Andrea Meyers - Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Bread with Cranberries

Yesterday the sun came out after Hurricane Sandy roared through. Some of our windows had steady leaks during the height of the storm, and some of our outdoor stuff got blown about, but otherwise we were very fortunate. Before the storm I went on a baking spree, something I always do so we will have…

Out of all the muffins we’ve ever made, these morning glory muffins are hands down the family favorite. They are so moist and full of good things—whole wheat flour, wheat germ, zucchini, carrots, raisins, walnuts, unsweetened coconut—and the flavor is excellent.

The final weekend of Mardi Gras is approaching, which means Pancake Day (aka Pancake Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday) is next week.

Whole Wheat Zucchini Muffins with Greek Yogurt

Whole Wheat Zucchini Muffins with Greek Yogurt - Andrea Meyers

This year the squash were a big surprise all around. We planted just three kinds of zucchini squash (dark green, yellow, and light green), and of the three, only the yellow managed to survive the onslaught of the squash vine borers. We’ve had yellow zucchini coming in pretty regularly since mid July, and we’ve made…
