My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

Delicious Muffins
My Sister e-mailed me a recipe for Raspberry Creme Muffins, the other day which the girls and I tried out this afternoon. She got it from a bloggy friend (I don't know who, or else I'd pass on credit). But if they taste even half as good as they smell right now baking in my oven, I'll be in heaven.

Raspberry Creme Muffins:
1 egg
1/2 c sour cream (I use Tofutti's Better than Sour Cream)
1/4 c oil
1/2 c sugar

Combine the above ingredients then add:

1.5 c flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t salt

Fold in 1 c. raspberries. Grease muffin tin. Bake at 375 deg. for 20 minutes.

You can see here that Kayla loved the batter so much she decided to lick the counter before I got a chance to clean it...

And after days and days of chilly rainy weather in May, we finally got a day like this...

(These were the ONLY two clouds in the sky - match that with mid 70's)

Oh!, I'm going to try this! Esp since it's "counter-licking good"!!

Oh, YUM!! Raspberries are Miguel's favorite fruit, so we will definitely be trying these. Thanks for sharing! (And maybe we'll make some for your LA road-trip snack pack! Yes, we can get raspberries in November. Isn't California great? :) )
