Blueberry Cornbread Muffins – Solar Cooking, No Electricity Needed!

Delicious blueberry cornbread muffins that are baked in 30 minutes in a solar stove, no electricity needed!

Lets talk about the 2 big things in this post:
These Blueberry Cornbread Muffins are delicious! They’re moist, full of flavor and I’ve been dreaming about them ever since I finished the last one.
Yes, seriously, these muffins are made with no electricity! No gas or electric oven! These are made in a solar stove, meaning they are being cooked with the help of that bright beautiful sun in the sky.  Solar cooking is pretty amazing and life changing.  

Delicious blueberry cornbread muffins that are baked in 30 minutes in a solar stove, no electricity needed!

Since it’s Summer time and you’ll be spending lots of time outside at picnics, camping, gardening etc I thought it would be a perfect time to introduce you to solar cooking.  As I mentioned above it’s life changing and I’m obsessed with it.  The first time you cook with just the sun it’s a stunner of a moment.   You’ll feel so proud and happy for doing the world good. You’ll also tell all your friends and family that the food you are serving them is solar cooked because it’s that cool.  Everyone will be amazed.

My solar stove of choice is the GoSun because it works great, is super light (ol “weak arms Pamela” can easily carry it) and looks pretty slick.  With us spending weekends up on the land with no electricity we rely on campfires and this solar stove to keep us fed.  I started using the GoSun a few weeks ago where I easily threw all the ingredients for a cheesy pepper egg omelette into the stove, came back 20 minutes later and breakfast was served.  I love this because time is valuable in the garden so I can just walk away from the solar stove and let it cook while I’m playing in the dirt.

Mini Blueberry Crumble Muffins

These Mini Blueberry Crumble Muffins are moist, they’re tasty, and they have the most delicious crumble on top!

These mini muffins are outrageously good.  You’ll  make a dozen and they’ll be gone within a day!  They’re moist, they’re tasty, they have the most delicious crumble on top and they’re mini which means it totally feels ok to eat 6 of them. At least! 

I used to make a blueberry crumble in a 8×8 pan all the time years ago.  It was my go to “raise the roof” dessert.  Somehow the recipe got lost in my very disorganized recipe binder and it’s been a while since I’ve made it.  A few days ago I was wanting something sweet and remembered I had a bag of frozen blueberries in the freezer.  Then I remembered the blueberry crumble.  Instead of sticking with the old, I decided to to turn the recipe into mini muffins instead.   When Matthew got home he ate one and said “These taste just like the Blueberry Crumble you used to make!”.  Yes, they do!  They’re back!

Berry Jam Canning Recipes

Summertime Canning recipes for Raspberry and Plum Jam, Sour Cherry Jam, Bumbleberry Jam!

It’s that time of the year again, canning season is here.  It’s time to can vegetables and fruits to last us all year!  

Do you have a overabundance of tomatoes, cucumbers or strawberries in the garden right now?  Are you picking them by the pound and then nervously staring at them in the kitchen?  We’ve all been there.    During the Summer my once empty countertops become home to bowls of tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers and watermelon.  If you want to cook or use a appliance then you’ll have to rearrange the vegetables for at least a minute to get some clear space to work with.   With fresh harvest comes the idea of “What the heck am I going to make?”.  We’ve all been there too.

The Muffin Disaster and How I Lived To Tell About It

I know the title is so dramatic but these muffins are full of drama.

 A few days ago I decided I was going to make some big ol blueberry muffins for some friends the next morning.   I put together a recipe, threw on my Brooklyn Nets apron and headed to the kitchen to start to put all the ingredients together.  

The batter was amazing.   When the batter reaches the point of a certain yumminess, then you know what you’re making is going to be the best ever.  I took a few tastes of the batter.  Perfect.  I was feeling pretty good about myself.

Blueberry Lemon Glazed Muffin Top Donuts

These donuts are crazy.  These donuts cray.

I made these one afternoon where I was craving blueberry and sweets.  Matthew and I each had one, and we went to our own desks to continue to work.  Then I heard Matthew walking towards me in the loft.  His plate was empty.  “Oh man, can I have another one of them?”

Isn’t that just the dream response?  

Blueberry Lemon Glazed Muffin Top Donuts_3

I told him to eat his heart out.  Then we talked about how we should stop doing our work and dedicate our lives to donuts.  Oh maybe that was just me, I don’t know, these donuts hit me hard.

1 Pint Blueberry Jam

Is it possible to write about jam without constantly hearing this song play in your head? We’re jammin’, I wanna jam it wid you. We’re jammin’, jammin’, And I hope you like blueberry jammin’, too.  

1 Pint Blueberry JamIMG_3794

Blueberry jam reminds me of my childhood.  Not because my mother made homemade jam, actually I don’t think she’s ever  made homemade jam in her life.  It reminds me of a donut that Dunkin Donuts Mister Donuts had called “The Blueberry Bismark”.   I searched for this and Google basically told me it does not exist but they lie because trust me I had a few too many Blueberry Mismarks as a kid to forget this great treat.  The donut had a creamy sweet vanilla icing which was super soft and it was filled with blueberry jam.  I knew I was a good girl when Mom brought me home a Blueberry Bismark.  I wish that was how life was today.  Oh I cleaned my bedroom, is somebody going to bring me home a donut?  Please, bring me a home a donut.

Overnight Blueberry Maple Oatmeal

Overnight Blueberry Maple Oatmeal is a quick breakfast that’s waiting for you in the morning! Healthy ingredients include oats, blueberries, milk, syrup, flax seeds and cinnamon!

I can’t get enough of overnight oatmeal.  It’s easy, quick and perfect for those summer days where you wake up, leave your air conditioned bedroom and the humidity just smacks you in the face tossing you back into your bedroom to cry under your chilled blankets.  

I made Overnight Cookie Dough Oatmeal a few posts ago and it was delicious, especially if you love peanut butter.    But I wanted to try something with more fruits and reminded me of pancakes, so I added in some syrup and fresh blueberries and Overnight Blueberry Maple Oatmeal was created!  I love this so much I had it 3 times already this week.  Last night while laying in bed at 2AM, I was thinking about it so I got up and made it so I could have it the following morning.  It’s that easy where you can make it half asleep while a cat tugs at your toes to come back to sleep.  (In case you are wondering, FiFi Bofinkles is the toe tugger).

Stay tuned for more upcoming overnight oatmeal recipes – I’m obsessed.

Overnight Cookie Dough Oatmeal

Did you ever wake up in the morning and the last thing you want to do is make breakfast? Actually, the last thing you want to do is wake up, but after that.. you just don’t want to make anything.  As some of you know my go to breakfast is my usual breakfast sandwich, and although it’s quick to make, sometimes I just want breakfast in 10 seconds.  My solution?  Overnight cookie dough oatmeal.  Get ready… this oatmeal is magical!

Knowing you will want a few extra minutes to sleep, or knowing you are going to have a hectic morning, or just knowing this oatmeal is so darn good you want to plan in advance, this is a overnight recipe.  Before you go to sleep, stir together all these ingredients, it takes 2 minutes.  Throw it in the fridge.  When you wake up the next morning, splash a little bit of milk on top, and eat away.  It’s that easy!

Can I tell you how much this breakfast fills me as well?   This breakfast easily gets me through until lunch wanting no snacks in between.  And because the oatmeal has peanut butter in it and tastes like cookie dough, it’s like a breakfast dessert.  Dessert for breakfast – can life be any grander?

For this recipe you need flax seeds.  I didn’t know much about flax seeds, but here’s what I found out: they rule.   Putting them in the overnight oatmeal is going to make the oats thicken, so they aren’t runny.  You can also add them to muffin and cookie recipes.  And because of how little you use, this bag is going to last me at a long time.  Flax seeds are a good investment.

Just a side note, Matthew’s younger brother was terrified of the Quaker Oats man as a kid.  Matthew (because he’s a loving brother) still sometimes sends him Quaker Oats wrapped up as a gift (to terrify him more).

blogIMG_2490
Night before, easy.  Just put all your ingredients in a bowl.   

blogIMG_2495
Then mix it all around.  If you notice, it looks runny because of the milk.  Your flax seeds are going to take care of that though and thicken it!

blogIMG_2510
The next morning, thick!  Delicious! I add a little splash of milk, stir it around, then it’s breakfast time.

blogIMG_2511
You an eat it plain, it’s delicious that way, or you can add a topping. Topping ideas: sliced bananas, dried or fresh berries, shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds, chocolate chips. 

blogIMG_2516
I love some dried blueberries so that’s what I added.

What’s your favorite oatmeal topping?

Banana, Strawberry, Pineapple Smoothie

The last few afternoons I have been craving a smoothie.  We’ve been hard at work gardening and all I want is a cold “pick me up” when I’m exhausted.  This does the trick!  The best thing about this recipe is that you can match fruit to your liking and create your own. Other examples:  banana, orange, pear watermelon, kiwi banana, orange, strawberries banana, blueberries watermelon, orange, pineapple banana, apple, orange pineapple, kiwi orange, strawberries banana, peach strawberry, banana blueberries, apple, banana banana, cherries pineapple, blueberries blueberry, pomegranate, banana There are so many more variations.  Isn’t it amazing?   I also love this recipe because it gets rid of any fruit where you aren’t sure what to do with.  Many times I’m left with a few random strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, a banana that is very ripe, half an orange, etc.    Put all the soon to go bad fruits in your blender and you’ll quickly have a delicious drink.
