Today is a baking day. I personally do not like to bake but I do like to eat so a have to endure every once in a while. I made a triple batch of morning glory muffins to replenish my freezer supply. They turn out different every time, I'm not good at sticking to a recipe. They call for 3 eggs per batch but I figured that was way too many so I did 6 total. Almost 4 cups of sugar, nope I did 2. I didn't want to use up all my cinnamon so I experimented with some different things like allspice and pumpkin pie spice mix. I also cut down on the oil and used all whole wheat flour, plus I used zucchini and summer squash in addition to the carrots. They are actually pretty healthy, they have coconut, raisins, apples, carrots, zucchini, summer squash and flax seeds to replace the nuts. They taste pretty good too, I already had three and I only got finished with then 2 hours ago.
Right know I'm waiting on the bread machine to finish the dough to try my hand at bagel making. Hopefully they turn out okay. I did add some whole wheat so we'll see. Dinner is barbecued chicken on the grill so I don't have more of a mess to clean up. The worst part of baking in the mess. Well have a wonderful day!
Edit: Bagels turned out awesome! I made them plain with no egg wash, I just used a little oil on top. Delicious. Pretty they were not, awkward shaped and they flattened out a bit but yummy all the same. I am envisioning them toasted with tuna, lettuce and tomato. Also made into mini pizza's would be tasty. I brought one to the hubby while he was at work, it was all warm yet, and he asked me twice if I really made them. They were that good.

Aren't those bagels the best?!? We love them over here. I will only make them now if the boys are sure they will eat them because otherwise I have to eat them--you make sure they turned out ok. Those muffins sound good. Maybe I can get the recipe from you?
