Thanksgiving is in TWO days ya’ll. Someone please explain to me how this is even possible. 2020 has seemed to be the longest year ever but in other ways, also the shortest. Like, I feel as though just yesterday was the beginning of this pandemic and worldwide shutdown, and now it’s almost December? But on the other hand, I have a full blown toddler that will be turning two in a few months? What the actual f*ck. Time is weird this year. Speaking of time on an entirely different level, does anyone else struggle with what to eat for breakfast on the holidays? My family eats at 1:30 in the afternoon, so not quite lunch but not yet dinner either. That means breakfast is always a weird topic. Do I starve to death until 1pm or do I somehow overeat and become miserable? If this sounds like you, fear not, I’ve got you covered. I think I finally found my solution whether you’re looking for an easy grab and go, a delicious side to your bacon and eggs, or just simply trying to load up on sugar before a long day with your relatives. Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins.
Happy Saturday! Cheers to the weekend, am I right? And cheers to apples. I seriously love fall. Also, I’m FINALLY sharing with you some much anticipated apple recipes. Better late than never, right? Plus, I feel like apple butter is a true staple come fall season. It’s versatility is endless. Mixed in cocktails, atop toast, spread on muffins, fillings in cakes, the list goes on and on. When I was creating this recipe I wanted to make something that was simple and easy for people to make at home, while not having the stovetop on all day. Granted, you can definitely make this on the stove, but if you have an instant pot, your life will become a whole lot simpler. Like, I don’t think you are prepared for how simple this recipe is.
While I was packing and leaving for the trip I really wanted to post this one for you guys, but time just got away from me getting everything in order. None the less, I’m excited to be sharing it with you now because this is one of my FAVORITE fall recipes. Pumpkin Bread with Brown Sugar Crumble and Maple Butter. Heck yes. Guys. This pumpkin bread is like, the quintessential fall treat. It’s packed with pumpkin, full of warm spices, incredibly moist, and slightly crunchy with spiced brown sugar crumble. Also, the maple butter is an incredibly delicious bonus you didn’t know you needed. I wouldn’t skip out on it. Trust me on this one.
Bacon, Egg & Cheddar Biscuit Sammy. Good Morning and happy Sunday ya’ll! I don’t know about you guys but I am totally missing going to brunch during this pandemic. Sometimes I truly feel there is nothing better than a Sunday morning brunch. Or a brunch on any day for that matter. Hungover? Brunch. Cute photo op? Brunch. Don’t know what time or day it is? BRUNCH. Is “Brunching” a hobby? Because if it is, it’s probably one of my favorites.
I bet muffins originated when some kids mom wouldn’t let them eat cake for breakfast so they came up with absolutely genius idea to simply bake it a different way, omit the frosting and add a topping. I mean, pretty clever if you ask me. I’m totally down to eat cake any morning. Mornings suck.
I’m going to start this off with a full disclosure: I do not like scones. I think they’re dry and, frankly, overrated. That being said. These scones, these scones are GOOD. If you feel the same way I do (or did) you have to give these a try. We use this recipe daily in the kitchen. People absolutely LOVE them. And when I say love, that’s putting it lightly. People go nuts over these.
Happy Sunday morning ya’ll. Sunday’s are one of my favorite days. I feel like Sunday’s are meant for relaxing, reflecting on your weekend, mentally preparing yourself for the workweek, running errands, preparing a stupid good feast for family dinner, and depending on the season, a cozy day in watching football.
Sunday’s are just the best. You have no obligation or pressure to do anything. It’s literally the day you can do whatever you so choose.
So, of course, I chose to make these muffins. And let me tell you, I’m a happy camper, as is my neighbor whom I left a box outside their door for.
It’s the small things in life right?
