Apple Harvest Muffins

Apple Harvest Muffin recipe - fall recipes

I love the aroma of crisp apples baking in the oven. They fill the kitchen with the scent of fall. You can bake these Apple Harvest Muffins at any time of the year, but they’re really the best in fall, when apples are at their peak! My family goes apple picking every September and we stock up on apples! My kids can’t wait to bake these muffins when we get home. You can freeze these muffins to enjoy at a later time as…

Watermelon Lime Sparkling Drink Recipe

Summer is coming to an end and kids are back to school. That happened fast, didn’t it? Thankfully, we are still experiencing nice weather and can spend most of our afternoons outside in the sunshine. I am still thinking of ways to make summer last a bit longer and enjoy the lazy, hot afternoons. One way we do that is with some special snacks after we finish our homeschooling for the day. Outshine Fruit Bars are a favorite snack around here,…

Earn A FREE Essential Oil Starter Kit!

Interested? The Young Living Premium Starter Kit is a FAVORITE of many, with me included! As far as I’m concerned, it is the only way you should get started using essential oils. It is how I got started using my essential oils a few years ago. It is a tremendous savings….I couldn’t believe it when I started. I was initially only going to purchase a few oils…and those oils added up to the cost of the starter kit…which included a…

My Favorite Podcasts for Christian Women

Meal Plan- Busy Mom- Meal Prep - How to Meal Plan - How to Meal Prep

Moms, we hear it all the time, don’t we? The question that can make us sigh and roll our eyes or want to hide in a corner. We don’t know the answer today and we know we won’t have the answer tomorrow. “Mom, what’s for dinner?” If your house is anything like mine, the questions start around 10AM- right after they’ve had breakfast and a snack. I love and encourage curious minds, but seriously? And that is just one reason…
