6 week Bran Muffins

This is one of those recipes that just reminds me of grandma's house.  It's so simple and makes for easy mornings!  You make a huge thing of batter once and put it in the fridge and it lasts 6 WEEKS!  Then you just bake however much you want and it's perfect for quick mornings!

What you need:
  • 1 - 15 ounce package raisin bran cereal
  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 5 tespoons baking soda
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 4 beaten eggs
  •  1 cup melted shortening
  • 1 quart buttermilk

Pur raisin bran in very large mixing bowl.

Sift together 5 cups flour, 2 teaspoons salt, 5 teaspoons baking soda and add to cereal.
Add 3 cups sugar, mix all dry ingredients together.

Beat 4 eggs and add to mixture.

Add melted shortening (1cup) to mixture and buttermilk (1 quart/4 cups).  (tip: if you don't have buttermilk, add 1 Tablespoon of white vinegar per cup of milk) 

Mix all ingredients together.

Grease and fill muffin cups 2/3 of the way full.  Bake 12-15 minutes at 400 degrees.

All leftover batter can stay in fridge (covered) for up to 6 weeks! Enjoy!!

DIY pottery barn sign

Have you seen this super cute "EAT" sign at Pottery Barn? Well, it's $49 and that seems a little steep for 3 wooden letters!

Soo, I went to Hobby Lobby and for about $10 got the 3 letters, acrylic red paint, and paint brush.

I started painting away. Be sure to get the sides and don't set it in wet paint, you then get newspaper stuck to the back.

Looks pretty good I think!!

Goodwill table

So I'm embarking on a new little adventure of goodwill. It's great repurposing old items. Soo, while looking for dressers for our master bedroom I found this cute little table for $15.

So, we cleaned it up, sanded it down, put some epoxy in the cracks, sanded that, painted it. Sanded the edges and look - a cute little table!!

I love it. Our "half bathroom" is like the size of a bedroom so it needed something to fill the space! What do you think?
