The Life Lessons Department at the J would like to share some favorite recipes with you.
“I’ve always found cooking and baking both enjoyable and therapeutic and have been doing a lot of this in between work, reading and television,” says Bev Nadler, Director of the Life Lessons programs. This recipe is not from an Adult Cooking Class but one that I think is worth sharing. It’s easy and uses ingredients that most people have available at home. Hope you’ll try making these muffins…they’re yummy!!
