Million Dollar Blueberry Muffins

Alright friends,

I debated sharing this recipe because it's SO amazing that I could have become incredibly wealthy by starting up my own blueberry muffin shop and selling just these :-)  I knew that once the recipe got out on the World Wide Web my dream could be over - nothing is secret on the internet - nothing :-)

But then I realized that I'm not that type of person, I share good things - hee,hee.



I got this typed recipe from my daughter's highschool Home Ec class.  Actually, I haven't made these myself, but my daughter has baked them many times as people have even told her they will pay her if she makes them a dozen. These muffins are SO moist with perfect texture and the crumble topping makes them irresistible!

Once you try these, you will understand why people pay her AND thank me for not holding on to the family dream of Selina's Blueberry Muffin Coffee Shop (that was going to make millions with this amazing recipe that I was going to keep all to myself) ;-)


Inspirational Covered Porches with Fireplaces.

Well it has FINALLY started to warm up over here in Idaho.   There are buds starting on all the trees and I am not sure I should admit but I laid down on the front pavers and just absorbed all the sun's warmth on our first "hot" day.  I am pretty sure I should retire somewhere really warm as it makes me so happy. (Or I suppose I could just go on a trip to the tropics, that would make me happy too) ;-)


Being that I am gearing up for summer, I thought it would be fun to show you some awesome outdoor patio rooms.

Get ready to be inspired!

First, I LOVE this porch with the build in fireplace.  I wrote a whole article about decorating with lanterns and what the best classic accessories are to use in your home.

Top Overnight Oat Breakfasts Recipes You Will Want to TRY!

Hi Friends!

Has anyone else noticed that the overnight oat breakfast is a HUGE craze!  Have any of you tried them?

I thought I would give it a shot and was PLEASANTLY surprised at how yummy they tasted. I am a big fan of eating my breakfasts.  I feel it ramps up my metabolism :-)

There are so many variations on making overnight or refrigerator oats but here are some of my favorites.  Sometimes I'll make a giant batch and put them in individual serving containers.  It's so nice to just pull one out the evening before for when you need a healthy breakfast FAST!



Pumpkin Pie Oats Breakfast

Recipe - Individual Serving:
1/2 cup of raw (uncooked) oats.
3/4 cup egg whites (from a carton)
1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree (from can is fine)
1/2 Tbsp chia seeds
Either 7 drops of liquid Vanilla Stevia or 1/4 tsp White Stevia Powder
Cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice
Stir and let sit overnight or at least an hour in the refrigerator - ENJOY!


Nutritional info: 339 calories / 28g protein / 42 carbs /10 fat and 12 fiber
NOW, before you guys freak out on me (like I did my friend when she first had me eat her chocolate version of this) but egg whites from the carton are pasteurized and totally safe to eat raw. :-)  Believe me, I researched it as I wasn't convinced at first :-) 

I added a blob of plain non fat greek yogurt - mostly just for the picture :-)




Creamy Pumpkin Pie Oats

Recipe - makes 4 one cup servings

2 cups unsweetened almond, coconut or flax milk 
1- 15 oz can pumpkin 
3/4 cup nonfat greek yogurt

Splash of vanilla
25 drops of liquid Vanilla Stevia or 1-2 tsp White Stevia Powder (or till tastes right for you!)
Cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice till it tastes right

With all of these recipes - you can feel free to add a pinch of salt.

Nutritional info for one serving: (approx) 266 calories/ 24 protein/ 31.4 carbs/ 5.2 fat

Stir till well combined and divide one cup servings into any container (glass mason jars work fine) You can freeze or put in your refrigerator to eat soon!  



Yes, that is whip cream :-)  I guess I'm not so healthy after all - hee,hee!
