Snow Day

My least favorite season is winter. However, I love nothing more than a nice snow day. Here is how my perfect snow day goes.

  • Drink a nice cup of blueberry tea
  • Watch the snow fall from my studio window
  • Make a little art - I made this little fox today using watercolor pencil
  • Listen to a book 2 of the Outlander series Dragonfly in Amber
What do you do on your snow days?

As promised to my Facebook friends here is the apple muffin recipe. Warning you may find it hard not to eat the whole pan. I sure did!

These muffins don't rise very high. They are dense, moist and very cake like. They would make a great dessert with a la mode. This recipe yields 12 scrumptious muffins.

2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 granny smith apples, peeled and chopped small
1/2 c copped black walnuts  or chopped pecans (optional)

Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes then periodically check may take up to 40 minutes to bake.
