Blueberry and Oatmeal Muffins

The Blueberry and Oatmeal Muffins from Finger Pricking Good recipe turned out really well. Our house was turned upside down this week as we prepare for (unexpected) major foundation repairs this coming week. This meant I didn’t end up making anything snack-wise for the week until Saturday. Ah well. At least the recipe turned out fantastic and I have a lot of tasty muffins to share with those helping with all the dog sitting that’s needed this coming week while we have contractors over.

Here are some photos of this tasty recipe’s results!

Tasty tasty muffins

 

I typically would use frozen blueberries for baked goods, but fresh ones were on sale and really popped in your mouth in a way frozen ones would not, so be careful if you end up eating them hot out of the oven!

In the spirit of streamlining our activities for a stressful week, my sister Keely will be contributing her meal plan this week so I don’t have to prepare one, so stay tuned for that in a little bit!

Italian Ricotta Cookies

These cookies smell divine, and their taste is not too far from that either. The Italian Ricotta Cookies from Love Bakes Good Cakes were relatively easy to make although I did end up cooking them for twice as long as was recommended, and they didn’t taste overcooked either. I made 47 of them so co-workers, hope you are ready for some fluffy and delicious snacks!

Here are a couple photos:

That moment when you realize you’ll need to vacuum the counter clean before wiping it clean…

Carrot Oatmeal Cookies

Taste: 5/5
Ease of Making: 3/5
Dishes: 2/5

This recipe is taken from yummyhealthyeasy.com. It appealed to me because:

  • I like to incorporate vegetables into my baking
  • I had an entire bag of quick oats to use
  • COOKIES!

The recipe was fairly straight-forward and the only modification that I made was using slightly less walnuts due to the amount I had on-hand.

Here are some pictures from my time baking these!

Stackable cooling racks are key for small kitchens!

All the cookies!

All in all, I give this recipe five out of five stars for taste.
