The boys usually like just about every muffin. Favorites tend to have chocolate chips (orange coconut chocolate chip mini muffins) or peanut butter (peanut butter chocolate chip muffins).

Long time no recipe post! This summer has been beyond insane. I am so ready for school to start up again. Swim has kept us extremely busy, more than I ever expected. Luckily my volunteering duties are nearly done. We only have the City Meet left and a banquet to plan. This week is our first week of no evening meets or practices.
