Hi everyone!

This past weekend was a fun filled one.  I celebrated being another year older which was fun.  My husband and son baked me a cake (German chocolate-yum!). It turned out great even though my son threw a few extra ingredients in! He is quite the boss in the kitchen! 😉

We went apple picking in Wisconsin which was so much fun. I now have a whole lot of apples to eat and use up! I always love spending a fall day among the apple trees and it was especially fun watching my son experience it and eat apple after apple off of the trees!

And he picked out a pretty great pumpkin that needs carving.

Cinnamon Yogurt Blueberry Muffins

The Sunday after a busy weekend always calls for a special treat. I love making things like pancakes, waffles, coffee cake or muffins to enjoy with my family on a lazy Sunday morning.  These Cinnamon Yogurt Blueberry Muffins hit the spot and were easy to throw together Sunday morning.

I love that they use yogurt–helping keep the muffins moist and adding that healthy component to them.

You could easily substitute the blueberries for any berry that you have on hand and they would turn out great.
