The Duffin - Recipe Redo

This is a slight variation of an eggless recipe on Crunchycreamysweet.com. It is very easy; chocolate chip cookies are harder to make. If you have a doughnut tin, by all means use it. Since I don't, I used my regular muffin/cupcake tin. Mini muffin tins work well here too. If you use a regular muffin tin, fill 12 halfway.


The Duffin

Yield: 18 mini muffins, 12 regular muffins

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 1/4 c unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


Directions:

1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Line muffin tin with cupcake liners. Set aside.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder. Set aside.
4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together melted butter and sugar.
5. Add spices and vanilla, whisk well.
6. Add milk and whisk again.
7. Add dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.
8. Fill the muffin pan.
9. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 17 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center of each muffin comes out clean.
10. Cool in pan for 2 minutes, transfer onto a wire rack.
11. Prepare the coating: melt butter in a small bowl; in another small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon.
12. When muffins are completely cool, dunk each one in melted butter and then roll in cinnamon sugar. 
13. Return onto wire rack and let cool for few minutes.

Junk Drawer Organization

I just moved to a new city and state, and none of my storage space in my new apartment is like all my storage space in my old house. I downsized from 2,000 square feet to 900 square feet, so I am trying to cope.


















The junk drawer is always a hassle. It won't open well, it won't stay shut, or you can't find anything.
Dollar Tree to the rescue! I purchased plastic skinny storage containers and poster tack (putty) all at the dollar store. For less than $5, I have this now:

No labels needed. Each container had very little in it. One for pens, index cards (used for shopping lists), measuring tape, tape and stapler, mini flashlight and box cutter, and letter opener and hole punch.

Simply cut a dime-size chunk of poster tack. Place it on the bottom corners of your containers. And, place the container in its rightful spot. When you open the drawer, nothing moves or jingles. So nice!!

Let me know what you've done to tame your junk drawer.

Free Printable - Daily Journal

I journal everyday. I jot down a few sentences or bullet points that help me set the tone for my day, and then I reflect on my day. It creates self-awareness and motivation. It helps me understand what is really important to me.

I have been through a rough few months due to a job loss that, which was really a blessing to lose. I was bullied excessively by a manager for 11 months. It took a lot of strength for me not to quit and stay motivated. This journal is what helped!

Positive Thinking Experiment

I've been thrown some curve balls in my life that I am proud to say I have handled well. In order to stay positive throughout all the negativity, I have journaled, created vision boards, and I even listened to countless hours of positivity focused audiobooks. There's no secret recipe to happiness because everyone gauges happiness in different ways. To me, happiness is security with the ones I love. Pretty simple, huh?
OK, so you don't need to do what I did, and I wouldn't recommend the hours of book reading or listening. If you're working on being a more positive person, or even if it was your new year resolution, here is a guideline to follow. Take gratitude walks. It is hard to carve out time to walk around, but I encourage you to take 10 minutes at first and work up to 30 minutes a week. I suggest taking a walk anywhere, even around your house, with your significant other and mention all the things you are grateful for. You can do it alone, like I do around my off…
