This month of the secret recipe club I was assigned the blog Shugary Sweets. Aimee is the author of Shugary Sweets and I immediately felt like I connected with her from her bio and recipes. She is a mother of four, married to her best friend and loves to make family friendly fare. Her blog sucked me in the day I was given the url and I have since followed it every day. It is that good. I honestly could not decide what to make because there were so many recipes I now have marked. When I thought I had decided she would throw things out there like pumpkin scones and pumpkin cupcakes with maple frosting. You should truly go check out this blog if you like cooking and baking family friendly food. She has everything from snacks, to meals, to treats, to sinful over the top delights. Thank you Aimee for letting me bake from your blog.
Aimee has a recipe for cinnamon breakfast muffins on her blog. We do at least one big family breakfast on the weekends and I knew that these would be the perfect sweet treat to accompany the eggs and bacon. Brad got home from surfing and said the house smelled insanely good. When he took a bite he said the smell did not lie these were bananas. Well he didn't say bananas but, I wish he would say things like that some time. Aimee said they freeze well and I planned on freezing half but, no luck all 20 were gone in 24 hours. These are so delicious, simple and the kids helped which always makes my time in the kitchen more fun.
Happy Monday and thank you Shugary Sweets and Secret Recipe Club for a fun month.
