Orange Cranberry Chocolate Muffins for a #FoodMemory Guest Post

If you haven’t already discovered the incredible blog Cake Duchess, you’re in for a treat today. I don’t know how I stumbled upon Lora’s beautiful space, but I’m so thankful I did. This lady knows good food but she also writes fantastically eloquent and heartfelt posts. The first post I ever read of hers was titled Sweet Orange Buns for the delicious treat that she had baked up for that day but more importantly, it dealt with the passing of her beloved father and the trip she made to Italy with her family to honour him. Seriously, I was in tears as I was reading it. Since then, I’ve been lucky to get to know Lora and my life is all the richer for it.

Lora started a series on her blog called Food Memories where she has different bloggers write about someone special who has left their lives and any food memories that we have tied to the dearly departed. Each post she has featured so far has really touched my heart and I’m honoured today to add to this series. I made these orange cranberry chocolate muffins for a very dear and special lady who left my life far too early. Click here to head over to Cake Duchess and read all about it.
