On Sunday evening, when Michael turned on the NBA Playoffs, I went to the kitchen and mixed these up. They looked like an easy weekday breakfast, and let’s face it, I skip breakfast all the time. Or I eat a granola bar during my morning work break and call that a meal. It’s not a meal, though. These are, though! Continue reading “On The Go Oatmeal Cups”
I’m so addicted to english muffins. If I buy a package, I end up eating them all within the week. Once they’re toasted and smeared with peanut butter, honey or jam, I cannot resist. They’re the perfect snack or breakfast! They’re so good, yet too expensive for my tastes. I’ve been searching for the perfect recipe for awhile now, and this one is really simple. I love it when I have all the ingredients at home!
I use Pinterest as a tool for finding new recipes, mostly. I can’t make a recipe unless I can see a picture of it, so Pinterest is like a lovely internet image search of fabulous recipes. Naturally, of the many I try, not all are winners. I adjust recipes all the time to suit what I have on hand or my personal preferences. I know I haven’t been blogging for very long (not on a consistent basis, at least), but here are my 10 favorite Pinterest recipes that I tried and enjoyed so much that I blogged about them! Follow me on Pinterest and I’ll let you know what recipes are actually worth making!

We all get along great and I love spending time with them. My sister, Amy, is closest in age to me and we did everything together growing up. It was like having a built-in best friend for life, and luckily that’s still true! We both had a Friday off recently, so I went to visit her and we just hung out for most of the day. Then we made these muffins that I’d been dying to try ever since I saw them on Pinterest.
These are really tasty and come together so quickly! The berries are tart and the chocolate’s sweetness balances the tartness out perfectly. This recipe is a great muffin base that can be adjusted to your flavor preferences. I recently used it to make black raspberry muffins using frozen black raspberries. I made these with a pint of fresh raspberries. I stored the muffins in the fridge because I never have any luck leaving food made with fresh fruit out. Continue reading “Chocolate Raspberry Muffins”
