Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is one of grandma's (Virgi Diephuis) muffin recipes. The boys will eat these up when they visit grandma and grandpa. But, I also like to make these ahead and bring them along to serve as breakfast in the car when we need to leave early in the morning for a road trip.
