Caramelizing a little peaches on top is a favorite of mine during peach season with …

These muffins are no exception for her amazingness. I actually had to hid them in the laundry room so that my husband and kids would not eat them. So when my baby was sleeping and my boys were at school I sat down and enjoyed …
