    Cranberry Orange Bran Muffins

    One of things I loved to do with my Grandma when I was young was to help her bake. I would stand on her kitchen chair next to her at her counter and we would bake all kinds of delicious food.

Feel free to mix things up, I like the spiciness that the seasoning and pepper jack cheese provides. Quinoa Stuffed Peppers Ingredients: 2 Peppers, any variety 1 Cup quinoa, cooked (2 cups water to 1 cup quinoa) 1…
