Berry Cream Muffins

Double post today!  Muffins convert so nicely when the recipe includes added moisture in the form of sour cream, applesauce, zucchini, etc.  These ones are so great for breakfast.  Husband and I are headed off to the mountains today to have a little Christmas celebration just the two of us.  Our hotel includes a continental breakfast, but I just never know if that will include something I can eat.  So I'm baking muffins to bring along!

Christmas Cookies

Every year at Christmas, my Mom made my favorite cookies.  The soft white ones cut into fun shapes with icing and sprinkles on top.  They were one of the first to go after she became a celiac.  Something about being the only one eating gluten free took the motivation out of experimenting for her.  I think now that there are two of us (albeit in different homes), we are both a little more eager to make our favorites again.  This year has been a big one for experimenting and trying new recipes.
