Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Muffins

I have a feeling that if we were to go back in time to the early 80’s and eat a muffin, we’d be disappointed. Are you old enough to remember disco era muffins? Let me set the stage.

What can I do to help around here?” And though I sometimes respond with here take this baby I need to change out of these pajamas” something less wonderful, it’s a great day when I can say “Everything’s done, sit down, I made you muffins. Yesterday was a great day. I made muffins.” Continue reading
