Here is a very healthy muffin that actually tastes good and is very easy to make! I adapted several recipes and added my own touches. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
4 Cups of quick-cooking oats1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ground ginger
2 TB vanilla
2 cups of skim milk mixed with 1 TB of vinegar
2 eggs lightly beaten
4 cups shredded apples with peels
1 cup golden raisin
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup honey
Mix wet ingredients and dry ingredients separately,then stir together until well blended. Spray non-stick cooking spray into muffin tin and fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 400 degrees for about 11 minutes. Store in air-tight container after they are cooled. They become moister over night.
Great for a fast breakfast! Enjoy!

True confession. I love make up. I have very fair skin with green eyes and light golden brown hair ( or so my box of hair color claims). My eyelashes are so light that without make up I look seriously anemic. Over the years I have tried lots of cheap mascaras. For years I used L'Oreal Voluminous until I got tired of the flakes of mascara falling off during the day. So, I started trying department store make up. I was lured by the gifts with purchase and the promise of being able to return if I did not like it. I reasoned that even though the price is more than double of the drug store brand ;if I didn't like it and could return it, I would actually save money.
Recently, I have become of fan of Lancome mascaras. I have tried several and liked them to varying degrees. A few I sent back for a full refund! After reading a lot of reviews and talking to the woman at my local Lancome counter I settled on trying Lancome Hypnose Drama.
This morning I used it for the first time and I must say, I love it! It thickens my lashes and lengthens them and gives them a "fanned out" look. I used several coats to achieve the look I wanted. No allergy, no flaking. My lashes look better than I hoped they would. I am impressed. Lancome mascaras are a good value because they last for a long time. If you try it and don't love it, take it back!
I thought I would share this for any of you that like me are looking for the perfect mascara!
