Muffin Monday – Double Chocolate Coffee Muffins

The weekend is over, but it was perfect!  Ending a weekend cooking, AND baking, makes for a happy baker!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to meet Anuradha from Baker Street.  We made Toblerone muffins together…..Ummmm, YUM!!!   I had a happy husband that Monday!

This Monday we are making a muffin recipe from a chef I adore.  I believe I started watching Nigella Lawson in the beginning of my FoodNetwork addiction love.

I love watching FoodNetwork personalities that dance when they enjoy their dishes!  I believe I let out my little secret weeks ago about my dancing when food is WAY too good!  Food should be celebrated, so why not dance a little too right?

Well let’s get this party started!!!
