Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Muffins on
It’s been a busy week here. I’ve been testing loads of new recipes for fall and preparing blog posts for the new season as well as the lead up to (dare I say it?) Christmas! I’m also working on an exciting new project! I’m sharing more about it in this post along with a recipe for Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Muffins.

  4. Wow, it does sound like you have been super productive, my friend! I’ll admit that I am looking forward to being back in full-on baking mode soon! 😉 This week I’ve linked up my latest recipe, Okra Popcorn (I honestly would choose it over French fries!), and an older, but super popular recipe, Paleo Fluffy Puffy Almond Butter (or Sunbutter) Cookies.

    Thanks for hosting, April. Off to check out some links per usual! 🙂
