Raisin Bran Muffins (Six Week Muffins) Yes! I Said Six Weeks!

Hi friends ! I’m popping back in, quickly, between gardening and baking duties to share one of my family’s favorite recipes. I know, back again so soon? I’ve actually been trying to get this recipe up for awhile but really wanted to finish it up for you now, because this is the perfect weather for these muffins. 

This is an adaptation of a recipe from my Mother’s church Ladies guild!  They all got together, about 40 years ago and put together a fundraising cookbook of their favorite, tried and true recipes. Isn’t that awesome?!  Big win all the way around

A Belated Happy 2024 and What’s Been Keeping Me Busy

 Hi friends! Happy New Year. I have missed you all so much. I couldn’t let January go by without wishing you all a very happy New Year and sharing a little bit about my life since we last met.  Life has been very busy, but there has also been plenty of Joy. I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday season and are looking forward to this New Year that we are in. I will never get used to us being in the 2000s!

The Garden’s Coming Alive and the TFT Party

Good morning friends and welcome back. Before we get on with the party I just have to share!  If you’ve ever worked on growing a garden from seed from late January to Spring, you’ll understand my excitement and pride in sharing this photo with you all!

My first fruit of the season! This specific one is a Barry’s Crazy Cherry heirloom tomato and there are at least 20 more!
When they come in fully, they look like this!
Okay, now that I’ve shared my excitement, let’s look at some of what you shared last week.
