Fathers Who Harm

Father's Day has become a more highlighted day of celebration than when I was a child. My father was born in 1927 and lived a pretty long life: he died in 2013, a few months into his 86th year. He was not a bad father. He did struggle with alcohol addiction and was imperfect in other ways, but he was basically loving and kind.

It makes 10-12 muffins, depending on the size of your muffin cups.  INGREDIENTS: 1 1/4 cup (300 ml)         non-dairy milk 1/4 cup    (60 ml)           extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon (22
