Apple Muffins with Apple Cider Cream Cheese Glaze

Apple Muffins with Apple Cider Cream Cheese Glaze

I know I am the minority on this one, but pumpkin spice everything is not my favorite thing about fall. Although I do like pumpkin bread and chai tea, my fall obsession is apples. My daughters and I love apples so much we go through about 15 pounds of them every week! We try to make it to the local orchard at least once every fall. The kids love it! We have so much fun riding the hay ride, picking apples, drinking hot apple cider, and of course, eating apple cider doughnuts. We always end up bringing a couple of dozen home with us. I’ve tried to replicate those doughnuts many times without success. The recipes have been okay; I just haven’t found that perfect one yet. On my last attempt, the doughnuts were …

All opinions are mine alone. #EatLightEatRight #CollectiveBias I can eat soup anytime… it doesn’t matter what the weather is like outside, a piping hot bowl of Progresso® soup always hits the spot for me. It is a staple in my pantry; I stock up on all the amazing Progresso® Light varieties especially when they are on sale at Walmart. It’s a quick and easy meal that’s filling but low in calories. Perfect on those busy days when I don’t have a lot of time to make lunch. One day I had a major craving for my tortilla soup but I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand. I looked around my pantry to see what I could make and a light bulb went off. I …

Did you know August is National Sandwich Month? My family has been eating a lot of sandwiches this month. Not because we are celebrating National Sandwich Month, but because I haven’t had time to actually cook! “Mom! What’s for dinner?” “I’m working. Make a sandwich.” “Not sandwiches again!!” “It’s that or go hungry.” “UGH!!!!” Between work, back to school shopping, unpacking from our move, and my firstborn heading off to college, August has been one of the toughest months for me. The only reason …

I have a confession. I hate basketball. Well, hate is a strong word. I went to a couple of Knicks Games when I lived in the Northeast and enjoyed the live action, but I’d rather read tax code than watch the Final whatever of basketball. But I do love to entertain and if everyone else wants to gather here to watch the big game, who am I to interfere?!? I have a few go to munchies that I love to serve, …

Dinner in a Snap - Shrimp Tacos

Dinner in a Snap – Shrimp Tacos

Are you on SnapChat? I’ve been a holdout for a long time because… 1) I just didn’t “get it” and, 2) I was afraid I’d be bombarded with inappropriate snaps, lol. But after a fellow blogger gave me a few awesome tips on how to use SnapChat, I’ve become a little obsessed. More so watching other people’s snaps, but I’m getting better about posting. If you are interested in following me I’m @mym0mmybrain (the o is a zero). Anyhow… this whole discussion is coming about because I’m super excited about my new series called “Dinner in a Snap”! I will be posting quick dinner entrees via SnapChat. Hope you hop on over there and follow me (from your smart phone)… if SnapChat isn’t your thing, no worries! I will be posting …
