• Gingerbread Muffins

    It is Gingerbread season and I am 100% jumping into it!  First recipe is muffins… nothing like waking up to the hint of gingerbread in the air. Let’s get gingerbread spicy! The secret to anything gingerbread is the spice blend.  Too much ginger and it can be too spicy, too much cinnamon and it drowns everything else out.  Too many cloves and you can’t taste anything else, it is all about balance.   These muffins have the perfect balance of spice and will be the perfect Holiday treat. A little extra crunch… For me a good muffin is tender, moist and full of flavor.  A GREAT muffin has a fun…

  • Cranberry Crumb Muffins – A Fall Must

    Cranberry Crumb Muffins are a new favorite of mine… yes a FAVORITE!!  Trust me when you try these you will love them too! It is Cranberry Season! I am a big, big cranberry fan.  I love dried one, fresh ones, frozen ones, cranberries in drinks, cranberries in bread, muffins, cookies.  Really in most anything.  I just love cranberries. I love the tartness but also the hint of sweet in each bite.  They add just the right little something that makes everything you put them in a little more special.  And yes, you can use cranberries in more than just the sauce at Thanksgiving.  So Much Cranberry! For this recipe I…

  • Pumpkin Crumb Muffin

    It’s Pumpkin Crumb Muffin Time, Y’all!  I know it is still August, but y’all I am all about pumpkin spice everything…and these muffins are the perfect kick-off to my pumpkin obsession! Just enough spice… The thing I love most about pumpkin spice is the combo of the spices.  There is a little cinnamon, some clove, some ginger, not too much of any one spice and not too little…it really is the perfect combo.  Pumpkin spice makes me feel all warm and cozy inside, just soooo happy. These muffins have pumpkin not only int he batter but also in the topping but don’t worry it is not over powering…it is just…

  • KETO Pumpkin Muffins

    Muffins are my weakness…especially pumpkin muffins.  One of my biggest fears when I went on KETO was I would have to give up my muffins, I mean they are normally not low carb.  Thankfully that fear was put to rest with these AMAZING KETO Pumpkin Muffins. The Swirl is EVERYTHING It is no secret that I am all about anything and everything pumpkin spice.  As much as I love a good plain pumpkin muffin to make these a little extra special I added a cream cheese swirl to the top.  Isn’t just about anything better with a little cream cheese swirl? I kept it super simple with just cream cheese,…

  • Pumpkin Spice is back people!!

    As the country celebrates the promise of Fall, here in SE Texas we are recovering from Hurricane Harvey   Thankfully my family is safe and dry but so many others around us are not.  If you want to help support to disaster relief you can donate here or to the American Red Cross.  Anything you can give will be used to help bless a family. Today is one of my most favorite days of the year.   PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE is back at Starbucks.   Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice Anything and everything pumpkin is all I can think about when September comes along.  I love to decorate with pumpkins and I love to…

  • Triple the Berries…Triple the Yummy

    I cannot get over all the beautiful berries that bursting at my local grocery store and farmers market.  It seems everytime I go to the store I cannot help but buy several…they just look that good. What to do with all these berries? As much as I can’t resist the berries I now have to figure out what to do with all of them.  First I made my Berry Smoothie, and then I put some on ice cream.  Next I made my Berry Tart and then I just ate them on their own.  I used a lot of them but there was still some left…so what could I do next?…

  • Refrigerator Bran Muffins

    Ok so I have an obsession I need to let everybody know about.  I am obsessed with these Refrigerator Bran Muffins!!  I mean OBSESSED!! Just let it chill One of the best parts about this recipe is the fact that once you make it and then let it chill in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks.  The recipe makes a lot of batter.  I mean a TON of batter meaning you can have warm muffins anytime you want. And I do mean ANYTIME.  I have been known to make a few of them at 9:00 at night, just because I want one…remember I told you I am OBSESSED. Little or…

  • THE BEST EVER…cornbread that is

    Cornbread is one of those recipes that I seem to have a 1000 recipes for.  Some sweeter than others, some super savory, some spicy, and even some with bacon but this recipe will be my go to recipe from here on out.   Sweet or Savory I grew up with a more savory cornbread and was not really introduced to sweet cornbread until I was in high school and I immediately fell in love, but still went back to a savory cornbread recipe when I would make it.  But over the years I find myself going back to the sweeter side of cornbread…and this recipe is the BEST! A treat…

  • It’s a muffin puff kinda morning…

    I do not have enough words in my vocabulary to tell you all how much I love these muffin puffs.  Yes, you read that right, I am in LOVE with a little treat we call a muffin puff.  Trust me they are as cute as they sounds and as yummy as they look. What is a puff? Simply put it is a cross between a muffin and donut hole, but there is nothing simple about these bites. First, they are easy to make like muffins.  Mix everything together and then bake it off in cute mini muffin pans.  I LOVE mini muffin pans.  Don’t you?  Some of the best bites…

  • Pumpkin in the morning

    Hello Fall…you know what that means…it is PUMPKIN time!! I have to say the beginning of Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  Bring on the pumpkins, yummy foods and cooler weather!! A match made in pumpkin heaven… Over the next few months you will see pumpkin recipes everywhere, for everything so I thought why not start with the first meal of the day…MUFFINS (I mean breakfast)!  I love pumpkin bread for sure but pumpkin muffins are my favorite.  They are even better when loaded with cream cheese and chocolate. If you frequent starbucks (like I do) I am sure you have seen their pumpkin bread, cookies, scones and…
