Cheesy Zucchini and Sun-Dried Tomato Scones |

This spring, my father-in-law planned and planted an absolutely awesome garden and it’s currently bursting with peppers, tomatoes, arugula, herbs and, of course… zucchini!

The blueberry muffin that arrived definitely came from a package, but my goodness, it totally hit the spot that morning. It could have been due to the fact that it was the first thing I had eaten in a day and a half that wasn’t ice chips, but it made me remember how much I absolutely love a good muffin.

While I’ve made chocolate-chocolate muffins before, I was still missing a chocolate chip muffin from my breakfast repertoire.
