Chocolate Chip Muffins

I whipped these muffins up one night to snack on during family game night.  We were playing spoons, which usually leads to ice cream for some reason.  Then the next morning we have no spoons to stir coffee or eat cereal because they’re all dirty from the game playing, ice cream eating fun the night before.

So, I’ll be turning to some folks who can help out.  One of those people is Katie from Kitchen Stewardship.  She knows healthy foods like I know my slow cooker. [Read more…]
