Berry Almond Crumble

  Summer temperatures have been out of control this year here in North Carolina! Truly out of control! And for me, when its too hot, I find that I want anything but chocolate to munch on. I know, I KNOW!! You’re probably thinking: Anything but chocolate?! Is this girl for real? *nods* Yes, yes I…

Autumn Muffins

Rainy day + Autumn temps + that cozy feeling caused by hoodies, blankets, and a hot beverage has got me feeling like: I originally made these delights a few weeks ago and they left my home smelling like an apple pumpkin chai. *sigh* It was ahhhmazingggg!! I wish my home could smell like that for…

Raspberry Cream Cheese Muffins

I went to Costco on Sunday. No surprise there as I LOVE Costco and they practically built one in my backyard!! Its the best place in the world. Well, that and Ikea! ❤ While meandering through the fruit aisles, I came across one of the last boxes of raspberries that had been on the pallet….

Blueberry Muffins

Mornings are my favorite time of the day.  A cup of coffee warming my hands, a sleepy puppy curled up at my feet, sunlight filtering through my windows while wind chimes faintly twinkle in the breeze; I love mornings. On this particular morning, I’m liking the sound of blueberries. Or, blueberries + sugar. Oh, blueberries…

Peachy Pecan Crisp

I can’t wait for autumn. It is absolutely my favorite season of the year. Sweaters, jackets, gloves, cute hats, and boots. State fairs, pumpkin everything, football games, and corn mazes. I am so excited!! This delightful Peachy Pecan Crisp tastes like autumn with its sweet crunch and heavenly smells. I’m so glad I found the original…
