Magic Muffins

It has been a long while since I have posted a recipe on my blog.  I have been making these muffins a lot lately. My kids love them, and that is always a bonus to get my kids eating healthy stuff.  My friends have been asking for the recipe for the last month.  Sorry it took so long!!  The recipe started out from the Malto Meal box.  I then just substituted out and added in things that best suited our way of eating to make it healthier.  If you are gluten free you can always use rice flour instead of wheat.  We have a juicer so I just save some of  the pulp in a container in the fridge, so I have it on had when I make my muffins.  You don’t have to, but it is a great way to add in veggies and your kids won’t know  the difference.

Ballet Birthday

Grace was beyond thrilled to attend a ballet birthday party for her dear friend Kennedy today.  The girls were invited for a ballet lesson at her dance studio, and then enjoyed frozen yogurt, and cupcakes after there lesson.  Great idea Sarah!        Grace had such a fun time.  Happy 5th Birthday Kennedy.
