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!

Veggie-loaded with sweet shredded carrots, bursts of tangy, juicy cranberries and a hint of orange. What's not to love in these breakfast muffins?

1/3 cup avocado oil (or vegetable oil)
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup orange juice
zest of 1 orange
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ginger
2 cups finely shredded carrot
3/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
coarse pink sugar, optional

Combine the oil and sugar, then beat in the eggs. Add the orange juice, zest and vanilla. 
Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and ginger together and add to the wet ingredients, mixing just until combined.
Fold in the carrots and cranberries.

Ladle into paper lined muffin tins. Sprinkle with coarse sugar if using it then bake at 350°F for 23-25 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
