Ingenious Pinterest//Berries

Where did our inspiration come from before we invented Pinterest?
(Besides Mendelssohn, Agatha Christie, and Cheesecake of course.)

I joined a couple months ago, and have probably been on for a few  minutes (ahem) every day since. :) (Know the feeling?)

These are some of the ingenious snacks I have found using the superstar fruits,
berries.

method>>Dip them in Greek Yogurt and freeze!
///////////

method>>Stack them with brown rice cakes and whipped Greek Yogurt
///////////
method>>Stuff them with both dark and white chocolate chips!
///////////


This is what I mean by pinterest,
Hmmmm, can you relate?

Coffee Cake Muffins//Guest Post by Kelsie!

Why hello there! I’m Kelsie, and I blog on over at Bella Ragazza!
I’m a homeschooled high school student with a love for chocolate. Seriously, chocolate is the best.:) I’m little weird at times and pretty much awkward at all times, something that wouldn’t be too hard to figure out if you read my blog.:) I like to blog about my personal fashion, my awkwardness, food, and everyday life. I play the violin, and think that classical music is awesome. I have lived in multiple states and I love to travel, I dream about going all over Europe and having the opportunity to meet new people and experience different cultures. I’m also a foodie, I love to make it, and eat it. And coffee? Well let’s just say that stuff is awesome too. I like to read, some of my favorites are Jane Eyre, Love Comes Softly, and Huckleberry Finn. I have one sister, Mikayla, we are best friends and I couldn’t imagine life without her! Most importantly, I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. I strive to my best to serve Him daily, and I live by faith in Him. I have a heart for missions and serving others. I have so much loved this journey I have started called blogging, and hope to get to know you all more!

I'm including a yummy recipe just for you guys, because you're all awesome. These muffins are amazing! They taste like donuts, so be ready to have more than one!
