Muffins and Parades

Ella really wanted me to make her pancakes with bacon this morning, as it is a Saturday. But since it is also the 4th of July, and we were going to a parade near the beach in Santa Monica our leisure time was cut short. So I made these muffins to take with us and to hand out to our friends. I made Lemon Coconut muffins from the Annalise Roberts cookbook and Banana Muffins (Banana Bread recipe) from the Culinary Institute's GF cookbook. They were really yummy. Everyone seemed to love them and no one missed the wheat flour. A friend was there with her children, who all have food allergies. The hardest part for her is that everyone has a different list of things that they have to avoid. Her son cannot have nuts, her daughter cannot have dairy, gluten or wheat. So her son got to partake in the cupcakes and muffins, her daughter did not. Thankfully, she did not seem to notice them anyway.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous holiday weekend! XOXO!
