I think I might have spoiled TheBetterHalf with all of the baking I do. Let me explain…we almost always have something for him to bring to work for breakfast. I package up muffins and breads and donuts in packs of two and pop them in the freezer so that he can grab one each morning on his way out the door. However I haven’t been baking as much recently and was out of town last weekend, so our frozen baked good reserves are totally depleted! He was actually complaining (jokingly, of course) that he had nothing to bring for breakfast!! Spoiled. So spoiled. I kindly reminded him that there are markets / bodegas / coffee shops on nearly every corner in NYC and that they all have a lovely selection of breakfast items. But it did lead me to make some muffins this past weekend to keep him happy – Orange Chocolate Chip Yogurt Muffins! And I’m really not complaining – I love having someone enjoy my baked goods! …

Hello from 35,000 feet in the air! TheBetterHalf and I are on our way to Seattle for memorial day weekend. (Ok now that I have internet to post this, we are already in Seattle. But I wrote this on the plane :) ) We are so excited for our little getaway – I desperately need a vacation. I’ve heard great things about this city, and I know it has a great food scene! Our list of places to eat is long but there is always room for more– if you have any suggestions, let me know!  And make sure to follow me on Instagram for picture updates from our trip.

With memorial day weekend comes summer and with summer comes zucchini! I love baking with zucchini in the summertime. You don’t taste it at all, but it makes baked goods really moist. Plus, who couldn’t use a little extra nutrition in their muffins? And to top it all off, these chocolate zucchini muffins are 100% whole wheat, are made with Greek yogurt, and use coconut oil!  Such a healthy and delicious way to start your day.

But I really love lemon too! So even though I could eat these chocolate frosted donuts every day, I wanted to give lemon donuts a shot.

And wow, I’m so glad I did! These baked lemon donuts are absolutely amazing. The flavor is delicious – so fresh and citrusy.  I think these would be a lovely thing to make for Mother’s Day brunch!
