No mom enjoys hearing a child cough, even though pediatricians often remind parents that coughing is actually a good thing — it’s the body’s way of keeping the lungs clear and preventing pneumonia.

A breakfast treat sure to please!
We are definitely breakfast people at our house. Sometimes we may not eat it until 9:30 or 10, so maybe that makes it brunch, but I love this apple muffin recipe.

What you need:
- 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 ...
