Chocolate Chip Muffins ~Chocolate Chips. This is the twin to my Blueberry Muffins but for the ingredient that gives them their name. Muffins are so quick and easy to prepare. Only one bowl to dirty and cleanup is almost done once they hit the oven. The aroma that gently permeates the air, the smiles on the faces of loved ones as they anticipate that timer to ring. These are the memories that keep me baking each and every day. Now is the season keep that oven going and help warm up the house! What are you going to bake today?
