Blueberry Corn Muffins Recipe

These muffins are great for breakfast.  They are quick and easy to bake because the recipe uses Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix. We don't normally like muffin mix from the box but Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix is the exception and we think it's the best muffin mix from the box and it makes really delicious corn muffins.  We packed a few this morning along with a thermal of coffee for our commute to work.  These are tasty carry-along breakfast alternatives to our beloved blueberry pancakes when we don't have time for a sit down breakfast at home. They can be stored in muffin boxes or containers for up to 3 days and when warmed up in microwave for 12-15 seconds, they taste and smell like freshly baked.  Warm or cold, these muffins taste great.

Chickpea and Sausage Minestrone

This is the best Minestrone that we ever had (both various home cooked versions we tried and the ones we had at fine Italian restaurants).  It's extremely easy and fast to make.  For a filling soup that is only 197 calories per serving, we are surprised to find out how delicious this Minestrone is.  The is awesome for busy weeknights dinners.  Click here for the recipe.
