Muffin Memories

Thursday is halfway over! How is this possible? The day that I need to go by SLOWLY is flying by!

I had a lot of coffee this morning, so please excuse any typos or caffeinated randomness.

  • One load of laundry is washed, dried, folded and put away. I have one more to do today.
  • Goodwill stuff is ready to go. I’ll be taking as soon as I finish eating.
  • New pots/pans are put away.
  • Dusting, cleaning the bathroom, and vacuuming will be happening this afternoon/during lunch?


For lunch today, I let the fridge decide for me.

If you’re thinking “How many more times am I going to have to see this mac’n’cheese?”….you’re not the only one.


Thankfully, this is the last of it! I heated up some extra broccoli we had and mixed that in and topped it with some salt + crushed red pepper.


You know what I wish I had to finish lunch?



Nick and I went to our favorite local bakery (Our Daily Bread) yesterday during lunch, and I got this vegan pumpkin chocolate chip muffin.


Why didn’t I buy 2?


I split it with one of my co-workers yesterday, and it was the best afternoon snack. I already want another one!


I had a couple questions about my eggs this morning – here’s how I make them!


AND football tonight!!! Virginia Tech vs. UNC – guess who’ll be at the game?  ;)  Pick your winner in the comments!


Have you ever made or had a vegan baked good? What’s your favorite?

    I have made vegan muffins and pancakes before and can never tell the difference. Now, I make gluten free and vegan things!

    I have eaten vegan baked goods. I used to go to hardcore (music) concerts and a lot of people there were vegan/vegetarian. And sometimes there were food stands and they sold vegan food. I’ve eaten some delish foods, not gonna lie.

    Thanks for the eggs “recipe”! :)

    I just made vegan pumpkin muffins this week! Mine had cranberries instead of chocolate chips, but they were way yummy!

    I’m going with Virgina Tech tonight.

    I’ve had a vegan muffin before and it was soooo good. Hunni didn’t even know there weren’t any animal products in it.

    I’ve actually never eaten or made a vegan baked good before, but I was just talking about how I want to find a good recipe to try out!

    Have a great time with your family!

    I made some awesome vegan blueberry muffins (recipe on my blog) the other week. I think they were the best I’ve ever made! :)

    I don’t think you could ever have too much annie’s mac n cheese – LOVE it!

    That muffin sounds and looks AWESOME! I don’t think I could’ve bought just one either :)

    You seriously make annie’s mac & cheese look gourmet. If I were you, I’d head to that bakery right now and get another muffin! It looks so good!

    Oh my gosh – that muffin looks so good. It’s exploding right out of it’s little cup. I wish you had another one too. I bet you could make a delicious version yourself.

    Most of the baked goods I make are vegan, and I love them all…that’s why I don’t make them very often. ;)

    Have fun at the game tonight, and I’m afraid I’m going to have to go with the Tar Heels since my brother is an UNC alum.

    WFs has an amazing sugar free, vegan chocolate chip cookie. Oh my word, it’s like cookie dough!

    All of my baked goods are vegan! :) I don’t know if I can pick a favorite, I’ve made way to many things. I am partial to cookies and muffins though.

    girl I am definitely not complaining about seeing that mac and cheese again — never fails to make me drool :)

    I love mac n’ cheese! I honestly could eat it Or, I could eat the whole box in one sitting! I love how you bulk up the pasta with veggies like broccoli and peas. Great idea! What an awesome eating day! Leftover mac n’ cheese and a choc chip pumpkin muffin? Who could ask for anything more?!

    I have never had a vegan baked good – can you believe it? But I’m sure they taste just as good as the non-vegan. I’m curious to try the Babycakes NYC vegan cupcakes. I hear they are some of the best cupcakes around (and not just in the vegan category).

    Oo that muffin looks perfect–I actually don’t think I’ve ever had something baked that was vegan come to think of it.
