How was your weekend?

I guess it’s because of the cold weather outside, but all I wanted to do this weekend was stay indoors! I spent mine looking for more recipes ideas for all of you and one of them was these tasty Carrot muffins recipe!

During the week, I always have to run from one place to another, home, office, site visits, clients, yoga,.. It can be really exhausting, even more, when it’s under 32ºF, and you are totally a beach girl!

So, this weekend I took it easy, I did some home spa, read a good book, and bake! I don’t know why, but there is something about the smell when baking that has a relaxing effect that I love!

One of the goodies I baked these days was these delicious Carrot Muffins recipe. The quantities make a dozen of them so freeze some and the rest,.. well, I already know what I am going to snack this week while racing around Manhattan!
