"My dad always said that there's 24 usable hours in every day."

...sigh...i ♥ empire records. Every day should be Rex Manning day, eh Jeep? So most people would be tired after a long day of work, right? getting there before 9...leaving after 6:30 and only thinking about going home and resting their weary head... what does mouse do? she goes home and bakes muffins. why? because she's CRAZY! that and I so don't want to ruin my week and wanted to make good treats and not be tempted by timbits and office candy dishes or starbucks runs. No no! I will be strong! So I made some Apple Cinnamon Streusel Muffins and Chocobrans to curb any temptations I would have during the week. I was ACTUALLY going to make corn muffins and irish soda bread too, but apparently the black hole (a.k.a. Dominion - btw, i am not missing anything today...that i notice.) didn't have buttermilk. Now I'm not sure if last time I made soda bread I purchased it THERE or somewhere else but I continue to be miffed by downtown grocery stores and am inching closer and closer to moving back to the beaches - HMMPH! But back to these muffins. For the life of me, I can not find the recipe on that darn site, otherwise I'd link y'all up because they're not that bad. I'm quite looking forward to it as an afternoon treat today. I'm telling you - making your own treats is the way to go....even if you have to stay up late and get covered in flour. besides, helps you sleep better :)

oh, you're so good! making your own treats!!! way to go!

I really can't keep ANY treats in any quantity at home, because I will not rest until they are all gone... *sigh* especially if I bake something, which really never happens... :(

You can easily make your own buttermilk! Just add a little (1tbsp/cup) lemon juice or white vinegar to skim milk and let sit for 5 minutes

You rock! Yes, you can make your own buttermilk in 'times like these' when you can't find any! You'll actually see it curdle before your very eyes. Muffins sound yummy though! WTG on the preventative approach!

I loved that movie. So many good scenes. One of my favorites, love or hate her, is when Renee sings "Sugar High." So much fun. Thanks for reminding me.
