Jordan Marsh-Style Blueberry Muffins

Hello from 9,000 feet (2,743 meters) above sea level!

In between this post and last post, I moved house from the Front Range to the Western Slope.  All TC wanted was muffins once we were in our new place, so I made these blueberry muffins, complete with crunchy sugar on top.

Revenants | Cherry Chocolate Chip Vice Cream

Fun fact, Gothic Granola isn’t dead.  Neither am I.  I’ve been Instagramming my creations but haven’t been blogging as I’ve been creative writing and working on other projects.  Since November 2015, I have made several kinds of vice cream (vegan ice cream) including:

  • Chocolate
  • Rocky road
  • Mint chocolate chip
  • Pistachio
  • Cherry chocolate chip
  • Kind of whippy vanilla (that’s a lot like coco whip)

Leftover mashed potatoes happen?!  Yes, yes they do.  Using my stand mixer to whip the boiled red potatoes made short work of the mashercizing process.

Cream Cheeze Cutouts

I did it.  Finally, I have made vegan and gluten-free version of Cream Cheese Cutouts that tastes good, rolls properly, and bakes up soft and slightly puffy, just like I remembered.  Why the spelling differences?  Mine are Cream Cheeze Cutouts due to fake animal products; Ownie Mom’s are Cream Cheese Cutouts, since hers are traditional wheat flour, egg, and dairy, etc.

Maraschino Cookies, Music, and Lip Balm

Fun news in my life: I got food poisoning and have been having some ongoing nausea for the last week and a half, hence no blog posts.

Digestive turmoil aside, other things I have been doing include working (open enrollment season! Aaagh!), listening to “new to me” music, instagramming my Halloween socks, following P90X Plus, sorting Legos, and writing.

These are not Breast Cancer Awareness Month cookies.  They just…I’m just going to stop here.  TC asked for maraschino sugar cookies and this is what I found.
