Irresistable carrot cake muffins

It's been a while since I shared a baked recipe or sweet recipe on the blog, but it's been worth the wait as these were a mid-week night winner this week. I made these muffins for my mum's birthday on Tuesday and we enjoyed them with some candles and a happy birthday...

Chocolate Orange Truffles

Coconut poached pears with lemon & ginger
