Blueberry Streusel Muffins

May 15, 2017 Carrie Hill 0

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 appreciates (except in the streusel topping, but that’s minimal.)  The family really likes them – even the boy, who says he doesnt like chunks of >> Get the Recipe!

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 new crops that bring our prices down.  Berries must be in season because they’ve been fairly reasonably priced, with blackberries at $.99 a 1/2 pt >> Get the Recipe!

Cucumbers with Lemony Dressing

Share List 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. >> Get the Recipe!

Share List I found a nice recipe for Cowboy Caviar but honestly – they make SO MUCH and I really didn’t need to have so much in my fridge.  I cut the recipe here and there and it still made quite a bit – great for a couple or small gathering. Hubby hates cilantro – so I made it optional here.  Use whatever bell pepper you have on hand, I >> Get the Recipe!

Easy Apple Crisp Recipe

Share List I found this recipe and modified it a bit, and although I think it’s VERY good – it feels weird to call it a “crisp” when it contains no oatmeal.  Apple crisp – growing up, anyway- always had oatmeal.   This recipe is great because it only takes 4 good size apples, 5 if they’re smallish – and cooks in an 8×8 pan – so its a good >> Get the Recipe!

Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa and Coconut Rice

Share List I have posted previously about my dislike for fruit and meat combos, and I’ll stick to that in MOST cases – but last night I made a mango salsa that was amazing with grilled chicken.  Coconut rice was the perfect accompaniment – its not overpowering, and it was really tasty on a piece of Naan Bread with the salsa and chicken. I bet this salsa would be good >> Get the Recipe!
