I Made Bran Muffins

Homemade Bran MuffinsI make bran muffins on a “regular” basis. I freeze them and just take out one a day, put a little butter on it, and it’s my evening snack with a glass of warm milk.  The combination of molasses and vanilla gives it that old school bran muffin taste. The older I get, the more I… make bran muffins.🙂 Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

My Simple Lentil Soup

Simple Pureed Lentil SoupSome days, a big bowl of this thick and hearty soup is all I need for dinner, with one of my crusty rolls of course. Lentils are high in protein, low in fat, and have lots of health benefits. I used to have it without pureeing but once I pureed it in the food processor, I never went back. It comes out so thick and creamy, perfect for a cold winter day.

I use unsalted chicken stock but vegetarians can use vegetable stock. I sometimes add some chopped baby spinach in that last couple of minutes if I have it. Either way, lentil soup makes a healthy and satisfying meatless meal. (Don’t forget the crusty roll! 😋) Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

Photo of the Month (December)

Easy Pecan BallsI am so excited to see this photo come in today! The cookies, are beautiful, the setting is beautiful, and it’s the perfect photo on this Christmas Day. Bhairavi said she and her teen son baked some wonderful cookies together for the holidays. “It was perfect mom-son time during these crazy times.”

It’s my photo of the day and photo of the month. Thank you, Bhairavi, and Merry Christmas to you and your family. 🎄

Quick & Easy Pumpkin Bars

Quick & Easy Pumpkin BarsTry to eat just one of these light and delicious bars! They seem to melt in your mouth. This is a quick recipe that uses less sugar than most and even less butter and cream cheese in the frosting. There’s only one ounce of cream cheese and one tablespoon of butter in the frosting.

I can never seem to get the top smooth but it doesn’t matter since they’re frosted anyway. Plus, you can always frost them upside down. My oil of choice for baking is avocado oil but they’re not all the same. Look for one that is light colored and flavorless. (see my brand under “Products I Use”). I line my pan with foil for easy cleanup and I frost these bars right in the pan.

Some days I crave pumpkin pie but don’t want to work that hard. These fragrant bars are the next best thing. (My husband calls them pumpkin brownies – sounds like a ploy for me to put in some chocolate chips ? – maybe next time.)  Click here for the recipe  – Jenny Jones

Photo of the Month (September)

Easy BrowniesI was touched by this photo from Kyae in Myanmar. Due to the virus, she lost her job and found a way to earn some income by selling homemade baked goods. She decided on my dark chocolate fudge brownies and wrote, “I even have regular customers for my brownies, they always order 10 pieces of my brownie almost 3 times a month. I got comments like, * Same taste from the favorites coffee shop when I visited state! * I am so happy and always wanted to say thank you for sharing your recipes with everyone.”

I’m so glad that my recipe is helping her during these challenging times. To see others who are using my recipes to help support their families, click here.
