Monday Muffins


Whole Wheat Banana Muffins makes 12 muffins

1 C. whole wheat flour 3 mashed bananas

1 T. baking powder 1/2 C. sugar

1/2 t. baking soda 1/2 C. unsweetened apple sauce

1/8 t. salt 1 egg

2 T. ground flax seed 1/2 t. vanilla

1/2 t. cinnamon (i used a little more :) 1 t. olive oil (ish, i added a little more)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Either use muffin liners or spray your pan.

Mix all dry ingredients except sugar. Be sure to mix well! (otherwise you will have muffins of all sizes see above picture :) In a separate bowl, mix together remaining ingredients. Stir this banana mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. *I use an ice cream (or cookie) scoop to put the batter in the muffin tins. Works well.*

Bake 15 - 20 minutes. Enjoy!

These are super quick and easy to make. They are quite tasty and not dry like some whole wheat muffins can be. If you care, they are 3 weight watchers plus points each. They could be sweeter, so if someone has a low cal idea of how to do it, please let me know!!

Hope your Monday wasn't terrible!

I have lots of dreams.  They include everything from sheep to road bikes to my dog actually listening to me...

I also LOVE to take pictures.  I mean LOVE.  Sometimes I go weeks without taking a single picture. Weird right?  Why not do something I feel that passionately about, everyday?

Here are some of my most recent pictures:

I live in Wisconsin and feel blessed that there are so many beautiful things for me to take pictures of.  When you're obsessed with barns and farm animals like I am, they're but a country road away!

I'm going to slowly try to find myself again.  For the hundredth time.  I am sorry if that is all I write about here on this blog now, but hey - blogs are journals of a sort.  They just happen to be public ;) 


Yet again...

January 2014.  I'm supposed to be uber fit, an organic farmer and self employed by now.

I. Am. None. Of. Those. Things. Not even one.  For a while, I felt like a big loser, but then I realized:

Ugh.  Yep, it's all me.  I wish. A LOT.  I DO. Very little.  I have no one or no where to place the blame, but on me. I have the tools and the knowledge, I choose to ignore both and do nothing.  It all comes down to choices.

How do I start?  Where do I start?

At the beginning. AGAIN.

-So, I've joined Weight Watchers (I wonder if there is a record for how many times a single person has started and stopped Weight Watchers?  I'd probably win).

-I'm planning my garden and new chicken coop.

-I'm baking bread today (yes, I realize this may impact WW, but homemade bread!!!)

-I'm beginning to make what I can, whether it be food or beauty products.

Too much all at once?  I have no idea.  Will I fail?  I certainly hope not.

I welcome any thoughts, advice or ideas.

And if you …

Finding My Way

Mike finished the upstairs of his shop for me. For my space. To use as I wish.  It's been finished and painted for a year.  Last night I finally felt the urge to begin to sort through and organize.  This is the beginning of my new studio space and I couldn't be more excited!!  I haven't created much art or jewelry over the last few years and until last night, I didn't realize how much I missed it.  Obviously, I still have a lot of work to do up here, but my work table is up and towards the back you can see my completely awesome blueprint file drawers that I won't be using for blueprints ;)

I've been feeling a little "off" lately and I think I've finally figured why.  I am a creative person at heart and I've been stifling my own creativity to conform and to make time for everything else.  I've decided it's time to fly my own flag and be who I am.  Who cares if one day all I think about is running and the next I am so engrossed in a pro…
