Today I ordered a flat of Sedum. I love the variation of color and the fact it's heat hardy. I'm jumping the gun, but it feels good to order flowers early! Once they arrive in April, I'll keep the flat moist and warm until it's safe to transplant into the dirt. Years ago I had several areas filled with Sedum in between rocky spots, but it seemed to have disappeared. I would suspect the rabbits ate it, but they don't like it, so I'm at a loss for explanation's on what the heck happened to the creepy crawly forest green plant.
I made mini these yesterday afternoon. They turned out perfect and I've eaten more than my share. I changed the recipe some. I added dried cherries instead of blueberries and used almond milk and raw honey. Use fresh nutmeg if you have it. I froze half of the muffins so that I can easy grab for breakfast.
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- dash of nutmeg
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp flaxseeds
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 cups cooked quinoa (approx. 1/2 cup uncooked, cooked with 1 cup water)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted (could also use canola oil)
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar (could also use honey or agave nectar)
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 cup milk (I used almond milk)
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- If you don’t already have cooked quinoa on hand, add 1/2 cup of quinoa and add it to 1 cup boiling water. Cook as directed on package, about 10-12 minutes covered, until done.
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease muffin pan. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, salt, flax, and chia.
- In medium bowl, combine mix the quinoa, oil, sugar (or honey/agave), brown sugar and milk.
- Add the wet ingredients into they dry, stirring only enough to evenly distribute.
- Fold in blueberries. Batter will be thick.
- Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan. They don’t rise significantly, so I recommend filling them to their tops.
- Bake in preheated oven 20-22minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into a muffin center.
- Let cool for 10 minutes, then cool completely on wire rack.

The soap studio is brimming with soap! I'll be transporting the fresh cut bars to the soap shop on water street. I have a large basket filled with new items and lots of put together items that I'll be working on this week. I'm designing some new packaging for an old product and wrapping the petite soaps for Easter Paquets.
Enjoy caring and sharing days.
With all good wishes,
