Gluten Free Cornbread Muffins

Before our son was born we ate cornbread all the time. Whenever we were eating chili, stews, BBQ, some soups, etc. there was cornbread as the side. But when we had to go gluten free for our son the cornbread side dish quickly disappeared. 

When we lived in Georgia our gluten free options were a lot better so I started finding a lot of gluten free cornbread mixes but none of them were the same. I tried many gluten free cornbread recipes online but none of them were that great, granted finding a good gluten free all purpose flour makes all the difference. 

Anyways, after a couple of years I tweaked recipes to suite our tastes and this is how I have been making it ever since. Now if you like traditional southern style cornbread without any sugar in it then this recipe probably isn't for you. I like my cornbread to be somewhat sweeter and despite my hubby being a born and raised Georgia boy he also prefers the sweeter cornbread. 

I prefer to make cornbread muffins because they cook quicker and they're already portioned out for everyone so all I have to do is pop them out of the muffin pan and pass them around the table. But if you want to make cornbread in a pan then by all means go for it, just know that the cooking time will be longer. 

The first step is to preheat your oven to 400 degrees and gather all of your ingredients.

Then I measure and pour all of my dry ingredients into a medium to large size mixing bowl. 

Using a whisk, combine all of your dry ingredients then add the wet ingredients. 

Use your whisk and mix all of the ingredients until well combined. The consistency will be similar to a pancake batter. 

Grease a 12 tin muffin pan with non stick cooking spray. Fill each muffin tin with about a 1/4 cup of batter. 

Place muffin pan into preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. You can use a butter knife or toothpick to insert into the center of a muffin and if it comes back clean then you know your muffins are cooked through. I baked mine for 20 minutes but we live at high altitude so those of you who don't will likely find that your muffins bake quicker than mine. Let them cool slightly before carefully removing from pan.

Serve and enjoy!

Kid's Bathroom Makeover on a Budget!

Remodeling can be SO expensive! I sometimes feel the saying "champagne taste on a beer budget" 100% applies to me. Being the HGTV junkie that I am, I watch all of these people say they're doing things "on a budget" and think their "budget makeover" is my "champagne taste". Even though I do like the nice things and there are a lot of things I don't think you should skimp on the quality, it is definitely possible to have nice things and not pay an arm and a leg for them. Shopping the clearance section at home improvement stores is one of the ways we save a lot of money when doing projects. You might not get exactly what you initially wanted but as long as you have an open mind and a general idea of your design you'll be able to find what you need and sometimes it'll be even better than your original plan. The biggest way to save money on any remodel is to do as much as you can yourself. Paying a contractor or handyman adds up qu

Spicy Breakfast Burritos

I've been making my hubby breakfast items to grab out of the freezer on his way out the door for work. I've made breakfast sandwiches with Canadian bacon, egg and cheese. There's been two different kinds of breakfast burritos, one with turkey breakfast sausage and one with chorizo. These chorizo breakfast burritos are hands down his favorite so that's what I plan on continuing making him until he gets sick of them and wants something else.  Making your own "convience" foods is not only cheaper but it's typically a lot healthier. You can adjust ingredients to your liking or honestly with whatever is on sale. If you don't want to use chorizo you can easily swap for a different meat like turkey or pork breakfast sausage. I've seen that Jennie-O makes a turkey chorizo which would definitely be healthier and lower in fat but in typical Wyoming fashion I can't find it anywhere!  Depending on how cheap you can find the ingredients the average pric

Whole House Paint Color Scheme

Choosing a paint color for a room in your house can be difficult, deciding on a whole house paint color scheme is even harder! When our offer on our current house was accepted by the seller I immediately started looking at different paint color options for every single room. I'm pretty sure I changed my mind about a thousand times. My poor sister probably got paint color images texted to her every hour. I even had a note on my phone that had each room categorized with what I wanted to do with it, which of course has been edited daily. I seriously became obsessive. So if you are sitting there changing your mind and looking at a million different color swatches on your computer or phone not knowing which one would look the best in whichever room you are attempting to update next I am here to help! My best piece of advice is to narrow down a few paint colors you keep going back to and search online for reviews of that color from other bloggers and/or interior designers. This helped
