Snappy Ginger Muffins
Meet the Cook: To tell the truth, I cook out of necessity but enjoy myself when I bake! I make these for school lunches and my husband to take with him to work. They are nice to serve for breakfast besides.
Our children are 9 and 5. While we don't farm, our home's out in the country and we do have a pony here.
