Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins

22 May

My sweet little nephew was recently dedicated at our church. After the service, our family had a big celebration brunch. My sister-in-law asked if I could bring muffins to the gathering and I knew these strawberry rhubarb muffins would be the perfect spring treat. Strawberries and rhubarb compliment each other perfectly and the oatmeal crumble topping gives it a little crunchy texture and adds wonderful fiber to the beginning of your day!

Blackberry Muffins

22 Apr

I am not really a morning person. I don’t like to get up any earlier than I have to. I usually don’t make breakfast on weekdays because of time and I actually like to eat cereal, but weekends call for something a little more extravagant for breakfast.

These muffins are bursting with fresh, plump blackberries. Moist and fluffy with just a hint of warm cinnamon to complement the sweet berries. They don’t take long to make and they help brighten the morning.

Happy Friday! I am in an excellent mood and here’s why… I started my day off with the most perfect blueberry muffins.  Straight forward. Simple. Spring. The berries are so plump and juicy and right there in every single bite. The delicious crumb topping is an excellent touch.

We currently have friends from Colorado staying with us and these muffins were a great company treat. There is no doubt I’ll be making this recipe many times to come!

Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

I spent this past weekend celebrating Easter in Oklahoma with my family. It was filled with fun activities, laughter, sunshine and of course delicious food.

These lemon poppy seed muffins are incredibly moist and the lemon glaze is the right amount of sweetness to top them off. These are simple muffins. You know these muffins. A little crunch from the poppy seeds. Sugary lemon glaze. It’s a marvelous thing.

We don’t have church until 11:15 on Sunday mornings.  During the week we are always rushing off to work, so Sunday morning is usually when we have our breakfast treats. The waffles are made with a mix of whole wheat and all-purpose flour. They are light, fluffy and very delicious!


We like to top the waffles with powdered sugar, sliced strawberries and whipped cream. And if you happen to have extra waffles leftover, place them in a freezer bag. They freeze wonderfully! Just pop them in the toaster when you are ready for a waffle fix.

Cornmeal Molasses Pancakes with Blackberry Vanilla Sauce

“Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me..” – John 15:4

Throughout the Bible, the word “fruit” refers to evidence of what is within. As many of you know, the fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Although, I strongly desire to nurture and cultivate these fruits into my daily life, they do not come naturally to me.


“For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the  things that you please.” – Galatians 5:17

There is something that is continually getting in the way and that is the conflict between the flesh and the Spirit. These fleshly pursuits result in “deeds of the flesh” sins and vices, such as jealousy, strife, and outbursts of anger. It is vital to continually ask God to help you recognize your fleshly tendencies and weaknesses, so that you can submit them to Him, walk by the Spirit and seek to please Him with our thoughts, words, and actions.
