Jam Muffins

I guest posted over at Supper for a Steal. If you want to see the recipe head over there!

These are super yummy!  You can use your favorite jam or if you want to finish off a jam jar.  And you can mix and match flavors really easily too.  The raspberry did not come out very strong in these.  But they were still really great.

I already have all the ingredients for this recipe in my pantry.  So no extra trips to the grocery store.  I love to bake, so I keep my pantry pretty well stocked for baking, but it is unlikely that you will have to buy more than one or two ingredients for these muffins.

Blackberry-Peach Granita

The past few days have been so hot!!!  I can not function properly in crazy heat.  It is a good thing I don’t live any farther south.  I might never be productive again!

My favorite way to beat the heat is with yummy ice cold desserts.  Therefore, I give you blackberry peach granita.  I love my coffee granita and I had some left over peaches and blackberries around.  So I thought I would give it a whirl.
