cinnamon-topped oatmeal muffins

October 9, 2014

This is the second in my ten quick breads challenge. It is a delicious challenge. This time I went for muffins. I like that they’re not overly sweet (except for the topping…yum) and that they have oatmeal which is hearty – and good for lactation if that’s something important to you. :) Cinnamon-topped oatmeal muffinsadapted from More-With-Less 1 cup sifted flour 1/4 cup sugar 3 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup quick or old-fashioned oats 1/2 cup raisins (optional – I didn’t have any, so I left them out) 3 Tablespoons oil 1 egg, beaten 1 cup milk For the topping: 2 Tablespoons sugar 2 teaspoons flour 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon melted butter Preheat oven to 425…

autumn reading list

October 8, 2014

One thing I learned from my reader survey is that you guys like to read about and talk books! That was really exciting for me to discover because I could discuss them forever. For most of this year I’ve been in a reading slump as I’ve adjusted to two kids and reordered my life, but lately I’ve been reading a lot more and I’m excited about it. I’m going to continue sharing what I actually read each quarter, but I’ll be sharing more in-depth reviews when a book really affects me or an issue sticks out. I’ll probably also be bringing up other reading topics from time to time. Today I’m talking about the books I’d like to read this fall. I’m…

30 days of lists : days 21 – 30 (and what I thought of it)

October 7, 2014

Well 30 days of lists is over! Here are my last set of lists, followed by my thoughts on joining the challenge officially for the first time. So! This was a fun and easy journaling challenge. They run it every March and September with a different set of prompts. I’ve followed it in the past but never joined officially until now, because I didn’t want to pay for something I could just come up with by myself. And of course, you can always see the prompts once they are released, or go through the old ones. However, joining “officially” gave me access to the private blog and Facebook group. I checked this once a day. I didn’t get super involved,…

working mama files // maggie rhoden

October 6, 2014

Working Mama Files is an interview series designed to support and encourage working moms along the path to having a fulfilling life. Today I am featuring one of my real life friends, Maggie Rhoden. I met Maggie at my first job, before either of us had kids, where we both started out working on an inpatient oncology unit as nurses. We connected quickly and stayed friends after Maggie changed specialties. She is so fun and laid-back and real, and I just adore being her friend. She is also my motherhood pen pal! I know you will love her! Who lives in your house? My husband and myself along with our 8 month old son, Rory and our 5 year old…
