Raspberry Streusel Muffins

If you add the word "streusel" to any recipe, then I am a fan.  This particular streusel has oats in it, and it is deeeee-licious!

The very best possible way to make these muffins is with raspberries from your own garden that you picked that very morning . . . but let's be realistic, people.  We don't all have raspberries.  For those of us who do, they are only ripe in July/August.  For those of us who 1) do have raspberries that are 2) ripe in said months, then 3) our kids have probably already eaten them off the vine despite our repeated warnings and threats to leave some "for jam."  For those of us who 1) do have raspberries and 2) it is July or August and 3) our kids haven't eaten them off the vine . . . well, "we" might have gone outside in the morning with intentions of picking a few cups for muffins, only to make the mistake of popping one into "our" mouths and then ravenously eating 3 or 4 cups of ripe raspberries by ourselves and then 4) decide to let our kids have cold cereal for breakfast instead of homemade, hand-picked raspberry muffins from the heart.

I need to have my husband make a flow chart of these options.

And my point is really this: frozen raspberries are delicious, and all I have ever used in this recipe.  {But I have big plans for this raspberry season . . . } Enjoy the pictures.  I promise you will love.

Wholesome American Goodness, people.
These muffins are easily in my top five favorite muffin recipes, along with Cinnamon Ripple and Huckleberry Cream.  Be sure to read all about kefir and conquer any recipe that calls for yogurt or sour cream or buttermilk.

Truman's No-Bake Cookies

No-bake cookies are the perfect "first cookie" for your kids to learn to make.  My son, Truman, actually learned to make these in his second grade class, with teacher par excellence, Mrs. Williams.  He came home with the recipe and couldn't wait to try it out.

Two years later, it's still his favorite thing to make.
What a handsome ten-year-old!
