Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

I have a wedding shower to help with in the morning and I signed up to bring muffins. Here’s the recipe:

Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins



Ingredients:

1/2 cup Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter

1 stick Land of Lakes butter

1 egg

3/4 cup light brown sugar

1 1/2 cups Bisquick

Big dash cinnamon

1/2 cup milk

4 tablespoons homemade jelly (your choice, I used my mayhaw)

4 tablespoons of Bisquick

What to do:

In a big bowl, mix first 4 ingredients till creamy. Then add the 1 1/2 cups Bisquick and cinnamon. Pour in milk and gently incorporate.  Your muffin batter will be light and fluffy. Next, fill your muffin cups with batter, a little less than half way. Set aside.

In a small bowl, mix the jelly and remainder Bisquick. This is your muffin filling. The baking mix stabilizes the jelly, so it won’t burn or bake out of your muffins. Spoon about a 1/2 teaspoon of filling into the center of each peanut butter muffin cup. Top with the rest of the peanut butter mixture.

Silicone muffin cups are great to use. Your muffins will pop right out. Oh, yeah. I made a sweet potato pie to go with store bought chicken for tonight’s supper. That recipe is It’s A Pecan Not A PeeCan.

 

Silicone muffin cups are a great thing to use instead of traditional paper. Your muffins will pop right out. Bake in a  350° preheated oven for 35 minutes or until the tops puff up and are golden brown. Yield about 15 medium sized muffins.

That one in the back tried to make a liar out of me, but really, had I not combined the jelly and Bisquick all of the mayhaw jelly would have baked out and been a sticky black mess.

Best wishes to the happy couple.

Dear Mr. Drug Head – A Vent To An Idiot

Dear Mr. Drug Head,

You don’t know me. You don’t know anything about me: how hard I work each week to get what I have; how much I have been through and overcome the last few years.

I didn’t have your usual grab and dash, quick pawn cash items that you normally steal from people’s homes. So, you took the tools I was using to renovate my home and repair my life.

I guess your  need to get cash, so you could fund your addiction, was greater than my need to hang drywall and cut Hardie board. By the way, you broke a window in your search for something to take. Pollyanna would tell me to look on the bright side; at least you didn’t lift my paint…

Some would try to argue that you’re strung out and don’t know right from wrong. I warrant that you do know right from wrong. Which is why you entered my house, after we left that night. I know you didn’t get up early the next morning and burgled. Dopers sleep late.

You took everything that you can sell quickly. And I’m trying to be charitable towards you. So, if you come back, there’s no need to go in the house again. Nothing will be kept there.  I’ve learned my lesson the hard way.

I’ll leave a bottle of water on the porch for you. Don’t forget to take all your pills at one time.
