I was looking for a gluten-free muffin to bake, these came out more than I was expecting. The lime zest make them so refreshing and the baked blueberries just pop in your mouth like a little balloon of flavor! So good! I like to bake muffins because they are the perfect portion. Don’t have to worry if one slice is thicker than the other. They freeze perfectly, so you always have a quick breakfast ready or a perfect munch with your coffee for a snack.

This is barely a recipe, more, is just an idea for a healthy delicious breakfast on a busy schedule. Just  toast a slice of bread spread greek thick yogurt and top it with your choice of fruit.

Gluten Free Apple Bread

My son is visiting! So excited! He loves to cook, bake and everything related. He’s been following a gluten-free diet for about a month now, will see how that turns out. Meanwhile, we had a great time baking this delicious apple bread. We made some little mistakes, like mixing up tablespoons with teaspoons, but it didn’t matter because it smelled and tasted wonderful anyway.

We had this bread for breakfast with a nice cup of coffee, we also had it for dessert with a little spoon of ice cream!

He found in the internet a mixture of flours to replace wheat flour. So you can transform any baking good to gluten-free. It was interesting all the way from the grocery store to the tasting. Just delicious and above all, building good memories!

Migas con Huevo

My father has been in my mind lately. His birthday and the anniversary of his departure were fairly recent. I miss him, he was a very honest hardworking man and admirably, he was always in a very good mood. I remember he loved migas con huevo, he could have it for breakfast or dinner. The first thing that came to his mind when mom asked him what he wanted to eat, was Migas con Huevo.

It is such a simple yet delicious dish. I must have passed this crave to my children, because I also remember them as little children climbing on a chair to chop the tortillas for me to prepare the eggs.

Hope you like this way to prepare eggs that bring me such good memories. Serve them with salsa, some avocado slices or refried beans.

Flourless Almond Macadamia Muffins

It has been a while since I don’t bake. It is snowing and gray, so with this kind of weather I’d love to have a hot cup of coffee with a nice nutritious muffin.

Yesterday morning  my little puppies ( I have two 3 lb Chihuahuas) were urging me to take them out. They didn’t understand it was cold and snowing. It was so cold that Rhea didn’t want to step outside the door mat and Romulo who is more adventurous, walked about 6 feet away when he started limping on one leg and then another leg and before he could come back to the mat he wasn’t able to walk. This happen in a matter of seconds. I carried both of them and went in side. They spent the rest of the morning next to the fire-place.

This muffins are delicious! Only good things in there like almonds, macadamias, coconut flakes. They freeze perfectly, pop them in the microwave and you can have a healthy warm breakfast! Give them a try, and let me know how you like them!
