Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Apple picking at Orleans Fruit Farm 

I'm no baker, and rarely post recipes on my blog, but since it's a rainy day in September (during a global pandemic, no less) I thought it would be the perfect time to share this delicious recipe!

One of our annual traditions is going apple picking, and we decided to make these simple apple cinnamon muffins that are perfect to eat as a snack, or even for breakfast. They're easy to make--my 12 year old made these on his own. 

So yummy!

Here's what you need: 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 
  • 2 cups diced apples (peeled, obviously)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk 
For the topping: 
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup ground cinnamon
Instructions: 
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. 
  2. Mix together 2 cups flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl--set aside. 
  3. Mix 2 teaspoons flour with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Toss diced apples with the flour and cinnamon mixture in another bowl and set aside. 
  4. Cream together butter and sugar, and add one egg at a time. Mix in vanilla. 
  5. Add the flour mixture to this bowl, alternating with the milk. Stir until combined. 
  6. Add in the diced apples and then scoop the mixture into prepared muffin tins, filling about 3/4 full. 
  7. Bake for 30 minutes. 
  8. Prepare muffin topping while muffins are baking. 
  9. Once muffins have baked and cooled down, brush the butter on and then dip into the cinnamon mixture. 
  10. Enjoy!

Summer Of Colour: Top Gardening Trends With #PCGarden And A Gardening Giveaway

I admit it... I don't have much of a green thumb, but I love beautiful gardens and flowers in the summer. Whether it's at my place, my in-law's, or my parent's home, I appreciate pretty flowers and a lovely garden, and so do my children. Now that the first long weekend of summer is behind us, we're totally in summer mode. I was even motivated to get my garden ready. However you're imagining your outdoor living space, I'm sure it involves some greenery, plants, vegetables, and flowers, right? It just makes everything look and smell so much prettier!

Happy To Be A ShoeMe.ca Shoe Style Ambassador (Plus A Shoe Giveaway!)

I love sharing shopping news with my readers and friends and letting everyone know about fantastic deals, new products I love, and great new sites that are worth checking out. When it comes to retail therapy, there is nothing quite like shoe shopping. Several weeks ago, I was approached by Shoeme.ca  and was asked if I wanted to be their Shoe Style Ambassador . I said YES! YES! YES! quickly, without hesitation, because, well, shopping and shoes? What's not to love? Sigh...

Take The Pledge And Raise A Food Lover

We all lead busy lives—from juggling work to extra-curricular activities, sometimes it feels like there aren’t enough hours in a day to get it all done. Trying to find the perfect balance can be challenging, but one thing remains constant in my household: connecting around the dinner table. Coming from a Greek family, dinnertime was always a priority, no matter how busy our days were, and this is a tradition we’ve kept with our children. Now that our boys are older (13 and 10 years old) my husband and I often get them to help out when it comes to dinner preparation, and even cooking; I’m happy to say that my even my youngest son can make a delicious homemade tomato sauce, with some ingredients coming from our own backyard vegetable garden, like basil, tomatoes, oregano, and onions.   Growing a garden was a new venture for us this summer, and one we thoroughly enjoyed. It made meal time prep more fun, and also forced us all to eat more vegetables than we were used to.
