Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins

If you know me you know that I’m not a very healthy baker or eater. But I figure that if I can run around with a couple of healthy people, some of their good cholesterol and vibes just might rub off on me. Cecilia is probably one of my most healthy friends. She walks and … Continue reading

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

I know I said I would post two healthy recipes before going into desserts, but…I’m thinking that because these have peanut butter in them, that should count for something.
