Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins

Yesterday I made Penne Pasta with home-made blueberry muffins.  I realized I didn’t give the recipe yet for the muffins so I wanted to do that today.

Bluberry Muffins

They almost looked burnt, but they aren’t.  They are moist and delicious!  Just add some butter and enjoy!

Blueberry Muffins

Today I had dinner all done by 12:00!  What a great feeling to know it wasn’t hanging over me!  I made home-made blueberry muffins, tossed salad and a crock pot of beef barley soup.  Everything was ready for us when we all got in the door from our separate ways….work, ballet and orthodontist appointments!

The blueberry muffins were a hit with no left overs!  We were fighting over the last three! Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
1 stick butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
2 Eggs, large
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp cinnamon, for topping
2 tbsp sugar, for topping

Dough Ornament Recipe

As kids, my sister and I would make dough ornaments and then paint them.  I LOVED that!  I think I still have a few hanging around for the Christmas tree (and it’s been a few years!! :)).  If you want something fun to do with the kids, try this recipe out.  They would make great home-made Christmas gifts too!  Here’s the recipe:

4 cups of flour

1 cup of salt

1 1/2 cups of lukewarm water

Directions:

Mix flour and salt.

Slowly add the water.

Roll out and use cookie cutters to make desired shapes.  Don’t forget to put a whole in the top if you want to hang on the tree!  A straw will work good to make the hole.

Bake at 325 for about 1 hour.

Take out and cool before decorating with glitter paint, glitter glue or whatever you want to make them pretty!!

Ps.  They look like real edible cookies!  Let the kids know they would taste awful!!!  🙂

Apple Torte

Well, today is Wednesday and tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  I guess I need to run to the grocery store!  Actually, I only need a couple of things.  🙂  Yesterday was busy with me taking my oldest to her co-op classes, doing school with the other three, exercising, piano lessons (at our house, which is SUCH a time saver and definitely worth the little extra $) and getting ready for my 12 year old’s Nutcracker performance.  She had to be downtown at the Opera House for Tech Rehearsal/costume fitting at 4:30 until 9:00 and I was helping out, so we had to gather everything she needed into a bag, like makeup, extra tights, hairspray (which I didn’t realize we were out of until then….too late…..hence one reason for having to run to the store today!), curling iron…etc.  We then ran out the door and had a fun, tiring evening!  AND….we get to do it again tonight!  It’s all fun and exciting though!  She is super excited to perform with professionals on a big stage!  She is an angel and her costume is beautiful.

On to a recipe!  I usually make another dish, specifically for my father-in-law because he loves it, for Thanksgiving, which I didn’t think about until last night!  This is a super easy recipe for an apple torte.  In no time at all, you have a sweet, piping hot, apple delight….add some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream (or both) and it’s a delicious treat!

Here’s the recipe:

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

2/3 cup flour

1/2 tsp. salt

Beat it all together and add 2 cups of diced apples, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 to 1 cup of chopped nuts (if desired)

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes

Corn Bread

What goes best with a big, steamy bowl of Chili?  A moist piece of corn bread!  A couple of month ago I put together two bags of corn meal mix and froze them.  I combined all the dry ingredients, sealed them in a Zip lock bag and placed in the freezer.  Don’t forget to mark the outside of the bag with the title and date.  I made Chili about a month ago and took a bag of the dry ingredients out of the freezer, immediately added the wet ingredients and baked it.  I didn’t think it turned out too well because it crumbled too easily (maybe I overcooked it, but not sure), so this time I took the dry ingredients out and let them get to room temperature.  I will see if they turn out less crumbly.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
3/4 cup corn meal
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Notes / Directions
Preheat oven to 400. Grease 8 or 9 inch round pan. Blend all dry ingredients. Stir in remaining ingredients until moist. Bake 20-25 minutes.
Have a great day and don’t forget to check me out on Pinterest!
