Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin Muffins

Today I am going to share my recipe for my Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin Muffins. I love baking with whole wheat flour and have previously shared several whole wheat recipes on the blog (Whole Wheat Banana Muffins and Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin Scones).  I also love baking and eating things with “real food” ingredients, that I feel good about my family eating. These muffins turned out very moist and we ate them both for breakfast and snacks. I hope you enjoy this recipe!

  2. 2 tsp. baking powder
  3. ½ tsp. salt

  9. 1 tsp. vanilla
  10. ½ c. milk


1. Preheat the oven to 350 º F and spray 12 muffin tins with cooking spray.

2. Mix the flour, baking bowder, and salt together in a stand mixer…

Tips for Snacks — Made in Germany!

Required: German 😯

Wir alle wissen, dass wir über den Tag verteilt Kohlenhydrate, Eiweiße, Fette, Vitamine, Ballaststoffe usw. zu uns nehmen müssen, um fit und gesund zu bleiben. Jedoch kommt das in der Mittagspause oftmals zu kurz, wie eine Umfrage der DAK zeigt. Der Gang zum nächsten Bäcker, Imbiss oder Schnellrestaurant ist fix erledigt und zwischendurch beruhigen wir unser Hungergefühl mit Süßigkeiten. Hier kommen ein paar Tipps, wie ihr ohne viel Aufwand und auch mit geringen Möglichkeiten einige gesunde Mittagessen zaubern könnt.


Ich glaube viele träumen davon bei Google zu arbeiten, weil die die Vorstellung, eine Karotte zu schälen oder eine Tomate zu waschen, eine einfach zu grosse Herausforderung darstellt. 😉

Ich habe Laura bei WordCamp EU 2019 in Berlin kennengelernt, und ich kann mir gut vorstellen, dass sie auch praktische Tipps zum Thema Hosting haben könnte. Bei unserem Gespräch ging es um “Linking together the WordPress community” (siehe auch die TAGSEO Homepage und / oder diese About Page). 😉

What Is the Difference Between Pho and Bun bo Hue?



what is the difference between pho and bun bo hue

When most people (outside of Asia) think of Vietnamese cuisine, a few dishes generally come to mind. Pho, a traditional peasant noodle soup with vermicelli (rice noodles) and thin fragrant broth, topped with sliced pork or beef, fresh herbs, and bean sprouts is certainly one of them. But a lesser-known cousin with a notable kick has gained favor over the years. Bun bo Hue may not be as widely known a noodle soup as Pho, but it’s earned the adoration of Vietnamese food junkies and chefs alike. So what is the difference between pho and bun bo hue?

Both of these delicious Vietnamese noodle soups can be found on most Vietnamese menus, along with spring rolls, bun cha, banh mi, and some other usual suspects, and though not without similarities and overlapping ingredients, there are some very important distinctions that greatly affect both dishes and their final flavor.

IMG_0594If you’ve read a few of my other recipes, you know I’m lactose sensitive. Of course, it doesn’t stop me from baking with milk and butter most of the time. However, there are times where I just don’t feel like dealing with the consequences. That’s where this next recipe fits right in.  Almond butter cookies. Simple, sweet, salty, and chewy. Yum. These cookies contain six ingredients, are flourless and gluten free.

The best part of this recipe is that you only have to refrigerate this sticky dough for 15 minutes in the fridge. You’ll need a cookie scoop too. It’ll just be super easy to scoop out onto the baking sheet. You’ll have perfectly round cookies.

The next best part of these cookies, as if it wasn’t awesome already, is the flake salt. I used Pacific Blue flake salt for this recipe, but you can use any coarse sea salt…

2 Ingredient Alfredo Sauce!

Belle & Mortar

Okay people, Alfredo is not a word I use often in the kitchen. I absolutely LOVE Alfredo sauce, blush sauce, anything creamy and cheesy. But, I also know it isn’t the healthiest option out there. None the less, I make it every now and then because my husband requests it so often that I have to give in!

I don’t consider myself a “great cook”, but I think I can do what it takes to get the job done. My mom on the other hand is a great cook, just that simple. I was watching her in the kitchen one day make a quick dinner for our family when I was in college, which happened to be an Alfredo sauce. I was amazed at how easy she made it look, but didn’t really pay attention to what went into it. Fast forward a few years to me now attempting to…

Broccoli Fritters

Baking Bytes

Amongst the meat packages and frozen produce I also like to stock my freezers (yes, plural) with healthy items that work for a quick meal when I’m not as prepared as I’d like to be. The best ones can be made into an entree for any meal of the day with items I typically have around anyway. These broccoli fritters have turned out to be just exactly that.

Broccoli Fritters {{Baking Bytes}}

Made up of mostly broccoli and whatever cheese you like, these serve as a healthy and neutral base for nearly anything. Breakfast? Top with sautéed bell peppers and a couple of eggs. Lunch? Serve over a warm grain salad and your favorite salad dressing. Dinner? Prepare a broccoli slider with a large grilled (or baked) bell pepper, a couple slices of bacon, and a spicy aioli. Their individually small stature also makes them great for an appetizer or potluck. The world is…
