Banana Muffins

I’m a muffin junkie.  That sounds terrible…junkie…lol.  What I really mean is I LOVE muffins and I’ve been on a mission to make every kind out there because they are awesome.     🙂 These banana muffins are really like a banana bread in disguise as a muffin shape.  They are full of intense banana flavor with a hint of crunch from the pecans.  I’ve topped the muffins with a cinnamon and sugar streusel to give them the perfect touch of spice and sweetness.

Cheese Danish

Heaven.  Yup, one word to describe this delectable breakfast treat. You may remember from my Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake that my family and I are HUGE fans of Entenmann’s goodies, especially my dad.   My husband and I were planning a visit with my family I thought it was the perfect opportunity to bring them another baked goodie, reminiscent of the Entenmann’s line.  A cheese danish was the perfect choice. This cheese danish has the perfect cream cheese to pastry ratio.  The pastry dough is buttery and flaky, paired with an icing that is the ideal sweetness for a morning meal.  Are you starting to see …
