Blueberry Maple Muffins

These tender muffins are sweetened with maple syrup and studded with wild blueberries.



Secret Recipe Club- Blueberry Maple Muffins



It's time for this month's Secret Recipe Club reveal! I love being part of a group of bloggers, who cook from one another's blogs and then blog about it. It's so exciting to learn about a new blogger every month! I really enjoy seeing who had my blog and to see what recipe they chose to make! It reminds me of how many great recipes are on my blog and makes me want to go back and make many of them again. This month I was assigned to the blog Baking and Creating with Avril. Avril is a blogger from New Hampshire, who loves to bake. Her blog also has tons of savory dishes that aren't too fancy and include step by step photos. She has been blogging for 5 yrs, and her blog is full with fantastic recipes I would like to try. 


I bookmarked several recipes from Avril's blog, this month, like her Caramel Swirled Apple Pear BreadEasy Sesame Chicken and Blueberry Pie Pancakes. As delicious as these recipe sounded, I decided to use up some wild blueberries I have in the freezer and make these Blueberry Maple Muffins. I am so glad I made these! The kids inhaled them, they were so good. They were moist and tender, and not very sweet due to the maple syrup.

Blueberry Maple Muffins

adapted from Baking and Creating with Avril


2 C flour

1 Tbs baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 C vanilla yogurt

1 C  maple syrup, divided

6 Tbs coconut oil, melted

2 eggs, room temperature

1 C blueberries (fresh or frozen)

2 Tbs flour

2 Tbs sugar



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12 well muffin tin and set aside. 


In a small bowl combine the blueberries with 2 Tbs flour and 2 Tbs sugar. Set aside.


In a large mixing bowl combine the vanilla yogurt, 3/4 C maple syrup, coconut oil and eggs; until well combined. 


In a separate bowl mix together 2 C flour, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until almost combined. Gently stir in the blueberries, until just combined.


Using a medium cookie scoop, or 1/4 C measure; fill each well of your muffin tin to 2/3 full. 


Bake for 20-25 minutes; until a toothpick inserted into the center of the largest muffin comes out clean. Remove from oven and brush the top of each muffin with the remaining 1/4 C maple syrup. Let cool 10 minutes, before removing to a wire rack. 


Once cooled completely, store in an air tight container for 3-4 days.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
