I decided to revisit this recipe because of how much Grant and I still love it! I blogged about this a while ago, but it is still our go to pancake recipe, and I don’t think we will EVER go back! 🙂
I know I have been posting a lot of recipes lately,but baking and cooking is what I spend a lot of time on. Currently, I have been on a sewing streak ,since Grant is out of town for his training,working on my first ever coat. I am terrified that I will mess it up so I am making a muslin version to make sure it fits right before I spend too much money on expensive fabric and lining. Â As well as hemming and fixing lots of our clothes. Grant and I haven’t had a clothes budget in over 2 years now because we really didn’t need clothes; only problem is, after two years of constant wear things just start to wear out. Anyway, below is a great recipe for Cappuccino Muffins! This is a recipe that I got from my sister Tanya who is a great cook and baker! Honestly, I would rather just eat the batter because it is SOOO good, but the muffins baked are even better.
Growing up, I spent a lot of time at my friend Cara’s house. Her mom made homemade bread for the family every week. She even ground her own grains to make it worth the price. I love her regular bread a lot,but the cinnamon raisin swirl version was AMAZING! I finally was able to get her recipe, and I have made it twice for Grant, and there was never very much left. Below you can see step by step pictures and then the list of ingredients with all of the instructions. I hope you enjoy it!
This is a recipe that I have been making a LOT! I love having a warm breakfast, but it needs to be fast too. I eat at work and so normally it is instant oatmeal or a breakfast sandwich. I love cooked oatmeal better than instant, but as long as it isn’t cereal, I won’t complain. Some mornings I don’t mind cereal either, but something warm is great too. I got a free coupon for the McDonalds maple brown sugar oatmeal. I went and tried it, and of course it was great! The calories aren’t that bad, but it is knowing all of the extra bad stuff that they are putting in that makes me not want to eat it. Also, the price, I can buy everything and make a TON of them at home for much cheaper. So, I was on the hunt for a copy cat recipe and one that was doable at work.
Simon and Sarah have a very busy summer schedule. They go from Searcy to Dimebox to help my parents get some work done on their property, to Searcy for Sarah to take a class or two, to Dimebox, to Searcy again. This last time that they were in Dime Box, they came to visit us on the weekend. Grant and I try to be good hosts, but we just are kind of boring since we don’t like spending money very much.
I grew up eating this yeast raisin bread for part of my life. My aunt ,Irene, showed me how to make is when I was younger, and I am so grateful she did. I don’t make it as often as I should considering it is one of Grant’s favorite things. His family told me that before we were married or even dating he would hoard it and not share it with the rest of them whenever I made it. Yeast shouldn’t be as intimidating as some people make it out to be. This recipe is very easy and fun, I encourage you to make it yourself. I have also made it in the bread maker as well.
