these look exceedingly good (although your link has sent me back to your triple choc muffins and now I want some of both muffins). I was put off the organic vegetable delivery many years ago - some days I think I should give it another go so always like to hear others experiences!

OMG, those look divine. Did you use your microplane for the zest ;-)

I'm just off to do a batch of muffins now...

Jeanne @ CookSister!

Hmmm, do I detect the use of a certain new microplane for the zest? ;-) These look FANTASTIC, and coincidentally I must get offline now to go and whip up a batch of muffins :)

Jeanne @ CookSister!

Apologies for the double comment - first one didn't seem to show up... but I guess it did after all.

Lots of muffins floating around the internet this weekend - you're all making me hungry!

Yours look original and delicious.

These look amazing - particularly the frosting. What a creative way to use leftovers as well. Can I ask how many people you feed with your organic box? We are only two and eat out quite a bit so I just don't think we could get through the box.


we are 5, but in reality, it's just 3 eating... thing being that the small boys don't eat all that much.
my husband also takes some fruit to work.
but there are smaller boxes, the deluxe veg box also comes in small and so does the fruit box, plus you can opt to have one every two weeks only, if you wish, or pause for a week if you've got too much left over from last week's! that's why i love abel and cole, they're flexible like that!
do give it a try!


The organic box sounds great these days - it sounds like you're very well organised with it too. If I were in London, I'd definitely be doing that too. Here we only get organic when we grow them ourselves which is a bit sporadic or occasional selections of organic produce that make it into our local supermarket, but often stay on the shelf too long.

But we do get wonderful fresh oranges in season that haven't travelled too far, so they have plenty of vitamins left in them even though they aren't organic.


These look totally delectable! I don't own a muffin tin, but I will certainly be giving it a try in cake form.

I made these for a football party and they were great! I was a little uncertain about the dates, but yes...awesome! I huge hit. The lime frosting-nice touch!
