Tea & Scones? No. Coffee & Donuts? No. Delicious Grain Free Lemon Muffins? Yes!
This week, we’re serving up grainless muffins that will NOT give you a “muffin top”! On every one of our cooking shows, Robyn and I try to bring you practical nutrition tips and delicious healthy recipes to help you become an “ageless” woman – full of vitality and health – for decades ahead. We also tend to bring you unintentional bits of nonsense simply because we are unscripted and having fun! We hope that you feel like you are in the kitchen with us just being girls and celebrating the pleasure of eating as God intended.
