Aye yi yi!!! Where have I been? It’s complicated, but the simple answer is that life has gotten in the way of blogging. First, I was struck down by a sinus infection that was hard to shake. Couple that with work, volunteering at the kids’ school, the Jewish high holidays, well…you get the picture. I owe my poor neglected blog (and my readers!) an apology. Let me make it up to you with a delicious new recipe!
My son loves apple pie…or more specifically my apple pie (courtesy of Paula Deen!). Apple pie is not something I’m going to make every day, but I got to thinking about how great it would be to have all the flavors of apple pie in a muffin. That would be awesome! Surely, I’m not the only person who thinks this way. As it turns out, apple pie muffins are not an original thought at all. A little online search and voila, I had a recipe in hand to try.
You see I’m always looking for ways to pump some calories into that boy. He’s been improving a little lately on his picky eating (which I’m afraid to even mention for fear I will jinx that progress). He’s always been a carbs guy so muffins are really a no-brainer. I made this recipe several weeks back, and my son has been taking these apple pie muffins to school on a regular basis as a snack. I just made a batch and froze them all. Every morning before school, I pop an apple pie muffin into his snack bag, and it’s defrosted by snack time. So easy!
