Lemon Blueberry Oat Bran Muffins

Baking, Breakfast, Lifestyle

I vowed that, as a part of my New Year’s Resolution for 2016, I would plan and prepare better.  A big part of this is getting ready for the week ahead of time to avoid hectic mornings that are simply not a good start to any day!

Apple Cinnamon Scones

Baking, Breakfast

I put the word out on Instagram (@fraichenutrition if you want to follow) to get an idea of what people wanted to see for apple recipes, given my recent apple situation.  Scones came up a few times, and since they are so easy to make and we love them to bits, I thought I would whip up a batch to … View The Post
