Exploring the kitchen with a new muffin recipe.
One of my goals this month is to be more creative in the kitchen. It can be so easy to get into a cooking slump. I am definitely not a master chef by any means but one of the ways to get better at anything including cooking and baking is to try new things and to explore new ingredients. When I was little I saw an episode of Mr. Rogers where he decorated a cake baker and after that I often dreamed of being a baker who specialized in decorating cakes. When we first moved to New Hampshire and I was unsure of my career path I considered culinary school which I still wonder about sometimes. Even though neither of these dreams were realized I have been wanting to get more creative in the kitchen. Nothing ventured noting gained, right?
Today the kids wanted to make some muffins so rather than making our standard blueberry muffins we opened up the cupboard and chose some interesting additions, Organic Cacao Powder (Cacao is the purest form of Chocolate, chocolate in the raw form), and Organic Rolled oats. We also decided on organic blackberries as our final add in. The kids love trying new things and love creating their own recipes. Most of the recipes we used in our creation today were organic as we are always trying to work on clean eating in our house.
