Did you know that there has been a theatrical production going on right here in blog land? That's right! As many of you know who stop by often, Charli and Me are avid supporters of the fine arts and especially the theater. My dear friend Anita, at http://wwwcastlescrownscottages.blogspot.com/ has written and produced an amazing play called 'Good Night Sweet Prince' staring the illustrious, brave, and very handsome terrier Monsieur Balzac. Bonnie, who is one of our fellow blogger's has assisted in writing the final act. It has been playing at the 'Le Petit Theatre De Chimeres' right here in blog land. It's not to late to stop by and visit the archives on Anita's blog to follow this wonderful play. Charli and I absolutely love it! Therefore, we are nominating Anita and Monsieur Balzac for a blog land Tony Award. Please stop by and I'm sure you will agree that it is much deserved. Thank you Anita for producing such a wonderful and outstanding play!.......

Recently I found a wonderful recipe in 'Harvest Baking' that I would like to share with all of you. It's not only delicious, but also healthy because it's chock full of nutrients and fiber....
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup uncooked quick or old-fashioned oatmeal
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 medium (2 cups) apples, pealed, cored, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 1/2 cup grated carrots (You can buy the pre-shredded)
3/4 cups dried cherries, coarsely chopped
1/4 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
3 eggs
1/2 cup Land O Lakes butter, melted
1/2 cup applesauce
2 teaspoons vanilla
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper baking cups into 18 muffin pan cups or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Combine flour, sugar, oatmeal, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in large bowl. Add apples, carrots, dried cherries, and nuts. Stir until well mixed.
Beat eggs in medium bowl with a wire whisk. Stir in melted butter, applesauce, and vanilla. Add egg mixture to flour mixture. Stir until just moistened.
Evenly divide batter among muffin cups. Bake 18 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes and then place on a cooling rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Let me put on the coffee and tea. I'm so excited for all of you to try one of these.....
Happy Tea and friendship Tuesday everyone!
I hope you have a wonderful day ♥
Thank you so much for all of the kind comments you leave on my blog.......
With warmest regards, Carol

Hello Carol!

I didn't get a chance to visit earlier as I slept early LOL Oh you know, with timezones and all.

HHHmmmm a Tony award here in blogland. I think that would be a first too!

Love the muffins. I'm always a little scared when it comes to baking. I did once and the edges were burned! (although the parts I salvaged were still yummy) :-)And so what you saw in my post was just steaming :-)But I'm not losing hope though. Cause see, every time I get to see yummy recipes like these muffins - makes me real sad as I can't make them. Love how they look in the basket.

You are ready for Fall - as is your blog! What a makeover. I like it.


(good to see comp problem was fixed!)
