Chocolate Cream Cheese Muffins

I've been really lax about my blog lately---been too busy.  The fall weather has been extraordinary.  I've done loads of gardening, had weekend visitors and I'm now enjoying pet-sitting.  Rana and Mark were out on the weekend for some cod-fishing, so Bailey stayed out to go back to the city with me on Thursday.  Here's a snap of Bailey---we've been taking lots of nice long walks and she also takes lots of nice long naps!!  Ha ha.

 Today is rainy and dull, so it's perfect for baking..............................


 These muffins are awesome--here's the recipe........

Chocolate-Cream Cheese Muffins

8oz             cream cheese
