Wildflowers And Butterflies

9 Aug

Baked some delicious blueberry muffins. They were wonderful! I sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar before popping them in the oven. The smell was amazing. We ate them before they were fully cooled. Oh, these will be made again. I really enjoyed the hint of lemon. The muffins weren’t too dense, and not at all dry. Truly a great recipe. This weekend I will be baking an apple pie. Who doesn’t enjoy a slice of warm apple pie? I don’t know who’s more excited, Chris or Grace. Those two love my pies. My greatest joy is watching my feal enjoy something I’ve made from scratch. My next adventure will a be a dye-free red velvet cake. Chris has pointed out that it should be called a velvet cake, since it won’t be red. I’m determined to find the perfect birthday cake recipe. Something tells me a velvet cake is exactly what I’m looking for.

When Grace came home, we grabbed our cameras and headed outside. (After she ate a muffin, of course!) We walked around the yard taking pictures of flowers, bees and butterflies. Grace has really gotten into photography. She loves taking pictures of herself, the pups and anything she finds interesting. I love looking through the memory card after. It’s interesting to see what catches her eye. She picked flowers on our way back in, and put them in a vase. Grace read Judy Moody while I made us dinner. Orange chicken and white rice. That little girl had three helpings! Growth spurt! She won’t fit into any of her back-to-school clothes. Grace picked out a Captain Recycle shirt. Big surprise, right?

    I loved reading your blog, now I’m hungry for blueberry muffins!
    I was pretty successful with a Red Velvet recipe I located online, there are several entries in different blogs for Magnolia Bakery’s Red Velvet Cupcake. The recipes look to be all identical and I thought it tasted great. Here is one link on wordpress:http://wp.me/p6LT0-96. Good luck!
