Jumbo Homemade Blueberry Muffins

I love blueberries. During the summer, I eat them everyday. From oatmeal to smoothies, and everything in between, I can seem to get enough of these berries. The other day, I was in the mood for some nice jumbo blueberry muffins. I could have ventured to my local bakery and grabbed a few, but I love to cook, so I decided to make my own. I found this recipe, and adapted it to my own liking. I used buttermilk in the batter, as well as added Sugar In The Raw natural cane turbinado sugar on top of the muffins before baking. This recipe yielded me 6 jumbo muffins.








Snacking On The Go~ Bento #164

A great dip is essential when creating a snack lunch box.  Whenever I am snacking on fresh fruit, I enjoy dipping my fruit into a yummy dip. My dips normally have a yogurt base, then I add a sweet or savory jam to enhance the flavor. For this lunch box however, I decided to mix my Go-GURT yogurt with some all natural, unsweetened peanut butter.


Although I chose to use peanut butter, any type of nut butter or allergy-friendly alternative would work just fine.


Simply add 1 Go-GURT yogurt tube into a bowl (I used the strawberry smoothie flavor), and will well with 1 tbsp all natural, unsweetened peanut butter/nut butter alternative.

Go-GURT Peanut Butter Dip

I sliced up some fresh peaches and strawberries, and added some pretzels to accompany my dip. It made the perfect on the go snack in my Lunchbots Duo lunch box. This dip is quickly becoming my new favorite.

Chicken nuggets seem to be a staple on many restaurant menus. I don’t mind my kids ordering chicken nuggets from certain restaurants, but I prefer making them myself. In doing so, I know exactly what my kids are eating. I recently made my kids a batch of chicken nuggets for dinner, and they loved them […]
