Peach and Macadamia Nut Muffins with Streusel Topping

BF_Peach Muffins_3990

I love peach season! Our grocery stores have had peaches on sale for a couple weeks now so I have been itching to make something with them. Peaches are one of those fruits that can only be enjoyed for a select period of time during the year. I prefer my peaches firm, which I guess most would consider as unripe. For this recipe, you will want to use a softer peach.

This muffin recipe is adapted from my master muffin mix, which uses buttermilk and sour cream to keep the muffins moist for several days after baking. There is a little extra baking powder in this recipe to help the muffins rise nice and tall.

Hot Shaved Turkey Cutlet Sandwiches with Brown Sugar & Butter Sauce

I love Turkey. In fact my favorite food is turkey sandwiches. Literally, any way you slice it (pun intended.) I can eat any type of turkey sandwich that is hot, cold, on sliced bread, or hoagie. Around Thanksgiving, my husband knows that I will be eating turkey sandwiches for the next week, so we always be sure to buy a little bit bigger bird than we would normally.

2017! Bring on the new year with health and happiness. I had a baby last year. So 2017 is is the year for me to get the baby weight off. I want to also get my health in check and that means making a lot better choices when eating and trying to get more veggies and fiber in my diet.


When 4pm hits, my cravings can sing a different tune than the celery sticks and rice cakes I should be reaching for. That is when I hit a slump for the day. I have been up since 6am chasing a little munchkin and working every chance I can squeeze in. A piece of chocolate and a Coca-cola have been my go-to to get me through that slump and they taste so good.
