Apple Muffins

 

I had been craving muffins all day yesterday so I started looking around the kitchen and saw that I still had quite a few apples that the kids aren’t eating.  So then I went looking for a muffin recipe to try.  I found one on one of my favourite baking/cooking blogs. The Girl Who Ate Anything you can find the recipe that I started with here.

However like always I changed things up a bit and added about 1/2cup of milk to the mix and a dash of nutmeg with the cinnamon.  They turned out really good.

Christmas Baking 2012

 

This year I tried a new recipe for the annual Christmas baking exchange that is held for a crafting group that I belong to called Edmonton Crafters, it is a great group of woman from all over the city, some even come in from the outskirts.

Having made them for the exchange and then making 2 more batches for my hubby and kids.  The kids are impressed and asked that these make it to annual list of goodies that I bake.  I’m more then willing to add them.  You can find the recipe here.

I think that they look pretty good.

The Year is coming to an end

 

I’m having problems believing that the year is coming to an end already.  Not sure what happened, I remember my mother telling me that time would move faster as I got older but at the time I didn’t believe her.  Lesson learned.

I have been thinking the last 2 days about the upcoming year and what I want to accomplish.  Last year my goals got derailed and I didn’t realize any of them except my reading goal for the year which I exceeded.  Guess I spent too much time waiting.

So far I have 7 goals some of which will be easy and others may not be.

1 to get to the gym 3 times a week

2 to increase my water to 8 full glasses every day

3 to lose 30lbs

4 to write more

5 to read 70 books

6 to finish half of my WIPs

7 to make more of Christmas gifts for next year
