Banana-Coconut Blueberry Muffins | Attempt II

The flavour of these are amazing.  They are so moist and have an abundance of juicy blueberries in them. However, I seem to have lost some of the “muffin” quality.  Despite reducing the amount of yogurt,  somehow these were still extremely moist.  So moist that I could not safely store them on the counter, because… Continue reading Banana-Coconut Blueberry Muffins | Attempt II

Peach Salsa and Fish Tacos

Peach salsa. I finally made it! Too bad the peaches were not quite ripe enough yet.  Otherwise, it was all delicious.  I bought and used a fresh jalapeno pepper for the first time…and even splurged on fresh cilantro.  (The poor college kid in me is still alive and thriving, despite finally being graduated and having… Continue reading Peach Salsa and Fish Tacos

Yogurt Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

To improve the fluffiness of the muffin, I used greek yogurt instead of regular yogurt (which reduced the amount of liquid in the batter) and omitted the milk altogether.  I also whipped the egg whites and… Continue reading Yogurt Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Haunted Kitchen Chairs

Our kitchen chairs may be haunted. Ok, honestly, I do not believe in ghosts or anything of the sort, but it is fun to say that our kitchen chairs (or at least 2 of them) are haunted.  Why would I say such a thing? Well, as you know, we are in the process of trying… Continue reading Haunted Kitchen Chairs
