Baking Muffins!

The weather has been a bit cooler than our typical summer weather so it was perfect baking weather! We are discovering that Lanie is a great baker and enjoys cooking as well.  She headed to the kitchen and made some chocolate chip muffins!

They turned out absolutely perfect don't you think?

After they were out of the oven she wanted to "test" one with a friend and the only one that was home was Ivy.

Ivy gave no argument to trying one right from the oven...YUMMY!

The muffins were delicious with a nice tall glass of cold milk.

They were definitely going to be a hit with the rest of the girls...

Lanie blushed a bit when Ivy shared just how good she thought they were...and felt proud.  She can't wait to share with the others once they get home her special treat that she made.

It's so nice to have special friends to share the gifts that you have with...

and now to clean up the kitchen!

What is your favorite special treat that you enjoy?  Is it something that you can make with the help of a parent or friends or something that you can make on your own?

Here is Lanie's recipe if you want to try it out:

Lanie's Favorite Chocolate Chip Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
