Blueberry Muffins

My favorite frozen fruit is the blueberry.  I could add those sweet little orbs to any and all baked goods or eat them straight from the freezer bag.  They don’t seem to lose anything by freezing, though, of course, they do tend to leak blue into everything.  When I needed a quick brunch snack the other day, I reached for the blueberries and made these delicious gluten-free, dairy-free blueberry muffins.

Christmas Tree Cinnamon Twists

Turn traditional cinnamon rolls into  memorable Christmas Tree Cinnamon Twists!Christmas Tree Cinnamon TwistsSo many of us serve cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning.  I thought it was just my family, but then I married into The Good Guy’s family and realized that it was a much more wide-spread tradition.   As I have grown older and talked with friends about their holidays, it seems like many people serve something sweet while presents are being opened.  So, after I found a photo of a Christmas tree shaped cinnamon roll with no directions, I set about fixing that problem.  This Christmas Tree Cinnamon Twist is sure to put smiles on everyone’s faces!

Apple Pie Granola: pecans, dried apples and cinnamon make this granola a special way to start the day.

In November, I cannot get enough apples.  I eat a fresh one topped with peanut butter every single day while they are in season.  I supplement that regiment with pies, crisps and cakes, but those are mostly for my family.   This year, I decided to add a little extra apple goodness to some homemade granola.  The resulting Apple Pie Granola is something I am going to enjoy all year round because it uses dried apples instead of fresh.

Waffle Sandwich Olè featuring Aunt Jemima Frozen Waffles, eggs, sausage, cheese and salsa butter #breakfastonthego #4morewaffles #shop

Sometimes I wish I could drive a little mini front loader into my kids bedrooms, scoop them up when their alarms go off and drop them onto the ground.  Nothing seems to wake them up!  Well, I take that back.  Second Son, who is a senior, gets himself up all by himself.  However, Third and Fourth Sons and lately, even Only Daughter, seem to have no ability to get up on time.  So we rush and rush through the morning with me calling out, “10 minutes!”  “5 minutes!”  “Your ride is here!”  “You are late…again!”  Thank goodness for Aunt Jemima frozen waffles, now with #4morewaffles.

Apple Cinnamon Cake

I have had this recipe  for Apple Cinnamon Cake printed out and ready to be made for years.  I saw this cake with globs of apple pie filling in the middle and it screamed “MAKE ME!!!”  Like many of you, however, I printed the recipe and then it slowly made its way into a pile and then to a shelf and then was forgotten.  Then recently, I made up some apple pie milkshakes (and no, there are no milkshake recipes here, sorry), but I only used about 2 Tbsp of a whole can of apple pie filling.  Suddenly, I remembered this cake.  I dug through a few files, found it, made the cake and then promptly lost the recipe.  Luckily, it was only yesterday and my memory extends that far.
