I just received my new silicone cupcake / muffin molds in the mail and could not wait to give them a try. Silicone baking sheets or pretty much silicone anything has become my best friend in the kitchen. I mean it's super easy to clean and use, and absolutely non stick which means no adding extra grease and oil when baking, and it's reusable! I highly recommend. Anyway, these slightly lemon-y blueberry muffins were my guinea pig recipe to test these molds out and not only did I love the molds and how easy the baking process was, but we absolutely LOVED the way these muffins turned out. I'm a huge fan of lemon in desserts, but I know it's not for everyone. so I did a just slightly added lemon version of a classic blueberry muffin for a little twist of flavor everyone can enjoy. Next time around I'll be ramping the lemon up :), so lemon lovers, stay tuned! I used blueberry yogurt to make these nice and moist, which I love because it made these muffins almost cake like which made them not only a perfect breakfast, but a yummy dessert as well. I love a good "fluffy" muffin as much as the next person, but sometimes I just have to switch it up! Think Nothing Bundt Cake, in muffin form & sans the glaze. Seriously so yummy! I hope you enjoy!
hi y'all! This smoothie recipe is the result of another fun recipe swap club challenge. If you haven't followed along with my swap posts in the past it is a food blogger network where I am challenged monthly to recreate a recipe from a fellow foodie and give it a try. I have so much fun with this each month because it gives me new inspiration and recipes to write up for you that I may not have gotten to otherwise! This month I worked from Simply Made Recipes, a blog written by a husband and wife duo who love to cook together and work to bring their audience easy and affordable recipes and decided to give their protein packed strawberry vanilla smoothie a try.
These savory breakfast muffins are the product of another delicious and successful recipe swap club month. This month I worked from EAT what we EAT which is a great blog highlighting recipes that are easy, and family friendly. I chose to make their breakfast muffin recipe for two reasons. One, because the latest breakfast post I did has been a total hit, I mean y'all seem to really love breakfast! Two, because they looked downright delicious, I mean c'mon who doesn't love a good cheesy breakfast?! I made these up on Superbowl Sunday for a pre-game brunch and they were a total hit. Another great bonus? They are super easy, like anyone can do this easy. You brown up some sausage, mix in some pancake mix and eggs, and then load them up with cheese and let the oven do the cookin'. Are you sold yet? Let's get to it!
Yes, that's right, I said overnight breakfast. You know what that means? You get to wake up, pop this in the oven & serve a great breakfast with zero morning time prep work. It is so easy to put this together the day or night before you want to bake it and get all your prep work and dishes out of the way so you can just enjoy your morning. I particularly love this recipe for holiday mornings. You've got enough to worry about on holidays like focusing on your main meal of the day and spending time with family so anything you can do the day before is always helpful! I also love overnight breakfasts because let's be honest, if you're having any sort of party out or at your house, a stress free comfort food breakfast will be real nice to wake up to, especially if you had one too many cocktails the night before. Whatever your occassion this is sure to be a family favorite.... I mean what's not too love about cheesy egg & potato all combined together?!
Energy bites have become a staple snack I almost always keep on hand. They take only a few minutes to make, are so yummy, and are perfect for a grab and go snack for busy days. As fall rolled around this year and everyone was talking pumpkin spice this pumpkin spice that I decided to give a pumpkin spice twist to the classic peanut butter energy bite recipe I love. The pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice added to this version is so yummy. I also added chocolate chips, because there is always room for chocolate chips in an energy bite recipe! Enjoy!
After making the chocolate peanut butter version of these a couple weeks ago I couldn't wait to try a different combo and make no bake energy bites again. You guys loved them, everyone who got to eat them loved them, I loved them, and they take me 10 minutes to make! I mean seriously, I whipped these up while getting ready for the work day this morning and brought them in for a snack same day. Easy, quick, and packed with good nutrients... what more could you ask for in a snack recipe. These are only four ingredients and are loaded with omega-3s from the flaxseed, protein, and fiber!
