Guest Blogger: Cereal Muffins

Cereal Muffins

No cool story behind these muffins. I woke up one morning and was bored with my breakfast options. I wanted cinnamon chip pancakes, but… eh. I didn’t want oatmeal because no doctoring in the world could get me to choke it down. I kinda wanted cereal, but like Chinese food, I eat it and then I’m hungry 20 minutes later. Then I thought about muffins, but I didn’t want the usual muffin suspects and I wasn’t in the mood to blow 400 calories on cinnamon coffee cake muffins either. A slight dilemma.

Guest Blogger: Mulled Wine for Two

Hi there! I’m Sarah and I write over at BettyCupcakes where I blend my Texas homecooking with the flavors of the Irish-Italian family I married into. Needless to say, there is no shortage of good food in our house!

My husband and I have a wee one at home and because of that we share quite a few date nights at home. While I love changing out of my sweatpants and going out for a night on the town, there’s something to be said for curling up on the couch in your pajamas with your sweetheart and treat. Warm and just a touch spicy, this mulled wine is the just the right indulgence for a cozy night.

Might I suggest serving it alongside a soft gingersnap cookie? The flavor combination is delightful!

Guest Blogger: Salted Caramel Sauce

Hi everyone!  I’m Jennifer and I blog at House of Frolic and Mirth.  My husband came up with the title based on the antics of our two adorable yet lively daughters.  I mostly write about delicious food, traveling across the country, and everyday fun.  I’d love for you to join me on Facebook and Pinterest so I can get to know you, and vice versa.  Be prepared, you’re about to read something delicious……..

Move over hot fudge, there’s a new kid in town.  Salted caramel has become extremely popular over the last few years, and this recipe is one you’ll want to make and share.  It’s extremely easy but does take patience.  The results are incredible–sweet, creamy, and the perfect amount of salt combine to make one fantastic caramel sauce!

Today I’m sharing with you a delicious Chocolate Almond Butter Marshmallow Fudge with Sea Salt. Although it sounds rich and decadent, it really isn’t too sweet at all. Using the almond butter evens out the flavors and the sea salt gives it the perfect touch.
