Do You Know the Muffin Man???

 I can't seem to stop making these muffins.
They are fun to make and they look really nice fresh out of the oven.

 Today I made lots as a treat for some very special friends.
My daughter has been on a mission trip with our Youth Group from church.
They have been to St. Simons Island Georgia.

 I have packaged each adult who took such good care of my daughter a few of these muffins.

All nice and warm and ready to go...

 I also played around a little by making some cinnamon muffins for my own family.
I just left out the chocolate chips and added a teaspoon of cinnamon to the mix.
Then, I mixed about 1/4 cup of sugar with some cinnamon and sprinkled on top.
Seemed to work just fine.

Here is the link once more to the original recipe:

Blue Jar Glasses

 Give my daughter a little time with Pinterest,
and she has to create something.
With a little help from her Daddy and the Dog Days Flea Market, she created these unique glasses.

 The blue jars came from Kroger.
The grommets came from the flea market.
My daughter's favorite part of making these was saying the word "grommets".  
I know she has said it at least 100 times.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

My children love it when I make 
chocolate chip muffins.  
Up until this week, I have gotten away with using the box mixes from the grocery store.
For some reason, I decided to look for a recipe on the internet to make muffins from scratch.

Oh what a recipe I found.
These are the best chocolate chip muffins ever.
This website is now a permanent part of my top computer tool bar.
I have already made four batches.

If you decide to try making them, I highly recommend closely following the directions on the website. 
I think it is important to not stir too much, and I love the way the oil, egg, and milk are mixed together in the measuring cup.
Also, I use regular salt, and I always use 
milk chocolate chips.
I hope you get a chance to make some for yourselves.
(Just please don't tell my kids they contain 
sour cream.)
