don’t use that apple muffin recipe! i do NOT recommend it!

i should have just made apple crisp or fried apples atop breyers vanilla icecream… 


ps: my daughter is now the twirling princess and has learned to click her tongue and does so constantly (so it seems) she also blows kisses at EVERYTHING while on our way to bed!! 🙂

so my poor hubby wishes he never came home from work. (come on, don’t judge me too harshly! you have days like this too – you probably just don’t blog about them!) 

no matter what kind of person i wish to be today; i just can’t be it. i have apologized but it just doesn’t cut it. i’ve been blunt and mean. things that have been festering for a while now (that i didn’t even know were bothering me this much) have hit the fan (and the fan was on HIGH)…

so i’m baking to get some time to myself and try to CHILL!  :s maybe eating it will do the trick… baking helped at least!

here’s what i made. it’s in the oven now. some of the reviews said it was plain. so i added a cinnamon streusel topping and used double the apples the recipe called for. we’ll see what happens in approx. 12 min. 🙂
