In a big way.
To Montgomery, Ala.Where I knew the five people in my office and one other. Now, I've made all sorts of friends and settled in quite nicely. There have been the growing pains that one can always expect when, well, DRASTICALLY changing your life. Work has been fine, and I will be going on my first business trip this week: Mississippi! I'll be conducting some interviews alongside one of our other writers, in addition to conducting a few on my own! I've been doing all kinds of projects around the house and cannot wait to show them off! One thing I have started doing was making more and more Pinterest things. Today was no different.
I tried this: Strawberry Shortcake Muffins! They were amazingly well, except as the original blog denotes unless using silicon or foil, the muffins stick. I'll get the official word tomorrow when my taste testers are given part of the batch, but until then.... (bear with me I've never done a step by step post before. But, I go a new toy at work, a Canon Rebel T3i so I'm OBSSESSED with playing with it!) I have copied Katie over at the Dashing Dish's instructions with my own modifications.
2 1/2 cup Oats (old fashioned kind, not quick cooking)
1 cup Plain low fat greek yogurt
3/4 cup Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1 1/2 cup Strawberries, diced, and patted dry (optional 1/2 cup strawberries, diced to place on top of muffins)Half of a fresh lemon, squeezed for juice
Place all of the ingredients (except the strawberries) in a blender or food processor, and blend until oats are smooth.
Pour mixture into a medium sized bowl, and stir in strawberries.
Divide batter among cupcake liners, and bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees.
They look so perfect! Hope my taste testers think they are as good as I do! :)
