Honey Nut Muffins With Oatmeal And Raisins

Let me start today with my deepest sympathy to all our friends up north who are getting slammed with snow!!! Just talked to my sister in New York who just came in from shoveling another 7 inches of snow out of her path to the car with more snow to come today and again on Thursday. She wanted to know if she could send some down to me and I said sure as we are having a rainy day here and I would much rather play in the snow :) She chuckled when I told her to have her son come down with his semi and an empty trailer and we would come up with the John Deere and get rid of it for her!
I guess I’m going to be baking a lot more now that Husband needs to eat in the morning with his meds and with his appetite not yet in full swing at o’dark thirty, I have been trying to keep something that will be easy for him to grab and enjoy with his coffee such as these muffins and the apple walnut bread that I posted recently. I have been trying not to indulge at that hour but when he warms something up, the aroma floating through the air gets my tummy to talking and I find that I too have been enjoying his new morning ritual, well at least until the pounds start piling on :( You can use any kind of nuts in these muffins and even use regular sugar if you prefer, but I like to use local honey in lieu of sugar if I can……….

Great snack anytime!

Brownie Pie With Walnut Crust

I have been meaning to add this recipe for two weeks now. It’s what I made husband for his b’day treat and it was so, so good! This recipe was in the 2015 Farmer’s Almanac and I believe it comes from a Comfort Food recipe book as it shows a picture of it. Of course we had it with some of our homemade vanilla ice cream and everyone enjoyed it to no end. One word of advice though, it is very, very rich so make sure your sweet tooth is ready, willing and able! I used a walnut pie crust made from scratch but you can use any crust you deem fit for this sweet and savory treat during the holidays, I think I’ll make little individual pies so I can give them away with some homemade cookies. I also want to try this recipe with pecans and butterscotch chips at that time and maybe a cream cheese pie crust, oh wow! I’ll give you an update at that time…………

Gimme a spoon!
