Bacon & Cheese Muffin Recipe

I recently shared these over at my girl Jen’s….but in case you haven’t clicked over there I wanted to share them here too. These muffins…oh my. Grab your coffee, cut up an orange…and warm up one of these Bacon Cheese muffins…done and done. If you are feeling extra naughty you could drizzle a tiny bit of warm maple syrup on the top….yeah….are you drooling yet?

Serve these up to your Easter brunch crowd…and they would love you that much more…but that would mean you would have to share them…and then there wouldn’t be any leftovers for just you. Do I sound selfish? That is probably not the Easter spirit…ok…I’ll share….

Seriously though, these bake up light and fluffy and have this gooeyness to them. Cheesy, chive-y and bacon-y…and completely yummy (my own adjectives….moving on…)

The ingredients are simple and straightforward. Just be sure to combine all the wet ingredients first, then gently add in your dry ingredients. Do not over mix….or you are sure to have a tough muffin. Tough muffin= no bueno. :)

These muffins would be a perfect addition to your Easter table this year. Serve them up with an egg casserole, some fresh fruit and you are good to go!

Goldilocks and the 40 showings…

Once upon a time, there was a lovely house on a beautiful street. Every house on the street was filled with families who loved being neighbors on their quiet little street in one of the top school districts in the state. It was a place where kids bounced balls, rode bikes, drank lemonade and had great fun all the time. Where families take care of one and other. This little house was a sweet little house. On a pie shaped lot, that had lots of room to roam in front and a neighborly backyard for … [Read More...]

#clevermoving Monday: Drywall begins

Hey all! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. What gorgeous weather we had!! Back today with another #clevermoving Monday.... When the drywall goes up…the house immediately looks a lot more like a house…but really the construction process is not even half way complete (at least that is what I am telling myself since we still have a house for sale!) Haha! The drywall process itself usually takes a few weeks. Hanging, mudding and sanding…it all takes a while. Here are a few recent pictures I … [Read More...]

We had a glorious time last week. The beach was empty…serene and every time I grabbed my beach chair and bag…and put on my flip flops…and walked 3 blocks to the ocean….I had a lump in my throat and a feeling of overwhelming blessings. It is a place that is a retreat in every sense of the word. The sound of the gulls…the rush of the oceans waves lapping the sand…kids building sandcastles and playing paddleball….it all just feels like home. We slept with our windows open and waking up to the sound … [Read More...]

things to do before you list your house: #clevermoving Monday

We are back rested and recharged from spring break…but we could have easily spent another week at the beach. That is usually the case though.

He went in for another test this past Tuesday and the inital results of it look very promising. They were checking lymph nodes to see if any cancer was present there...and it appears that the nodes are … [Read More...]


Make a Newspaper Flower

Just popping in to share this sweet little craft for spring break week:) With the winter that we have had….these may be the only flowers in bloom this spring. I shared this a long time ago on another blog…but I haven’t shared it here yet. This would be great spring break craft to whip up with the kids…and the cost is almost free! Instead of newspaper…you could use some pretty scrapbook paper and mix it up a bit for a little punch of color---bonus…it doesn’t require any watering;) Which means … [Read More...]
