Pregnancy cravings are real, yo…
I had a taste for homemade muffins which in my opinion, are better than store-bought primarily because they don’t have a list of unpronounceable ingredients. Seriously, it is just a freakin’ muffin, not a science experiment! 🙂
Anyways, I’ve had this muffin recipe for years and let me tell you, it totally satisfied my cravings and my husband and daughter ate ’em right up as well. Pregnant or not, these muffins will not last long, because they are that delicious!
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup white sugar
- I cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup nuts chopped (I did not add this, as I hate nuts in muffins, cookies, etc…)
- 3 tsp. cinnamon
- 4 cups of all-purpose flour
- 2 cups applesauce
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. all spice
- ½ tsp. salt
- Preheat oven to 400°
- Cream butter.
- Blend in white sugar, brown sugar, and eggs.
- Add nuts, cinnamon, baking soda, all spice, and salt. Mix well.
- Add flour and applesauce. Make sure everything is mixed together well.
- Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.
Yesterday, I shared on Instagram my big news…
I’m pregnant!!! 🙂
Yup, we have a new addition to our family coming later on this year! Can I tell you, my daughter is simply OVER THE MOON that she is going to be a big sister! She is super excited. She is also wise. I asked her if she will help with the baby’s poopie diapers and her response was, “No. I am not doing the poopie diapers. Daddy can do those. I will handle the clean ones”. 😀 Lol…
In terms of how I am feeling, I am feeling better than a couple of months ago when morning sickness slammed me and wouldn’t let up. I don’t think I ever thrown up so much in my life. (Sorry if that is too much info, but it is the truth!) The morning sickness was definitely worse this time around than with my daughter. Maybe because of my age or who knows, but I am oh so thankful that me and the porcelain throne are no longer on intimate terms 😉
I am currently in my 5th month and plugging along ♥ I have already been through the “ice cream craving” phase. Cookies ‘n cream if you are interested 🙂 What I have a complete aversion to is garlic. I can’t eat it. I can’t smell it. I can’t even be around it. No garlic, absolutely zilch. Which sucks because I do like it, just the baby can’t seem to stand it. So that means no hummus, no pizza, no Italian food of any kind, etc… (Waaaaaaaahhhhh…..)
But Mexican food has been my jam! Thankful for living in Southern California where it is indeed plentiful and my cravings can be satisfied 🙂
So excited to share my news with you all! ♥
