IMG_4250

If you have some orange juice, heavy cream and flour in your pantry, this is a recipe to try. I found this recipe online  and it looked delicious as well as nutritious. It’s winter break now for my son, so I do not have to rush through the breakfast. The other day I was at loss to make something different for breakfast. That’s when I came across orange creamsicle muffins!
