Nothing in the Fridge

This morning, I went to the fridge and looked in it and had the thought that I'm sure everyone has at least once a month (yes?) - I have no food in my fridge. Absolutely none. Not even milk. Well, I have goat's milk but that's for my little girls and it doesn't taste so great to me. When this happens, I usually have to start getting a little creative for meals. I started compiling all of the ingredients that I have in my fridge and I typed some things into google and it led me to this great recipe:

Peach Muffins  (
After looking over the recipe, I decided to change a few things around. My husband always gets frustrated with me because I never follow a recipe completely, but I find it just makes things a little more interesting!

I used the same amount of flour (3 cups) but instead of using all-purpose flour, I used spelt flour which is much better for you and easier to digest. I also switched the vegetable oil out for butter. I don't keep vegetable oil since it's not that fantastic for you, but I always have butter on hand. As for the sugar, yikes! Two cups is enough to make anyone become a diabetic with just one muffin (actually probably not, but hey, it is a lot of sugar!) I cut the amount down to 1 cup which I still think is a lot but oh well. I would usually use honey, but that was one of the things that I have run out of. I used the same amounts of everything else. Here is what my recipe ended up looking like:

3 cups Spelt flour
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt
1 1/4 cup melted butter
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup organic cane sugar
2 cups chopped peaches (I used canned and they turned out fine!)

I did not stage this picture. This is what happens when the muffins taste that good!
Don't you love chubby toddler hands?

Bella loved the muffins and now I have the wonderful smell of fresh baking in the house. The total time I spent in the kitchen was 20 minutes with 15 minutes baking time. A few of them burnt, but that was because my 3 month old and my almost 2 year old decided to both need my attention at the same time.

The best part of the recipe is that they suggest to pair the muffins with coffee. Done and done!

On a completely different note, check out my new Facebook shop MGL Handmade. I'll be posting items that I have made including cowls from this post and this post. I'll also be adding some more baby hats (so cute!) & some purses and other items when I get a minute (ha!) If you don't sew, knit or crochet but like the things that you see here, it will be a great place to get those items. Check it out!
