Its nice to be home alone....

After dropping Brix at school, stopping at the Vita course to walk 2 laps and listen to some Michael Jackson. I came home to a quiet house and made some zucchini muffins half with walnuts and half without ( so Brix can take them to school)

I used this great pumpkin tin that I got for Brix 1st birthday party, it was a halloween costume party! The recipe is vegan of course! from my favorite cook book! Here's a great tip when your baking, I always have a great big bowl of cut up fruit out that I can munch on instead of eating the raw dough! But the good/bad/good thing about baking vegan is that there is never any raw egg so its totally safe to eat the raw dough!
