My Daughter's Muffins~

Oh she cracked me up~ She is due to have Ollie last week.. really next week..but the hospital told her to pack her bags more than 1 week ago:)

She came over today with a plate of muffins in hand~

That were so delectable I ate one on the spot:)

She said when she was making them w/ Lulu that am.. she thought well I can always bring them to the hospital and offer the guests these:)
She just made me laugh..

They are really good..dangerously good:)

I said Oh you must send me this recipe.."I love them"..

Guess what?
No surprise..

  3. No baby yet here either! I'm glad she's keeping busy with baking such beautiful edibles! It's good to keep a sense of humor :)

  4. Those look to die for. My Ollie is 2 months old - his Nonna thinks he is the cutest.

  5. I'm not normally a muffin peson, but these DO look delectable, all crunchy topping and soft inside..!

  6. Monique, the muffins sounds delicious ... sending good thoughts for your daughter and new grandbaby-to-be.

  7. I love oats too, and these look like a delicious way to eat them. I love the story of your daughter making food for the visitors. We know where she gets that!

  8. Les photos sont plus que superbes, quel plaisir d'avoir une fille qui adore cuisiner et qui te prépare des muffins comme çà
    Bonne soirée

  9. I have a favorite blueberry recipe very similar to this one...will love trying this and compare. Oats in the topping great idea. Congrats on your you wish you were going again!!! Put your daughter in a truck and go ride down some bumpy roads...worked for me!!! xoxo~Kathy....wait a minute...I've been trying to pass a kidney stone for two days, maybe the truck thing would work for this too!!! Ha! worth a try...

  10. I will try this but substitute chocolate chips for the blueberries. :)

    Ollie does not seem to want to give up his cozy home.

  11. Ahh..I would not leave that cozy home either:)

    She IS a trooper:) And Jacques says maybe Ollie is shy?:)

    Kathy..that IS a good idea..I must tell her..but poor you w/ your stone:( Still?
    Kate..Caro and Frédérick are eons over us for hospitality!~ Truly..

    Thanks everyone:)

  12. So she getsit fromher Mama that wonderful talent of cooking ans sharing. Job well done Mama!! x

  13. Monique, your daughters muffins look perfect. I saw that the oats in the picture but didn't see them mentioned in the recipe. I had to keep reading. Great addition.

    Hope Ollie arrives soon.


  14. Yum! I love all muffins, but these look particularly wonderful. Could be the love put into them, could be the photography.

  15. It's such an exciting time for all of you! I hope it goes smoothly...the "nesting" instinct has kicked in fully with the baking! Thaey look wonderful!

    Can't wait to hear the news!


  16. Wishing your daughter a smooth delivery. Awaiting good news soon :) She's amazing. Due anytime and still baking!

  17. Such anticipation! I would be a wreck! She is clearly her "Mother's Daughter" to bake at a time like this. Come to think of it - I baked a rice pudding and ate the entire thing right before I went into labor. Long ago of course!

  18. These muffins are heavenly. I baked them and my sister-in-law was so impressed, I left the recipe on my blog for her courtesy of you. (I hope it's fine with you.) Thank you for a wonderful blog! One of the best I've seen. Inspiration.
