It's been a while, my friends.
When you combine all the little things in life, like the fact that my Verizon connection has been so slow the past few weeks - no really, so slow that I could have blogged and then mailed it to you with a stamp and envelope and everything - plus two kids with pink eye, three with bad colds, plus trying to learn where everything is on this new computer we are using, well, that's kind of what you get - the "It's been a while" line.
But we're back - Verizon has been spoken to, eyes drops are being administered and the rate of tissue consumption has been somewhat down this morning, so I thought it might be safe to approach the computer. We'll see how long this lasts, but I'm not crossing my fingers.
I am, however, feeling a little guilty about missing a Cookie Tuesday. I don't have a new cookie recipe to share today, and I do realize that's it not really Tuesday anymore, but in the spirit of friendship and in grateful thanks to the special people* who take the time to read my blog even though we've never actually met and who took the time to shoot me an email and see if everything was okay when they didn't get any TheCrumbFactory updates, I do have a reworked muffin recipe.
So this week will we have Muffin Wednesday. And I'm sad to say, it's not even a new recipe, it's one I have shared before, here. But when I was making them this week, I realized that I was out of applesauce.
If I had known that I was out of applesauce, I wouldn't have attempted to make the muffins. Unfortunately, I was halfway through mixing before I realized and once many of the ingredients were mixed, I couldn't just throw it all out. So instead, after panicking for half a minute and looking through a very empty fridge, I used an equal amount of yogurt - chocolate yogurt, The Stonyfield Farms organic chocolate yogurt, which while fantastic on it's own, made these muffins totally awesome. The muffins, you see, are still fiber-filed and yummy but now they are just so much better** because they are chocolate too.
So this week will we have
Are you a Mom?
Of course you are,
