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.
LIME-BERRY CORN MEAL MUFFINS
2/3 Cup Corn meal
2 Cups Almond Flour
2/3 Cup Sugar
1 Cup mixed berries (I used blueberries and raspberries)
2 Limes, zest and juice
Place butter and sugar in a medium bowl and mix until it becomes light and fluffy
Add rest of the ingredients and stir carefully until well combined
Divide the mixture into 12-16 muffin liners
Bake for 20-25 minutes until a tooth pick comes out clean
I wanted to make a red version of a Pesto, so I came up with this combination of flavors that were absolutely delicious. You can pair it with Poultry, fish, simple toast or pasta just as I did this time. It is the easiest to make too. Just throw all the ingredients in the blender (or if you have a food processor much better), and done!
We are all into Christmas Spirit, it will be here before we know it! Can’t wait to see, chat and share precious moments with all my loved ones. But before that, today is December the 12th and it is the day we celebrate The Virgin of Guadalupe “The Patroness of Mexico”
A little bit of history, The Virgin of Guadalupe appeared to the indian Juan Diego when he was on his way to look for help for his sick uncle. The Virgin told him his uncle was already healthy. She asked him to go up the Tepeyac Hill where he would find some roses, a place and time of the year they didn’t grow. Then take the roses to the Bishop as a testimony of her appearances and ask for the construction of a temple. So Juan Diego went to the bishop and the Virgin revealed an image of herself on the apron where he had been carrying the roses. This was the fourth time The Virgin of Guadalupe appeared to Juan Diego. Since then, December the 12th 1531, we celebrate the miraculous act.

Love pecans, I bet you can tell by my main blog’s picture. Right now is harvest season. My husband has been working so hard. Today I’m roasting some pecans with fresh rosemary. They are super delicious. They are great snack or even you can add them to your salads. Can’t wait for my husband to come home and try them!
