I am a lover of my husband, adorable children, and last but not least food. I first started baking when I was just a little girl. My mom always had an amazing home-cooked meal on the table and she always encouraged me to help. Much of what I know has come from watching her in the kitchen. I used to love to pretend I owned a restaurant and cook things up for my siblings and their friends. Not much has changed :) Now my sweet husband and kids get to be my taste testers. I love exploring new ingredients and am always looking for the best of the best when it comes to recipes. I hope you enjoy the site as much as I do. Through this blog I will share just a few of my favorite things- my passion for child development, my wonderful family, and my love for food :) Happy blogging!

The Sisters Cafe: South Beach Muffins

I have made these muffins a few times now. They are so great and my husband LOVES them! They are full of all that's good for you too :) Enjoy!

Bowl One:
2 c. whole grain oats
2 ½ c. lowfat buttermilk
1 c. unsweetened applesauce
1 c. or one 6-oz bag of dried cranberries

Bowl Two:
2 ½ c. whole wheat flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/3 c. chopped walnuts
1 scant tsp. salt

Bowl Three:
2 eggs, beaten
2 c. sugar (or splenda, although I’ve never tried it)
4 tsp vanilla
2/3 c. canola oil

Preheat oven to 375°. Add bowl one to bowl three and mix well. Add bowl two and mix just enough to moisten. DO NOT OVERMIX. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full and bake for 20 or so minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean or with defined moist crumbs on it. Makes 2 dozen.
