The recipe can be found … Continue reading

Sunday, July 19, 2020 is National Ice Cream day, and what better way to celebrate than with some homemade ice cream! There really is no better time to enjoy ice cream than a hot summer day!  You can obviously eat ice cream year-round but it’s such a cool and refreshing treat during the warm months.  With so many flavors to choose from, you’ll be sure to find your favorite.  I wanted to do something different for National Ice Cream day so I’m celebrating by making homemade ice cream. I have 5 flavors to share with you today; 3 require an ice cream maker and 2 require a high-speed blender, so you don’t necessarily need all the fancy equipment to make homemade ice cream.  It can be super simple and require few ingredients or it can be a more complex recipe with a variety of ingredients.  Basically, you can put as … Continue reading

Mini Pancake Muffins are my new favorite breakfast treat!  They are both a pancake and muffin, so you get the best of both worlds.  Plus, they are mini / bite-sized pieces so you can enjoy a variety or all of the same kind, and not feel bad about how much you eat 🙂 The first recipe is for Mini Pancake Muffins.  These are essentially plain pancakes in mini muffin form.  The recipe makes 24 mini muffins, so I kept 8 plain flavored, made 8 chocolate chip flavored, and made 8 blueberry flavored.  I do have a sweet tooth, so the chocolate chip were my favorite but all tasted amazing! The recipe can be found here. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Spray a mini muffin pan (with 24 small wells) with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar.  This is the … Continue reading
