Foodie Friday (updated)

{Today is Foodie Friday}

Yesterday, I looked in my refrigerator and saw a pint of fresh blueberries that were starting to go south. I wondered what I could do with them and decided to make homemade blueberry muffins. I busted out the Magnolia cookbook, found a recipe and got to cookin'.

I've never made blueberry muffins with fresh blueberries...
I think they turned out pretty good...
and looked pretty...
I've had a few (or fifty)
I'm also planning to cook a couple of yummy things this weekend...

Last week when I bought the blueberries, I also bought these
To be more specific, I bought two of these because they were buy one, get one free and I have a bunch left
so when I ran across this recipe on Pioneer Woman (& Tasty Kitchen),
I thought it would be perfect

I thought it looked uber yummy and would use some of my tomatoes.
In addition, my opinion about scallops is: Hand 'em over and nobody gets hurt!
So it really couldn't be more perfect.

I'm also planning to make burgers this weekend...fancy burgers.

Inspired by these at Twisted Root Burger Co...

Last week I also bought some ground buffalo (did you know it is leaner than chicken?). I plan to grill it up and dress it with Hatch green chilies, cheese and guacamole. My mouth is watering right now thinking about it!

Finally, I plan to make some Easter cookies this weekend (if the lazy bug doesn't set in)

{Happy Friday!}

Update: I was really looking forward to those burgers and making bunny cookies this weekend; however, I'm sorry to report that I just made the pasta & scallops for supper and have died and gone to heaven!

Your muffins look yummy! I saw that scallops recipe on Pioneer Woman & the only thing that kept me from fixing them was no fresh seafood in Nocona.

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
