Welcome to this week’s Seven for Saturday!   1 –  The Best Muffins Ever   Last night Tori, my stepdaughter, made a batch of these muffins and since then, her dad and I have not been able to stop eating them. They are the best muffins I have ever tasted. I confess I’m eating another one as I type this. They’re moist with a slightly crunchy top. Sweet, but not overly so, and very satisfying.…
