It has been a week of discoveries. One of them being my oven running hotter than what it is should. A sensor must be off a little. It caused some of my cakes and breads to be over-baked. Muffins turned into hockey pucks and that is not a good thing. I finally got an oven […]

Simple, comfort, home, quiet, calm, and chocolate – these are words I had most on my mind. The past months have been exciting, challenging, complex, and filled with highs and lows. There isn’t a single minute of it I would take back. I only wish there had been more minutes of the day to get […]

Sausage, Onion and Cheese Muffins | Magnolia Days

A tear rolled down my face. It was followed by another and soon it was hard to see. Walking away was the only option. Was my heart broken? No. Did I just receive some terrible news? Nope. It was the darn onions. Chopping them released that eye-burning chemical. I had forgotten to light a candle […]

Flour, fat, and liquid are the only three things needed for a batch of fluffy biscuits. Well, that is when the flour is self-rising. Scoop out flour into a bowl, cut in the fat, and bind it together with liquid. Cut or shape then bake. It’s as easy as it sounds. The problem to share […]
