Spinach Muffins

 I have been having a lot of fun this past month.  I have been working on three things I love to do.  Making meals/snacks for my family, photography and digitalscrapbooking.  (When I have time that is)  In this post I get to use all three of my hobbies. 
    I got this recipe from .  She creates a lot of recipes that taste great but are healthy at the same time.  I recommend visiting her website.   Here is one of my favorite recipes.  Find it below or here is a link to her recipe
   It is a Spinach Muffin recipe.  My kids love it!
