Apple Pie Muffins One Taste & You Are Hooked!

Posted on Updated on

A repost of a recipe I did last year!

Now that it is starting to cool down here on the Gulf Coast, I am starting to thingk about baking again.  I don’t know about you, but even with the air conditioning I don’t feel like baking too much.  Between the heat and the humidity, it gets kind of oppressive. We are back in the 80’s so it time to make some goodies again.

Here are my apple pie muffins.  These are favorites for Sunday breakfast.




In Illinois, my sister-in-law and I would go apple picking in August or September.  We would come back with bushel backs of them.  We would make everything from apple sauce to apple j…

Lemon poppyseed cake recipe

From The Hungry Mum!


This looks like a beautiful cake! The yellow of the crumb and dots of poppy seed. I especially love the crunchiness that the poppy seeds give to dishes. I am definitely making this for our weekend!

lemon poppyseed loaf cake

After a yet another raid on my mother-in-law’s lemon trees I knew a citrus cake would be in order. These lemons she grows are unlike anything I’ve ever bought: juice, plump and plenty of gorgeous flesh just begging to be grated into a sweet treat.

We have planted several citrus trees but they didn’t get the memo that they are actually meant to produce fruit. Instead they are barren, spindly looking things that need to have a long, hard look at themselves

This lemon poppyseed cake is always a hit, wherever it goes. I’ve made it many, many times and even non-cake eaters always want a slice.

I was inspired by the recipe in my beloved but now MIA cookbook Australian Women’s Weekly’s Quick Mix Cakes. Without this book I am bereft. I vaguely recall lending it to someone but I can’t recall who. If it was you, please boomerang…

Raspberry-Chocolate-Cake — FOOD & INSPIRATION

From Food & Inspiration!


I spent the weekend in San Antonio for an Optimist meeting.  Usually, when I go to these meetings, the food is somewhat uninspiring.  Especially for vegetarians!  Often when I ask for a vegetarian meal at a banquet, they bring me vegetables that have been steamed to mush!

I did get one thing that was wonderful this weekend.  A raspberry chocolate cheesecake.  A chocolate crust with the cheesecake that is lighter than a New York cheesecake.  And a drizzle of raspberry coulis.  Heaven!

When I saw this post, I thought that I would share to celebrate my favorite thing from my weekend!




Vienna the city of sweet dishes inspired me to create this sensational gluten free, lactose free and fodmap proved cake. Some work, but every bite worth.

From Fabulous Frugality!

When I was younger, my favorite treat was to get a chocolate shake and potato chips.  I just loved the taste combinations.

I saw this photo and said OMG!  This cookie has all of my favorite foods!  Chocolate.  Ice cream.  Pretzels.  You blend the bitter taste of chocolate with the sweetness of the ice cream and the saltiness of the pretzels and yum!  It took me back to my shake and chip days.  LOL!

Try this.  I think you might just like it.




A different twist on an ice cream sandwich that is easy to make for your next get together! I was watching Chopped on The Food Network and was inspired to see what dessert I could make with the ingredients I had on hand. I used a mix of toffee pretzels, a chocolate bar […]

Cranberry Nut Muffins Recipe

Posted on

About a year ago, I was in this muffin craze.  I was trying all kinds of muffin recipes.  Apple, banana, blueberry.  I even came up with some recipes for muffins that were low fat and low sugar for some of my friends who have diabetes.

I love them all.  They are fast and easy to make.  You can use bananas and apples or anything that is past their best used by date.  They are a winner for everyone!

This cranberry nut is one of my favorites!





Here is a new muffin recipe for you.  I have another cranberry nut muffin recipe, but had wanted to find one that has less sugar.  I found out that some of my friends have to watch that.  I found t…

Banana & Chocolate cake with a dark chocolate fudge frosting —

From 1000 Jars!

I don’t know about you, but I always have a bunch of ripe bananas.  Some are so ripe that they will be mush in their peels.  These are the best bananas for baking too!  Here is a great recipe that combines bananas and fudge frosting.  How much better can you get!





There is nothing I love more than finding overly ripe bananas in our fruit bowl. I know it might sound odd, but it is a rare occurrence in our household as we seem to get through bananas like there is no tomorrow! Instead of making a banana bread loaf, I decided to use them to […]

Gooey Chocolate Zucchini Brownies — A Kitchen Fable

Posted on

From A Kitchen Fable Blog!

I often wonder how to get my husband to eat zucchini.  I can get him to eat almost anything.  But for some reason, he will pick it out of dishes I server.  I think this might be the recipe to change that.   How can you pick zucchini out of a brownie?





I recently started using Pinterest, mainly because every time I see something interesting on the website this annoying pop up appears and I can’t see what caught my eye. So I made an account. I didn’t understand why people would take hours just pinning stuff, but now it all makes sense. I love putting everything in […]
