I just wanted to say Hello! I was having a little trouble signing on, mainly because I couldn't read my own handwriting for my password - but finally figured it out.

I am happy to be here.

My family is now teeny tiny, just two of us, so am always looking on the internet for fun recipes, I can easily resize to a smaller quantity and/or freeze. I will post some of them here and hope you like them. Linda

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Line two 24-cup mini-muffin pans with paper mini-muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, oil, orange zest, 1 teaspoon of the vanilla and the eggs until well blended.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt, then stir into the wet ingredients until just blended. Fold in the carrots, dried cranberries and coconut.
  4. Fill muffin cups halfway with the batter and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, until they spring back lightly when touched in the center.
  5. Place on racks to cool.
