baking therapy

Posted: 12/03/2008 in baking, life

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. 🙂 

Apple Muffins


“A wonderful muffin recipe that’s not too sweet! I like to add extra cinnamon for some more flavor. Great for breakfast with tea or coffee.”


The reviewer gave this recipe 45 stars. This recipe average a 3.3 star rating.

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

    that sounds very YUMMY! and I do the same thing…sometimes when it’s been a TERRIBLE day, i just wanna come home and make something…sweet, supper, or other and just chill…my kitchen is my sanctuary sometimes! Are you feeling any better? I sure hope so!!

    Oh and i got some castor oil today, so gonna try that…it’s a little bigger, slightly, but not any worse…but not better 😦 so here’s hopin! and i went and picked up a red water bottle, too…instead of the other one…although it wasn’t just a red water bottle it was an enema kit, too! haha…so that was slightly weird to buy! 🙂

    Aww.. I hope you have a better day tomorrow!! Its best just for me to stay quiet on those days!! One afternoon Alex stayed home from work b/c he knew i was have a hard time that day.. just one of those days when nothing goes right and your fuse is so short! I HATE those days! Sorry your muffins didn’t turn out good! Carson and i made cookies today and something wasn’t right about it.. maybe i forgot to write down an ingredient on the recipe card? i dunno, kinda a bummer tho!
