do ahead muffins aka: best recipe ever!

My friend & fellow ballet mom, Gail told me about this recipe recently.
Can I just say...
It's amazing & I am experiencing breakfast happiness & love.
The key: make the batter ahead of time...
freeze the batter in the muffin tins to form a frozen shape...
then pop them in the oven on the busy morning when you need them!!!
I made them last night- then popped them into a gallon sized freezer bag this morning-
except for the 10 I baked up.
Not only are they easy but they taste fantastic.
I made blueberry & cannot wait to try the other varieties.
check out the recipe
thanks gail!

Spinach and Feta Pasta

Tonight I made a new recipe from my new cookbook Our Best Bites.  It was a HUGE success!  It only took me about 15 minutes to make this simple easy pasta dish.  For the recipe go here.   This picture does not have the feta cheese in it, I had to put that on the side not every one at my house is a feta cheese fan. 

Spinach,Tomato, Pesto and Cheese Panini

 I was introduced to this YUMMY sandwich at a meeting by one of my friends.  It is very simple but oh so good!  All you need is a bread of your choice.  Sourdough tastes yummy and so does multi grain bread.   You need a little bit of pesto and spread it on both slices of bread. Then add some sun dried tomatoes to one side of the bread.
Then add spinach and  fresh mozzarella cheese. That's all the ingredients!
Then put the sandwich on your panini maker to grill it or grill it on the stove.  These sandwiches are very YUMMY and hit the spot!
