Blueberry Chocolate Chip Walnut Muffins
We love making muffins (and love eating them). These are super easy and a lot cheaper than buying them in the store. They are best served warm and are great to have with a glass of milk.
Silicone cupcake liners from Amazon work great you can also use cooking spray. For the butter we used Organic Ghee Clarified Butter by Carrington Farms. They also have cooking oils and cooking oil spray.
Whole bunch of awesomeness in one mix! Ready to bake. They will rise so don’t fill them too full. People either love or hate these. Some think it is too many ingredients for a muffin. I love them, especially warm.
MMMMmmmm! Be sure to print the recipe below.
Check out my Jelly Donut Muffins Recipe too. Almost the same batter.

These muffins were super easy to make and they are great for breakfast, dessert or just a mid-day treat. I had the kids help make them and while it was a little messy, we had fun in the kitchen and had a sweet treat afterwards. When making these make sure you let them cool off a little before eating them since the jelly inside gets hot. They are definitely delicious served warm.
I first started with a basic muffin mix. This mix can be used for other types of muffins too (we used leftover batter to make Blueberry Walnut Chocolate Chip muffins).
Add Some batter than alternate with jam and more batter.
The kids were a little messy. The recipe asks for 1 teaspoon of jelly or jam to the middle.
We topped with more batter and then baked them.
Delicious warm and everyone asked for seconds.

A NEW STAR WARS STORY BEGINS
Princess Leia will be missed throughout the galaxy and remembered with fondness. Here is the latest Star Wars movie, coming out in May. A New Hope.
The adventure-filled past of the iconic scoundrel and everyone’s favorite Wookiee is going before cameras this month when principal photography on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story officially began February 20th at Pinewood Studios, London.
The movie will explore the duo’s adventures before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directors co-piloting the movie, with a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.
“Watching such inspired people from all over the world, with such unique voices, come together for the sole purpose of making art, is nothing short of miraculous,” Lord and Miller said. “We can’t think of anything funny to say, because we just feel really moved, and really lucky.”
Written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, it will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, Simon Emanuel and co-produced by Kiri Hart, Susan Towner and Will Allegra. Lawrence Kasdan and Jason McGatlin will executive produce.
Crewing the ship will be some of the industry’s top talent, including Academy Award nominee for his work on “Arrival,” Bradford Young (Director of Photography), Chris Dickens (Editor), Dominic Tuohy (SFX Supervisor), Rob Bredow (VFX Supervisor) and Brad Allan (Action Designer).
They will be joining returning Star Wars veteran crew members Neal Scanlan (Creature & Droid FX Creative Supervisor), Neil Lamont (Production Designer), Dave Crossman and Glyn Dillon (Co-Costume Designers), Jamie Wilkinson (Prop Master), Lisa Tomblin (Hair), Amanda Knight (Make-Up) and Nina Gold (UK Casting Director).
The untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story is slated for release on May 25, 2018.
Celebrating the Weekend With Wine
Having a nice glass of wine to unwind and celebrate the weekend just got easier. Part of having the wine is the shopping for it. Well, for me, after a long week running around, errands, taxi-mom, work, appointments, etc. I do not want to go to a store. Especially on a Friday night. I just want to go home, get in to some comfortable clothes and hang out with some friends. We usually do a potluck at my house and it is a fun and relaxing way for us to have time to catch up and unwind. I found an awesome company called Winc that will deliver wine to my door. Winc has a list of wines with matches depending on what they pair with, the % of alcohol, how light or heavy they are and more. They also have fun and unique names to them. I chose four (since they wine is ordered by the 4-pack) and tried to pick a nice variety.
Even better- Get $20 Off Your First Winc Membership Order.
One From The Quiver & Passarola Vinho Branco
I have the choices of reds (light-bodied, medium bodied and full-bodied), sparkling wines, and whites (light-bodied, medium bodied and full-bodied) when ordering.
Brethren of the Road & Tempo Vero Barbera
I like how most of them are from California and each bottle says the year and where it is made. Plus the prices are fabulous. Each bottle runs between $13 and $25 and you can take the ‘palate quiz’ to see what wines are the best match for you. You can sign up to receive new wine each month, delivered straight to your door (someone age 21+ has to be home to sign for the delivery).
The Winc comes wrapped up and ready to consume upon delivery. Not only can you sample all sorts of wines from different places in the world, you can also invite a friend to be a member and earn up to $26 in credits. Each order comes with an updated Winc List for future order ideas. $20 Off Wine. Yes, Please!
