The other day Judah was sitting at the kitchen table and out of the blue he said "Mommy, what is the baker doing?". Not knowing what he was referring to, I replied "Well honey, what do you think the baker is doing?" I could see the wheels turning in his mind for a second and then he replied "Maybe the baker is making muffins!!!!". Then and there, I decided that Judah and I need to make some muffins together and we need to do it soon. Today we finally got around to it. We ended up kind of making up our own recipe and although they are super healthy, they are also super yummy! Judah is used to not eating white flour and to him, raisins are a treat so, he loves them.
Before we started our baking, I made Judah and his very special stuffed puppy, "Sandals" baker hats. A baker always needs a baker hat, right? And so does his puppy, of course!
