Chocolate Chip Gingerbread Muffins with Cream Cheese Glaze

Chocolate Chip Gingerbread Muffins with Cream Cheese Glaze

This week is turning out to be another cold, rainy one.  Rain is the new snow for us, so I think it’s time I buy an umbrella. The last couple of times I’ve taken Owen to preschool have been impeccably timed with a down poor of rain. Which means, I hauled the baby, Miles, and Owen all into the school…in the pouring rain with no umbrella.  It’s hard enough without the rain, let alone getting soaked.

Last time we got hit by the torrential downpour, we hurried home, changed into warm clothes and I started baking. Muffins and hot cocoa were a must!
