My New Toy


I'm so excited about my new Kitchenaid Mixer--yes--it's RED! Eric keeps laughing at my excitement, but I think it's like a power tool for women--so I don't know what the laughter is all about! He's also laughing at me for making instant chocolate pudding in it =)! SO...I'm looking for more ideas! Post an (easy, yummy, kid-friendly) recipe for me to try!!

Here's one of our favorites to get us started: it's for Jam Muffins and since my husband loves anything raspberry and my kids love anything...well, food...they're always a big hit!

Jam Muffins

1/2 c. seedless raspberry jam
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. plain yogurt
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
confectioner's sugar

~mix dry ingredients.
~mix yogurt, oil, egg, and vanilla
~stir the yogurt mixture into the flour mixture just until blended
~fill greased muffin cups half way with batter, top with jam, then cover the jam with batter
~bake 12 minutes in a 400 degree oven
~top with confectioner's sugar

You can let Eric know that other women are coveting the mixer! It looks great! :)
