Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Share List I have been on a muffin kick lately.  I came up with a technique that produces those tall bakery-style jumbo muffins and I’ve been baking, testing and adapting recipes like mad. This blueberry muffin recipe uses yogurt instead of butter, which my cholesterol […]

Blackberry Muffins

Blackberry Muffins

Share List This is a keeper of a Blackberry Muffins Recipe for sure!  We are at the time of year around here where fruit is stupidly expensive.  $1.99 a lb for apples is higher than I’ve ever seen it.  Hopefully spring brings with it some […]

Cucumbers with Lemony Dressing

Cucumbers with Lemony Dressing

I love salads that don’t actually involve lettuce.  While lettuce is fine, it’s like a talisman to the fact that I’m actually dieting, which irritates me, so I pretend I don’t like it.  I’m always looking for something quick to throw together to make a non-lettuce salad to go with dinner.  I stumbled across this recipe from The Dinner Daily and adjusted it a bit for our tastes.

Whether you use cucumber, pour it on a zucchini noodle salad, pour it on a regular salad, or spoon a bit over blanched or roasted asparagus, this is really fresh and light.  You may be tempted to skip the salt and pepper, but that’s probably the most important part – it brings out the liquid in the veg, and salt counter-balances the sweet from the lemon and sugar.  you could substitute stevia in here if you wanted, easy peasy.

Finding your Happy Place

Finding your Happy Place

Yesterday our squad spent time together shooting clay – tons of fun and a gorgeous day.  This morning I sent the boys out the door and hunkered down on the couch for awhile to watch some food network.  I decided to hit the kitchen just as a text came in from Hubby – he and the Boy found their happy place!

It was kind of ironic that they found their spot just as I was stepping into the kitchen to find mine!

2 pans of Banana Nut Muffins – and a try of almond cookies later – I’m blogging and getting ready to fold laundry…laundry is not my happy place, but I guess we call it the “toll” to pay so I can spend more time in that happy place 🙂

Happy Sunday, Everyone
