Baking afternoon


Well once again we had a bit of snow this afternoon but I was just out long enough to enjoy the 15 minutes of sunshine and humane temperatures. This put me in an excellent mood, so I threw on the ipod with my crazy music mix (Abba to ZZ Top and everything in between including Les Miserables and Tchaikovsky, ipods were invented for me!), and got into baking. Now baking is NOT my strong suit, I have been known to royally mess up even boxed cake mixes. I don't like to measure and use too many utensils. But for some reason this receipe for fat free muffins my friend Debi from Tap dancing class gave to me, never fails to please. It is super easy and so delicious. Bonus if you have a cute muffin tin like the one I used from NordicWare :-) Enjoy!
