Cranberry Coconut Muffins

Cranberry Coconut Muffins from

I want so badly to love mornings. I love the idea of mornings: a fresh new start, the cool, quiet morning house, a still-clean kitchen, and plans for the day. But sometimes the kitchen isn’t so clean, the plans aren’t that inspiring, and the early-morning house is anything but quiet as kids awake at various […]

Cranberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Breakfast doesn’t get much better than this. This is the time of year when you  need to buy scads of fresh cranberries and squirrel them away in your freezer for the rest of the year, to make things like Cranberry Lemon Scones, Cranberry Orange Sweet Rolls, Cranberry Sauce Oat Bars, and these-here muffins.  My 6-year-old isn’t […]

Perfect Rhubarb Muffins

Let’s talk about classics that never go out of style. A good pair of jeans. One well-cut blazer. A pair of diamond studs. Nude peep-toe pumps. A pencil skirt. Some things are just classics, things every girl would use over and over and over again if she invested in them (and didn’t change size too […]

Vanilla Chocolate Chip Muffins

  I think it’s high time we had a theme week here at Hidden Ponies! We almost had a breakfast theme going, but it was never quite official or quite consistent – so welcome to official MUFFIN WEEK!  An official name means good things are sure to follow :) Today’s muffin recipe is a simple […]

Cranberry Flax Muffins

How was everyone’s weekend? Mine saw soaring temperatures and all sorts of fun.  Friday morning was spent at a wonderful local berry farm, where Gemma made gooey eyes at my friend’s handsome son, and they had a great time playing together. The kids loved the berry farm, which definitely catered to families (even someone to […]

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Does anyone else have a problem choosing a mascara? I was once again reminded of my inability to choose which one to get when my latest tube ran out. I am a grown woman. I make decisions. I make choices. Some are big, some are small. But why, oh why, am I completely inept at […]

Rhubarb Cinnamon Muffins

I love completing things I’ve pinned on Pinterest.  The majority of things I check off are recipes, so it’s doubly exciting when I actually manage to pull off something decor related.  I found this fantastic idea on the lovely blog Not JUST a Housewife, and immediately fell in love.  I’ve had empty walls in the […]

It’s true. I don’t know what to call these muffins. Besides delicious, that is! Sorry, that was awful, even for me. But truth be told, there is so much goodness in them, that there is no suitable name. However, I’m pretty sure if you ever come back to our site and want to find back […]

Best Ever Berry Muffins

I love muffins. I am considering buying a toaster oven JUST to reheat muffins, since the microwave isn’t quite cutting it for me.  The last place I worked at had a toaster oven, and reheating muffins in there restored them in seconds to their perfect, warm, crisp-topped, soft-bottomed fresh-out-of-the-oven deliciousness that I love so much.
