First up and I'm kinda excited about this, (yes, total blog dork here), check out my newly designed Recipe Index and give a category a click. Yes, you see a list of food. Exciting. But, really exciting part for me if that it's totally automatic! So, when a new post is live, the recipe automatically gets listed in the proper category based on my labeling system. Pretty nifty, isn't it?
Before, I had to enter each one automatically. Which, wasn't too tough, however, I kinda would forget sometimes or miss stuff. This way..nothing is missed. I love it. Also, it was free. Took a little tech time on my part to get it done, but, sooo worth. If you are a food blogger and want to check out the instructions, just click here.
Let's talk muffins instead.
We love muffins for breakfast or for a snack at my house. They are easy to make, portable and easy to freeze for future meals. Works great.
These are one of our real favorites. They have some chocolate, some peanut butter and some oatmeal. They are just pretty darn awesome. A little sweet with a little healthy!
The perfect breakfast combo.
