No theme on this post

I feel like it's been forever since I have posted. Noah has been very sick with 104 fever the past few days. He has a double ear infection and bronchialitis. Non stop screaming :( He is feeling MUCH better today and has been fever free for 24 hours now. He actually slept a straight 12 hours last night, first time in his entire life!

Anyways, now that he's feeling better, I took some pics of him and Hannah and make some yummy treats today!

So here are the pictures and the recipes :)


I bet he's thinking "Hey, I haven't played with you in a while" ;)

Peach Crisp in the Slow Cooker

I wasn't sure how this would turn out being in the slow cooker.. But let me tell ya, so far it looks and smells GREAT!
The best part about this recipe is all the ingredients are pantry staples!
 

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 1 cup quick oats

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened + extra to butter crock

  • 2 lg (20 oz.) cans peaches, drain well
Butter the crock.

Stir together brown sugar, oats, flour and cinnamon. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender or a fork (I used a fork) until the mixture is crumbly.

Pour peaches into the crock, add 1/2 of the crumbs and stir well. Top with the rest of the crumbs.

Cook on low 3-4 hours. If you want it extra crispy you can put the crock pot under the broiler for a minute before serving. We skipped this part and it was still crispy around the edges.

Enjoy!

And, I made these this morning. Super yummy!

Apple Brown Betty Muffins

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbs. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 cup diced apples ( I used 2 large apples and put it all in, it was a little over a cup)


    Stir together dry ingredients with a spoon. In a separate bown mix together butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Add in the milk, eggs, and vanilla and mix until it looks smooth.

    Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently fold together only until combined. Gently stir in the apples.

    Divide into greased muffin cups and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.

Since bug (Noah-we always call him bug) was feeling better we went to my friend's daughters 1st birthday at Chuck E Cheese. You can only imagine how excited Hannah was :) I was carrying bug around most of the time, so I didn't get very many pictures but here are a few:
