cinnamon maple cereal crumb muffins
Guest post from Carissa of Pretty/Hungry
I recently came to a point where the budgeter in me just couldn’t bear to throw away any more cereal crumbs! Week after week, I’d find myself at the bottom of another box of cereal with a good two inches of dust left over, and it bothered me to just toss all that in the garbage can.
Now I realize that in the grand scheme of things, throwing away a few cereal crumbs is FAR from earth-shattering. But I just knew there must be some way to make good use of all that crunchy whole-grain goodness rather than just tossing it.
For those of you who have specifically asked for gluten-free recipes… this recipe was created just for you!
And those of you who aren’t gluten-free? This recipe is for you, too. It doesn’t contain any specialty ingredients (because I realize that not everyone keeps xantham gum in their pantry), and no one will ever guess these soft, fragrant muffins don’t contain any wheat. My family can’t get enough of them!
Valentine’s Day is an all-day celebration at our house! My children spend hours making table and wall decorations, writing homemade cards, and dreaming up red-and-pink-themed menus (not all of which are actually usable/edible!).

I’ve tried – and liked – many different granola recipes over the years, but this is my go-to recipe every single Christmas. Packaged with a Christmas bow and cutesy label, it makes a perfect homemade gift for teachers, neighbors and friends. In fact, certain of my family members and friends have come to expect (demand??) this granola from me every December!
It’s Pumpkin Week here and we’re starting things off with this new-to-us Pumpkin Oatmeal recipe. It was very simple to make — and it was very filling, too. Best of all, it is packed with lots of nutrition… the perfect way to start off a crisp Fall morning.
I did a quick freezer cooking session last night while making food to take to our church’s covered dish supper. I was in a bit of a hurry and a little scatter-brained since I got a late start, but within 35 minutes I managed to pull together five different dishes to take to the church supper plus make some barbecued meatballs and homemade instant oatmeal packets for the freezer.
