Blueberry Muffins

I found this simple Blueberry Muffin recipe in an old recipe book my precious grandma gave me in 1993. Wow!  When read aloud, that sounds like an eternity ago!  I suddenly feel antiquated....  These muffins are easy to whip up,  slightly sweet, light, and full of blueberries.  Perfect for breakfast on the go, after school snack or weekend brunch.

Black Bean Salsa

Who doesn't love snacking?  I know we do and we do it often!  There is just something about eating with hands. Hand reaches to chip, to salsa and dip, to veggies (a least one son's hand does) to hungry mouths that await anxiously.  Snack, snack, smack!  Yes, that was my boys! They tend to get a little overzealous with chips and snacks and anything they can make a loud, mouthy sound with.  I love my boys..but let's keep it quiet, okay?  This lip smacking Black Bean Salsa was just another noise in the bowl app, awaiting my hungry boys.  I adapted the recipe from a can of Bush's Best Black Beans!

Pumpkin Spice Dip with Maple Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice Waffle Dippers

I have mentioned it before and I'll say it again...I do not like pumpkin pie.  Yes, I know what you are thinking and just imagine I may nbe the only person that doesn't like it!  They was always made by my precious Mama and Grandma every holiday.  A huge dollop of cream on top and my, oh my, dear Daddy was a happy man!  I on the other hand, never inherited the love of pumpkin pie.  I do love pumpkin bread, cookies, muffins and now, this dip.  Just don't give me a slice Mama's pumpkin pie or I'll have to hurt feeling and not eat it. Check out this recipe on The Great Eggo Waffle Off!

Cranberry Apple Waffle Dumplings

My boys love to eat waffles!  When I don’t have time to make homemade, I pop Eggo Waffles in the toaster for their breakfast.   And Hey, did you know...Eggo Waffles also make great desserts, like these Cranberry Apple Waffle Dumplings!  A tiny bit of tartness, here and there, from the cranberries and apples that are mingled with spice infused sugary, syrupy, sticky greatness!  YES!  Oh, did I mention I entered this delicious recipe in The Great Eggo Waffle Off?  Here is the link to my Cranberry Apple Waffle Dumplings

My boys love cookies and one in particular, loves lemon.  As a special treat for a school snack, I made these Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies for him.  I made Molasses Cookies for my other two.

Biscuit Donuts

I remember as a child…watching my precious Mama as she stood at the stove cooking these sweet biscuit donuts.  A paper towel lined plate and brown lunch bags were close at hand.  The ingredients inside held different varieties of sweetness.  Powdered sugar, my favorite,  cinnamon and sugar, and plain ole granulated sugar could be found inside.

philly cream cheese

You love saving money, don’t you?  Yes, I knew you would.  I love to clip coupons and this .50 Philadelphia Cream Cheese coupon  ( for a 2 pack no less!) is a fantastic one to use at Walmart.   The two pack of philly cream cheese is a great price already and even more so when paired with the coupon.  Click, print and save.  And then, do it all over again.  Yes, you can print two coupons!  I did!  To view the digital coupon, you must be within a 5 mile radius of Walmart.  Not a big deal, you were going shopping anyway, right?

Very Chocolate Brownies

I made these for my son to share with his class for his birthday.  They are very chocolaty and moist and a Hit!  I adapted this recipe from an old clip I found for Baker’s One Bowl Brownies.

Triple Chocolate Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread

I went to Walmart the other morning, which isn't much different than most mornings, and took pictures documenting my time there.  Taking pictures along the way was so much fun and it didn't bother anyone in the least little bit...they all know us by name.  I'll share that in another post.  I ended up buying zucchini, Nestle Semi Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips, Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and more Cocoa.  This is the result of my shopping trip.  Are you thinking a trip is in order, now?

Orange Bran Muffins

My oldest twin loves oranges and anything made with them.  I wanted to make him something special since I have been with his twin, at the hospital, for three days.  We missed each other dearly.  This morning, we sat down and ate our Orange Bran Muffins, just the two of us.  ~smile~


Lemon Cake Mix Muffins

Both of the twins have been home the last two days and wanting muffins.   Yesterday, I made Orange Bran Muffins.  This morning it was Lemon Muffins made from a Cake Mix.  I made half just lemon and added blueberries to the rest. Try using different flavors of pudding mix, fruits and nuts, to make your favorite combinations or create something new.  They are easy to make and great to eat.  My older twin didn't even let them cool down before grabbing two and taking huge bites.   Enjoy!

Honey Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls

These are easy to fix even for a school day morning.  I made them this morning for my boys and still have plenty of time to do what I always do.  You know,  the things that were supposed to be done last night that were not for some unknown reason.  Kind of like “the dog ate my homework” kind of thing.  Get up and get moving! It's time to make a special breakfast for you little ones and big ones alike.

Canned Fruit Jello

Have you seen the jello made in a can of fruit?  It looked so good and reminded me of my sweet Mama's Green Jello Salad she would make.  You know, the one with nuts, pineapple, cream cheese in lime jello?  Yeah, that one.  I love that!  This is close to it.  Well, not really but the lime and pineapple remind me of it.  Use different fruit and jello combinations.  I'm going to use peaches and ....I don't know, whatever the boys pick out I suppose.  I had to use a large box of jello and it was too much for the can but my boys didn't mind one bit at all.  ~smile~

Chunky Banana Nut Dark Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Spice Cookies

Yes, you read it right!  These cookies are great!   At least my boys think so.   Dark chocolate, spices, bananas and nuts.  You can add dried fruit, too, if you wish.  With flax seed, wheat germ, wheat and soy flours, and of course oatmeal...what's not to love!   I bet you could even get away with eating these for breakfast, I did!

Cara Cara Orange Coffee Cake

If you have never tried Cara Cara Orange Coffee Cake, or any orange coffee cake for that matter, you need to!  It really is amazing!  Hubby thinks so, too.  I cut a piece to take a picture later, put it aside and went about cleaning the mess I made in the kitchen.  I am a messy one!  When the kitchen was clean,  I went to take the picture of my perfect little piece of Cara Cara Orange Coffee Cake and it was gone!  Geez, I thought after hubby ate three pieces, this piece would be safe.  No!  He ate it!  Hence, the photo below is not the perfect piece I wanted to take a picture of.  I had to take a picture in a hurry and hope for the best.  This is it in all its glory.  From now on, if I want to take a picture of something I'll snap away or I'll hide it!  Enjoy!
