It's a keeper. Our new family favorite blueberry muffin recipe. Great breakfast idea would be good as a quick bread too.

This simple blueberry muffin recipe is so good your whole family will fall in love. I have made it with both fresh and frozen blueberries and both work equally well. They are perfect for lazy weekend mornings and if you’re lucky enough to have leftover they make a great weekday breakfast!

What’s For Dinner

Spicy chorizo chili

After my great experience with the Sunbasket and my last Sew Our Stash creation which I loved but was definitely tighter than it should be I’ve decided I reeeeeeeaalllly need to get my eating into action. I think I have two main downfalls.

First we’ve started eating out A LOT. Not just dinners, we’ve gotten kinda bad. There have been days I’ve eaten out 3 times eep! And as much as I really do like eating out it’s getting expensive and we’re getting fat. So I want to get back on the meal planning schedule. And I think ever once in a while I’ll probably order a Sunbasket because I really liked that whole thing. If you’re curious about it my write has lots of info, there is a great deal to try it for the first week for only 5$ a meal, and my giveaway for a free week is still going on. But all that’s to say is I need a plan.

My second eating issue I have is snacking. I’m a stress eater and I lately I just find myself reaching for the snacks. Nothing huge is going on just the normal juggle. But I’ve started having a snack while Teddy naps and then late at night ack. Not only is it a snack but they have been meal sized snacks! The worst part is I’m not even hungry. So yes I want to try a plan. I’m going to write it out once again!


  • Egg and English Muffin
  • Coconut Greek yogurt and Almonds


  • Trader Joe’s Shrimp Nuggets (I’m obsessed)
  • Quesadillas
  • Pigs in a Blanket


Apparently I need help with breakfast and lunch ideas. What do you guys eat?

What’s For Dinner: Back in the Saddle

Bacon Brussels Sprouts - Rae Gun Ramblings

I’ve finally started cooking again. Between adjusting to life with Teddy and then the craziness of my Halloween orders it’s been FOREVER but I missed my weekly menu planning so I decided to bring it back.

My nieces are really into the show Chopped and watching it with them has really convicted me over how much we eat out. If you’ve never seen the show the contestants are given random (oftentimes undesirable ingredients) that they have 30 minutes to make a dish using the ingredients. The thing is everything always looks delicious. I figured if they can make something with their crazy ingredients than I should be able to make stuff with my whole fridge, pantry, and second freezer full of stuff. Am I right? I think something that will help me is that when I write up these plans I’m only allowed to put stuff that I have all the ingredients on hand to make

Day Meal
Saturday Raspberry Chicken Salad
Sunday Butternut Soup and Fancy Grilled Cheese
Monday Salmon with Ravioli
Tuesday Seafood Pot Pie
Wednesday Cheater Navajo Tacos
Thursday Eat Out
Friday  Kielbasa and Roasted Veggies

What’s For Dinner Christmas Recap

Christmas Feast - Rae Gun Ramblings

I’m pretending that I have a normal job and am on vacation like everyone else. That’s okay right? We had a lot of yummy food over this last week. And I have to say it’s the first time we’ve had great holiday meals but didn’t go away feeling gorged which was so nice. We had Stuffed Shells on New Years Eve with both sides of the family (I’ll share the recipe soon) and my sister’s fantastic Prime Rib on Christmas.

We lucked out too because we all agreed that this year was her best yet! She also made a delicious blue cheese sauce to go with it and I brought my favorite asparagus with bacon and poached eggs. We finished off the meals with cheesecake on Christmas Eve and mousse and cheesecake on Christmas (I’ll have to share my mom’s mousse recipe it’s so yummy). My only regret is that I let my mom keep the leftover cheesecake, total mistake!

I’m realizing that Toasty is going to be here pretty soon and I’m getting a bit nervous. I’m trying to check a few things off my lists of things to do including make some freezer meals. I’m thinking of making at least one dish that I can double or triple to freeze each week. If you have any favorite freezer meals please let me know!

What’s for dinner this week…
