Hey everyone - how are ya'll doing? I sure hope you're all making progress and having fun doing it too! I'm doing great, having fun with all my sewing projects. I've made one super fun maxi dress made of psychadelic green & purple & white circles in a really "wow" pattern - I love it, so that was a fun project. Then I made a really pretty ruffle collar blouse, using just my imagination to come up with the pattern design - and that was a very creative project. I'm also still working on my red maxi dress that is my "final project" for my sewing class. This weekend my friend & I are going to the swap meet to search for more items for sewing.
Now for all my sparkles on here I saw an episode of Dr. Oz that had the coolest & most amazing microwave muffin recipe that only takes 55 seconds to make - so I played with the recipe and made a chocolate muffin from it - and YES it is good! So I want each of you to give it a try! See if you like it! It is so darn easy to make and kind of bizarre how it works - you can twist it up and make a lot of different flavors too! Here is the recipe:
1/4 cup ground flax seed (avail at henry's very cheap)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp coconut oil (henry's has this too, it is white & solid)
2 tsp cinnamon ( I used 2 tsp cocoa powder, you could use variety of flavors)
1 pkt stevia (single serve size, like truvia)
Place ingredients in a coffee mug, stir w/fork, place in microwave on high for
55 seconds. Turn coffee cup over and voila muffin is made - ha!
It is a little on the dry side so it is best served with some fat free cream cheese or a little butter or peanut butter, whatever you like. It has very few calories - all of them are good for you calories and it only takes 55 seconds for a healthy snack or breakfast!
Pretty cool, eh? Try it - you might like it!
Well take it easy and have a great weekend.
Love ya - Kendall
