Cooking from scratch is healthy, fun, and self-empowering. You decide what ingredients to use. My recipes feature lots of vegetables, spices, beans, whole grains, tofu, baked goods and desserts. All so tasty you won’t miss the meat, eggs or dairy. I do try to keep it healthy. I veer off-topic from time to time for reviews and things that catch my interest.

Whole Wheat Nectarine Muffins with Streusel Topping
Whole wheat nectarine muffins topped with streusel.
This is a nice muffin to make when nectarines are in season. The muffin itself is not very sweet so the streusel adds a nice touch of sweet crunch. You may notice I haven't used a whole lot of streusel; a small amount is perfectly fine. The recipe makes about 9 to 12 muffins depending on how much batter you use for each muffin. When I'm in the mood for oversized muffins that spill over the top of the pan, it makes about 9.
Mix together and set aside while you get the rest of the ingredients together.
