Cherry Almond Muffins

I remember growing up my grandmother had a cherry tree in her backyard and she always had extra cherries in the Spring and Summer to share with us when we visited. Now that I am getting settled in our own place, I am trying new recipes for my son and myself. My son loves muffins and instead of buying muffins at the store, I wanted to start baking again. We recently made a batch of Cherry Almond Muffins and they barely lasted a week!

We Made Small Upgrades With Two Items We Use Almost Everyday

My son and I use to have to move every few years. Our most recent move was in December of 2018 and I’m confident it will be our last move for many years!  Each time we have had to move, I find myself making small upgrades with everyday items!

For the last few months, I have been walking and jogging on my treadmill, pilates and yoga.
