Warning: This blog post is guaranteed to make you drool.
I wish that I could take credit for the amazingly mouth-watering pictures in this post but the truth is that it has very little to do with me. It's really just a matter of being in the right place at the right time and not so much perfected photography skills. God provided the most beautiful afternoon day and blessed me with a kitchen window that allows beautiful beams of sunlight to stream through the house. All I have to do is to put my dinner in that beautiful, God given light, and voila - perfect pictures.

Is your morning routine feeling stale and boring? Maybe these oatmeal muffins are just what you need to reawaken (hehehe) your morning meal. These are really good. My kids loved them just as much as Ben and I - that's when I know a recipe is really worth keeping.
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
8 Tablespoons butter
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/3 cups brown sugar
1 3/4 cups milk
2 eggs, beaten
Drizzle melted butter over mixture and stir to combine.
For the muffins: Grease muffin tin. Melt 2 Tablespoons butter in a skillet. Add oats and cook until golden brown. (6-8 minutes)
Remove muffins from tin and place on wire rack to cool.
These muffins are awesome.
I had mine with a tart cherry almond compound butter.
Shake up your breakfast routine with a batch of oatmeal muffins. Yummy and delicious.
I am stuck in an appetizer rut. I tend to make my favorite appetizer dishes over and over again. It's time for me to break out of my rut and start making some new and exciting bite sized food. I stumbled upon this recipe for Turkey, Apple, Gruyere Bites one afternoon when I was trying to come up with something to make myself for lunch. I put together these tiny little sandwiches with ingredients that I had on hand and it was such a satisfying and delicious lunch that I decided they would make a perfect appetizer as well. You can change up the meat or the cheese to make your own version of these mini baguette sandwiches. Lunch or appetizer - they're pretty darn good.
Turkey, Apple, Gruyere Bites
Sliced deli turkey
thin slices of granny smith apple
slices of Gruyere cheese
Place under the broiler to melt the cheese.
These make really yummy appetizers or in my case, a really yummy lunch. I you have a great appetizer recipe that you want me to try, send it to me. I'm always interested in hearing from my blog followers.
Comparing turkey burgers to beef burgers is kind of like comparing steak to chicken. Apples to oranges. There's no comparing the two - they are two completely different burgers.
Personally, I love a great turkey burger and I am always on the lookout for new turkey burger recipes. Ground turkey varies in fat content just like beef and using lean ground turkey breast in a burger can yield a very dry burger. I found this recipe for a zucchini burger on greenlitebites.com. What better way to keep a lean burger moist than to add grated zucchini? Genius idea Green Lite Bites.
Zucchini Turkey Burgers
20 oz Lean Ground Turkey
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
About 1 cup grated zucchini ~125g
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried parsley
Pinch of Kosher Salt and Pepper
Sometimes I have trouble keeping my burgers from falling apart on the grill so I put them in the freezer while I heated up the grill. (About 15 minutes.) Grill. I put them on the grill for about 8 minutes per side.
Serve them plain...
or with toppings.
Burgers never go out of season. They're good even at the end of February.
It's February and if you live in a warm climate like Atlanta, you have to make your own snow. It's not so bad really: no hats, no mittens, no boots, no shoveling and ... homemade snow tastes A LOT better than real snow. I made these melting snowmen cookies for my daughter's FCA meeting last month. They were a big hit.
Melt some white chocolate bark in the microwave.
Decorate the cookies before chocolate hardens.
Thank you pinterest and Better Homes and Gardens for this super cute winter cookie idea. It may not be snowing outside but it's a winter wonderland in my kitchen.
These were fun to make and even better to eat. A perfect activity for a cold winter day. (Or a mild winter day depending on where you live.)
