I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

The go-to muffin recipe you need right now!
If you don't have chocolate chips handy then substitute dried cranberries or raisins or even nuts. You can also use yogurt in place of the milk. Here's a confession... I had some milk that had soured a while back so I froze it and what do you know! I found a use for it right here in these muffins! Waste not want not!
1 cup milk 
1 cup oatmeal
1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Begin by combining the milk and oatmeal and let soak for 15 minutes.
Next beat the egg and vegetable oil together in a large bowl and add the milk and oatmeal mixture.
Mix the dry ingredients together and add to the wet in two additions just until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spoon into prepared muffin tin.
Bake at 425°F for 20-25 minutes. Cool 5-10 minutes in pan then remove to a rack.
Makes 12
