Red White and Blueberry Overnight Oats - with Red Raspberries, Shredded Coconut, and Fresh Blueberries! This easy breakfast recipe will start your day off on the right foot and keep you full!!

Let’s be real, the days are getting longer, but that means I am cramming even more into them now than I was. How about you? My mornings start at 4am, so that I have time to wake up, walk the dog, take a shower, get ready for work, BLOG, try to eat something before I go, and kiss Ben if he is home. There really isn’t much time to enjoy the mornings, and this is all so I can make it to work by 7. *side note* Dear Lawd, help us when little toddling k-words enter the picture!!

So I need breakfast. I always have been a breakfast eater. It used to be bagels, cream cheese and turkey – back when I was in high school and was running 5 miles a day and had volleyball practice. Now, I need to be a little more sensible. But still need something fast. Enter overnight oats! And these patriotic ones at that! These red white and blueberry overnight oats have fresh fruit, shredded coconut, a touch of white chocolate – just because – and blueberries for days! I can run out the door on time now

Cinnamon Raisin Streusel Muffins - These are the perfect way to start your day!

Last night was not exactly one of my best sleeps… someone who will not be named, but who’s name begins with “H” and ends in “uckleberry”, couldn’t decide if he wanted to be on the bed, or off the bed, on the floor, or on the pile of dirty clothes we forgot to wash. It was  too hot, he was too cold, he was so tired after his evening of chasing the croquet balls around the yard and stealing them mid game that he passed out on the car ride home from my folks. But then when it was actually time to sleep – oh, you have to be up at 4am for work, mawm hooman? Good luck with that!

Please tell me I’m not the only one didn’t get nearly enough sleep last night. Can we just have a muffin and try again

Triple Chocolate Eclairs - The perfect chocolate fix, and a recipe that is easy to make at home!!

The gardening bug has hit me hard. It’s usually this time every year that I start to get that itch, and since it is finally hitting the mid-70’s in Seattle, I played a little hooky on Friday afternoon and went home to start prepping my garden – and take a nap. I’m not a monster.

It really was a spectacular weekend in Seattle and I was determined to make the most of it. Even if that meant a nap every day and gardening in between. And fine, a little baking thrown in too for kicks.
