SO. This is another one of those old recipes I’m finally posting (all part of the get-back-into-blogging-groove), but these I totally remember.

I may be 23 years old, but I still can’t seem to get over the hitch that I (almost) always crave something sweet over savory for breakfast.

Spiced Apple Muffins with Apple Cinnamon Glaze - an light fall treat that's easy to whip up. | http://www.brighteyedbaker.com #fallrecipes

I’m pretty sure I’ve been living in denial, because it’s October and I’m just barely starting to acknowledge that fall is HERE.

So, are you one of those “go with the flow” people, or are you a planner? As much as I sometimes wish I was better at being relaxed and easy-going, it’s in my nature to need things planned out. If you remember me talking about my trip to France, that’s a perfect example of what […]
