Buffalo Chicken Corn Chowder with Blue Cheese Gougères
I made this with one person in mind.
And that one person is four years old.
Of course right now would be the time she would jump in and say “Yeah Tiegy, but I’ll be five on August 30th”.
You guys, five years old.
Seriously, how in the heck did that happen. It seems like just yesterday I was fifteen and thinking about things like getting my learners permit and summer vacation ending. Okay fine, some of you may say it was just yesterday, but really time flies and my gosh I feel like a totally different person than my unconfident fifteen year old self.
I know I may still have a lot of life to live and lessons to learn, but I feel I have come a long way. I never would have thought back then that I would be through with school, writing a food blog and cooking my butt off day in and out.
It is still kind of crazy when I really sit and think about it.
But we’ll talk more about that another day. Today’s all about these muffins and my best friend heading off to her first day of kindergarten tomorrow.
And trust me, it is a full day.
School starts at 8:45am and goes all the way till 3:55pm.
Gesh, that’s a long day! Oh, but this one has no fear and no nerves. It’s all excitement!
Asher and I? Yeah, we could not be more different.
She is jumping out of her skin excited.
She has been counting down the days for weeks, picked out her prettiest first day outfit and packed up all her new and exciting school supplies in her new (and so cheesy) pink Barbie (yes Barbie) backpack.
Since you know I am her very favorite sister I thought I’d make her some muffins with her absolute favorite thing.
Seriously, is Nutella every kid’s favorite?
Oh and yeah, I am her only sister so she has no choice……and I like it that way! She’s got five brothers and everyday she has a different favorite. But everyday when I ask her who her favorite sister is it is always “Tiegy!”.
About these muffins.
Yes, they are whole wheat and yes, they are mixed with mashed banana and yes, they are also mixed with shredded zucchini. So yes, I am calling these a healthy after school snack.
But chocolate is a health food around here…….as I feel it should be everywhere, but to each their own!
The official taste tester LOVES these. In fact she has demanded I make them again.

For her entire class…. I guess it’s a good thing they are quick and easy!
Teighan would I be able to use 100% natural peanut butter here?
