I make stuff up…

One of the things that I have enjoyed most about blogging is seeing what all of you are having for dinner and dessert.

I don't know about you but I get in such a rut. I like variety and love to try new recipes!

We all want our families to have healthy, delicious meals but after 14 years sometimes I just don't know what to make anymore. So thank you for letting me snoop in your kitchens and for giving me some great ideas!

I am making muffins for Micah's class tomorrow. I combined several recipes to make these:


2 Cups flour

½ Cup sugar

3 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. ground cloves

¼ tsp. nutmeg

½ tsp. salt

Combine in bowl

2 eggs

¾ Cup pumpkin

½ Cup melted butter

¼ Cup sour cream

Mix then add to flour mixture


1 – 8 oz. cream cheese

½ Cup sugar

1 egg

Beat together.

Fill greased muffin cups 1/3 full. Put spoonful of filling on top of muffin. Top with another spoonful of batter.(the filling doesn't need to be completely covered) Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.

And I also created these:



1 Tbsp butter

¼ Cup brown sugar

½ Cup flour

Combine and set aside


1 ¾ Cup sugar

3 eggs

1 Cup oil

2 Cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon

3 apples/peeled and diced

Beat together first 3 ingredients, then add dry ingredients. Stir in apples.

Place in muffin pan sprinkle with crumb topping and bake 30 minutes at 350.

Cool muffins for about 5 minutes then drizzle warm Carmel ice cream topping over top.(I prefer Mrs Robinson)

We call them Muffins so we can eat Cake for Breakfast right?!

By the way I am still not talking out loud very much….Thank you for your encouraging get well wishes!

My family is a little unsettled about the fact that I can't talk. Jason thinks I really could talk if I just put my mind to it. The kids are starting to tell me how they miss my voice.(Unbelievable!!I figured they would be relived I am not barking orders and making threats!)

I'd like to know….

  4. Oh no! Now after seeing these I am seriously considering taking a break from my diet to make them. Ok - not really (I am determined!) but these look scrumptious. I'll be keeping these in mind for later for sure.
