Well, guess what?! We made it!! Happy FRIDAY & a BIG TGIF to you 😀
Thank you so much for all of your encouraging words on my last post regarding my Humira injections- you guys always know how to make a girl smile 🙂
I don’t know about you, but I have certain blogs that I know will just put me in a good mood. One of them is Mama’s Pea’s blog- Peas & Thank you. I am POSITIVE that you have probably already heard of her blog & you probably love it too! I actually will ‘save up’ a few posts in my Google reader just so that I can have a few of her posts to read..I just love them that much. I feel like I’m reading a story & she is HILARIOUS! 😀 I CANNOT wait for her book to be released, I will probably just curl up on the couch & read the whole thing in one night.
While I was reading her posts today, I happened to stumble upon a recipe for Apple Spice Coffee Cake. I LOVE coffee cake. I remember when I was younger & my Mom would occassionally get the Entenmann’s crumb coffee cake for her Bible study class. After Sunday school I would always hussle my way up to her classroom in hopes that there would be a piece left over. And, I hate to admit this, but I would scoop out all of the remaining crumbs that were left in the pan. Oh ya, I really liked it…that much 😉
When I saw Mama Pea’s recipe, I just knew that I HAD to try it. I know anything that she creates HAS to be good! I have tried many of her recipes & love them all 🙂 (& so does the mister..especially the Pumpkin Spice Latte)
Apple Spice Cake

…or maybe it could just be part of a peanut butter addiction 😉
I don’t see this coffee cake lasting very long…
I hope you have a great day! I am looking forward to just RELAXING this weekend. We have been go-go-go every weekend for the last couple of months, we are just going to kind of hang out at the house & catch up on Dexter 😀 …with a few wedding things thrown in here & there 😉 Sounds like a PERFECT weekend to me!
Did you have a favorite breakfast food when you were growing up??
Mine was definitely any Entenmann’s baked good…or Pop Tarts.
