Where My Muffin Tops At?

Hey everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the almost-summer and supporting your local farmers market. I still have a few more weeks until the farmers market starts up, but I cannot wait! I recently made muffins, but I disappointed because they don’t have tops and come out like cupcakes. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to add to the recipe so I will have enough batter for there to be tops on the muffins? A few more weeks until I am out of school so I an start posting (and commenting) a lot more.

Tempeh Burritos

(From my cookbooklet: Powered By Plants)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder (or more for added spice)
3 tablespoons salsa
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice (you can use lime)

Combine all ingredients in a shallow bowl big enough to fit all the tempeh and stir.

8 ounces of tempeh (1 package)
6 corn or whole-wheat tortillas

Cut tempeh in half length wise. Place the tempeh in a pan with enough water to cover and simmer for ten minutes. Remove the tempeh and pat dry with a paper towel. Cut the tempeh in strips 1/2 an inch thick. Add the tempeh strips to the marinade and stir to coat the pieces. Marinate at room temperature for an hour, turning the tempeh at least once.

In an oiled frying pan on medium high heat, cook tempeh for 30 seconds. Turn the heat down to low and cook, covered, for 3 minutes. Remove cover and use a spatula to flip the tempeh and cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes, or until the tempeh is browned. Remove tempeh from pan.

Heat tortillas in a dry skillet until heated and soft. Fill with tempeh and your choice of fillings, fold your burrito, and enjoy!

Can You Believe I Have Not Had a Cookie In A Year? Yeah, I Had To Change That

I have been craving good old chocolate chips cookies and I finally made some that my whole family devoured. I get out of school on June 20th so be prepared for a lot of food experiments once the summer is in full swing.

Pasta with tomato sauce

Always a classic

Sitr Fry

Black bean burgers


This is a Powered by Plants recipe. It amazes me how much these resemble hamburgers. I used some Anne's Smokie Maple BBQ sauce.

Tofu and veggie skewers

Chocolate chip cookies

This recipe is from Eats Like A Bird (thank you so much). These cookies are just the way I like them, crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

So moist and yummy!
