Snow and Muffins....

It is snowy here in NJ and the school are closed. So curl up with a nice cup of love and blueberry muffin, but WHICH ONE???
Berry muffins are as American as apple pie. You can find them everywhere from gas stations to bagel shops, and even at your neighborhood coffee stand. Here are two similar choices, both from specialized coffee shops. These freshly baked treats might look (and smell) quite tempting in the morning as you're picking up your coffee, but one is clearly the low-cal winner. Caribou Coffee's Reduced Fat Mountain Berry Muffin contains three kinds of berries in its moist cake. Starbucks' Low Fat Blueberry Muffin is pretty descriptive itself. How much do "low fat" and "reduced fat" differ? Enough to make one of these berry-filled muffins the low-cal winner...
Check back tomorrow, we'll tell you which one should have been the better on this snow day......


  1. I'm already curled up! What are you doing today??? I hope that you are safe and warm and that you have cocoa in hand and a muffin in the other! I love you so much.

  2. After working 14 hour shifts last week and not having to go anywhere, me and my house spent some quality time alone...ohhhhh it was so wonderful. The sleep of it all...hehe Love you!
