I love using fresh fruit in my desserts. This recipe has been one that I have been working on for a while. The versatility of this recipe is great for seasonal baking, just use whatever berries or jams you have handy. My favorite is a simple Strawberry because I always have these ingredients in my fridge. Baby Boy LOVES strawberry so it is in high demand always.

Red, White and Blue Muffins

In remembrance of those brave men and women that have served our Country. Farm Fresh and Active thanks the hero’s of our great nation. May God be with you and your families and may He send peace to Americans throughout the day. I took some time to reflect on today. My students are in 2nd grade, they were not born when this tragic event occurred. They had no idea and asked why we had Constitution Day. I filled them in on the events and shared where I was 11 years ago. My husband and I have chosen to go to NYC this year to run the Stephen Siller 5k through the tunnel toward the tower memorial. Going into this race at the end of the month, I know it will be extremely touching and tearful but I really want to do something to show support for all of those who have died. How did you take time today?

Use Paleo Crunch recipe that I posted on my blog in November.
Cut up strawberries and break up bits of dark chocolate.
Place warm crunch, strawberries and chocolate in a bowl and enjoy!

Even though the flyers lost the Winter Classic, we still enjoyed the game and enjoyed a delicious meal together before we both head back to work tomorrow :) We even got some snow flurries and cleaned and organized our entire house- what a great Winter Break!
