Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Picture

I have one word for you; Chocolate. That’s right – Chocolate. What a beautiful word that is, wouldn’t you agree? I know I have told you this before, but for the sake of this recipe post, I will tell you again; I am a chocoholic. Actually, let me rephrase that – I am a very serious chocoholic. Whenever I hear the word chocolate something stirs inside me. It doesn’t matter how focused on a given task I might be, if somebody says chocolate, I can’t help but drop whatever I’m doing to discuss a chocolate situation.Yes, my intense daily need for chocolate can definitely be classified as a very serious addiction, but I gotta say it is hard to find the negative side to being a chocoholic – because come on, it is just so darn delicious!

Personally, I think that there is absolutely nothing wrong with being a chocoholic. I mean aren’t there experts out there that are now saying that a little bit of chocolate every day is actually good for you because it can have some great health benefits for your body… people say that, right? Alright so I’m no scientist, but what I do know about chocolate is that is makes me and my tummy very happy, and if there is one thing we could all do with a little more of in our lives, I think it would be happiness. Am I right? I’m glad we are on the same page about this 😀

Suffice to say, there is not a day that goes by that I don’t indulge in a little bit of chocolate in some shape or form. Whether it be a large spoonful (or two) of chocolate almond butter, a chocolate chip cookie or just a straight up chocolate bar… in one way or another, I will have my daily dose of chocolate.  A day without chocolate is like a day without water or a day without air. In short; a day without chocolate quite simply a day that is not complete in my opinion. :p So yes – I am addicted to chocolate. Does this addiction bother me? No. Can I still lead a healthy lifestyle in spite of this addiction? Absolutely! Case in point, these Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins – Ohh yes!Read More

Good morning lovelies!

I know, I know, it’s Monday morning so good might not be the exact word you would use to describe the morning, but the sun is shining in Vancouver and that is enough to make me smile – even if it is a Monday :p

So is anybody else as stoked as I am about daylight savings? We just switched out clocks ahead this weekend and the extra hour of daylight yesterday evening and the prospect of the days to come getting longer and longer is definitely enough to keep me exceptionally excited for a good long while! Yayyyy daylight savings!!! (I have said it before and I will say it again… it really is the simple things that make me happy :D)

Hello every body!

So allow me to rectify this injustice right now by saying thank you SOOOO much for stopping by today! Honestly, I am so grateful to everybody who takes the time to check out my website, read my blog posts and try out my recipes in their own homes. It truly means so much to me that you are even remotely interested in my baking escapades, so thank you so much for reading :):):) xoxoxox

And now back to the goods – and lets be honest what you really came here for… and that would be these Mini Pumpkin Spice Muffins. Is it just me or are all baked goods more desirable when they are in miniature form??? I personally think so – in fact I would go so far as to say that most things in life are more desirable when they are in miniature form… wouldn’t you agree?

Buttermilk Blueberry Muffins

Alright, so it is officially blueberry season and it seems like everywhere I go there are blueberries just begging for me to take them home and bake them into something delicious! The amount of fresh fruit in my house right now is bordering on insane but I just can help myself! All of the local berries have finally started to show up at my produce store and it is all just too scrumptious to pass up! I see a flat of deep blue blueberries and I think “Yes, I NEED these!” Hence the cornucopias amount of blueberries on my counter right now. My boyfriend was beginning to get a little bit worried about exactly what I was going to do with such a large amount pf blueberries, but he needn’t worry (silly man) – I had big plans for those blueberries!
