Make-Ahead Muffin Mix

I love a good muffin! But I’m not a big fan of the store-bought mixes.  Or maybe they’re not a fan of me.  Because whenever I make them, the muffins are teeny tiny.  Maybe I’m doing something wrong.  But when I think delicious breakfast muffin, […]

Shopping Trips – Harmons, Sprouts and Smith’s 7/22

I am not a morning person.  Especially on Saturdays. I am also not a big fan of grocery shopping (or really any shopping) on Saturdays.  I try to avoid it whenever possible.  Too many people, too crazy, too busy.  Especially if it involves going to […]
