especially for those trips to see friends and pot lucks. These would bring a smile to the grumpiest of grumps!

For the recipe, please visit Gerber Days blog, here:


  1. I'd like to know which is the traditional recipe for muffins. I bought a book completely dedicated to muffins but I tried some of those recipes and got a very stuff dough!

  2. The dough for this muffin is also very dense, but bakes up with a full body and moist crumb...delicious.
    In my experience, muffin batter is thicker and I usually "scoop" it into the tins, while cupcake batter is more of a pourable consistency.
    Hope this helps. :)

  3. This is a page to keep!! Yum!

  4. Now this is something my son would die for. Gotta check that out. Thanks for sharing. Take care and God Bless!
