My Recent New Favorites

I love it when people find a great product and then share it with me!  So let me do the same favor for you on this Friday post! All these products are under $10 and most are way under that!

  1. Izzio Half Bread Loaves – Recently my mom told me about half loaves of bread she’d purchased at Kroger.  Since there are only two people that live at our house now, it can take a while to finish a loaf of bread.  Eight pieces is perfect!  Also, each slice has only 15 grams of carbs, which is close to half the amount of most breads!  But the real reason I love these breads is because they’re delicious!!  This sour dough is so good toasted in the morning!

My New Favorite Blueberry Muffin

I love muffins.  Okay, I love any kind of bread, but muffins are just magical, are they not?  You can eat them for breakfast, which is like having cake first thing in the morning!  What’s not to love about that?!

I have several Blueberry muffin recipes in my recipe index, but I’m adding another because these were just too good not to share with you!  I have a love for all the recipes from King Arthur.  They know how to do bread (n and everything other baked thing)!!  I found this recipe for Blueberry Muffins while looking at their Instagram account and I knew I had to give them a try.  If you love crispy edges, moist, fluffy insides and a full blueberry flavor, you’re gonna love these, too!

This has been a super-busy summer including lots of travel and time  away from home. However, on a recent and treasured day at home, I had the opportunity to really dig in and freshen things up around our house.  Oh my, it felt as good as getting the suitcases completely unpacked after vacation!

I find that when life gets busy, there are things that get done hastily, causing disorganization or carelessness to step in.  Here are a few areas that I took care of that might inspire you to freshen things up a bit on this Friday!

The Greatest Responsibility of a Parent

Parents have a huge role to play.  From provider, protector, and nourisher, we know that we are the ones who will help our children grow up to be healthy, responsible, wise adults.  But if we stop there, we are missing the most important role we play in their lives.  There’s something even more valuable than teaching them to share and be kind.  Continue reading “The Greatest Responsibility of a Parent”

6 Tips for Keeping a Clean Kitchen While Cooking

I knew a woman who hated to cook, and one day after spending time with her in her kitchen, it was made clear to me one reason she disliked this duty – her kitchen turned into a war zone while she was working.  Then after the meal was over, she had to go back into the destruction and spend lots of time cleaning, organizing and putting things away.   Continue reading “6 Tips for Keeping a Clean Kitchen While Cooking”
