RECIPE

Berry Muffins

I have been making lots of muffins, scones and cookies lately. The kids are loving them for school snacks and lunches. The kids are always so excited to see what special treat will be in their lunch box. Every day one of the kids is telling me one of their friends wish I would pack their lunch too. Plus the hubs loves a special treat every now and then too.

I made these muffins to also give as gift. It is always nice to have things on hand to bring some cheer to a neighbor, coworker or friend. I am one to always have some bake goods on hands to give as a gift. You can put these muffins in a box with parchment paper and wrap a bow around it and add some greenery to it. So pretty and simple. Something about a homemade gift I think is extra special.

I would love to hear some of your favorite homemade gifts that you make or that you have received.

Merry Christmas from my Kitchen 🎄
