Running: Week 4

Running:  Week 4

Eeek! I forgot to publish my running post last week, so you’ll be getting 2 posts on my progress this week. I’m so sorry, y’all, but life got a bit hectic, and my organizational skills have been lacking (no surprise, there). I’m not going to tell a lie. Nope, I just can’t do it....

Peach Butter Muffins

Peach Butter Muffins-4271

It’s Monday, which means it’s time to celebrate with muffins for #MuffinMonday. We were given an orange marmalade muffin recipe this week, and I adapted the recipe so I could use my homemade peach butter that I made last week. These muffins are moist, and they’re extra delicious when you slather them with butter...

I love peaches! I want to shout it from the roof top… I. Love. Peaches! Summer is nearing its end, which means peaches are nearing their end, too. I hate to admit that peach season is almost over, but I have to come to terms with it. The fear of not having fresh peaches...

I’m busting out the cone hats, the party horns, the goodie bags, the party streamers, and the birthday balloons on the blog today. Why such a festive celebration? Well, today is one of my very best foodie friend’s (BFF) birthday. Happy birthday, Jen from Juanita’s Cocina! *Horn blowing* Jen may be in Texas, but...

Espresso Chocolate Mousse-4145

Happy 100th birthday, Julia Child! When I found out Julia Child was turning 100, I knew I had to celebrate by making a dish from one of her cookbooks. She deserves something special for her birthday, so I chose a variation of her rich, decadent Mousseline Au Chocolat. Julia inspired the world to take...

Running: Week 3

Running:  Week 3

Here’s what I’ve learned about running: It’s hard at first. You’re not going to take down a 5k on your first day. It’s just not going to happen. Period. However, with a little patience and practice, you can build yourself up to have speed racer stamina. You have to start off as the tortoise...

Blueberry Cinnamon Chip Muffins

Happy #MuffinMonday, y’all! I’m very excited about this week’s muffin recipe. I made blueberry cinnamon chip muffins, and they are AMAZING! I have a feeling that this recipe is going to become my go-to muffin recipe. They’re the perfect combination of moist, cakey center and crispy, crunchy crust. Absolute perfection. Why, hello there muffin....

I feel like the school year just ended, and now it’s almost time to do it all over again. Ugh! I start the fall semester on August...
