Zucchini, Basil and Sundried Tomato savory muffin (homemade from scratch – see below), with a dollop of mayonnaise, some sliced pancetta and baby greens!

Muffin inspiration from Bauhaus, who was inspired by Tiny Banquet’s recipe for Zucchini Basil Muffins. For a little change, I added diced sun dried tomatoes, a personal favorite.

Yum yum. :o)

This is my reminder to eat this breakfast (w/optional fruits) more often.

A fantastic idea for children – mini pizzas using English muffins. Simply split the muffin, spread on pizza sauce and sprinkle over some shredded pizza cheese (a mix of parmesan, cheddar, whatever!). If your kids would like a more exotic pizza, add pineapples, ham, broccoli, mushroom, whatever they like. Bake in the oven at 400F (200C) for about 8 minutes, or until the cheese is melty.

Easy and quick for after school snacks too!

Cherry Cheese Cake

This is a Cherry Cheese Cake. Recipe below. This is what it looked like at first. Then I looked at the picture and it had a ring of cherries around the edge so I tried to do that. The next picture is the result of that. P.S. Ignore the fresh cherries to the right. The recipe called for canned pie filling so that’s what we used.

Royal Cherry Cheese Cake

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
6 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
3 Tbsp. granulated sugar

3 8-oz. packages of cream cheese, softened 3 eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 21-oz can of cherry pie filling

Preheat oven to 375°F. Brush bottom and sides of the spring form pan with melted butter. Chill in the freezer until ready to use.

Crust: Using a fork or pastry cutter, blend all crust ingredients together in small bowl until well mixed. Press mix firmly against bottom and sides of a 9" spring form pan.

Filling: Using low speed on a mixer, cream together sugar and cream cheese from filling ingredients. Add eggs one at a time and beat well into mixture. Add vanilla and lightly beat until well blended. Pour filling into crust.

Bake at 375°F for 40-50 minutes.

Chill thoroughly for at least 2 hours and decorate with pie filling before slicing.
