Scrambled Eggs with Guacamole & Salsa

I recently started making this deeelish brunch and highly recommend it as a deceptively easy but fancy looking (and tasty) brunch. You can vary it as you like in terms of the bread product, egg style, and any sides, but here’s my take (you’ll find the list of ingredients you’ll need for the whole shebang…

Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins!!

I can’t even begin to describe how sinfully delicious and moist these are. And just think, they have vegetables in them, so they must be good for you, right?
