Only 23 more school days until summer. If you’ve been with my blog for awhile, you already know about my love/hate relationship with summer vacation. Those first couple weeks are great, but the rest is just a continual test of my level of patience and creativity.
Summer provides my children with an abundant amount of free time, and that just isn’t a good thing. They have various distractions throughout the day in the form of sports, church and chores but it just isn’t enough. Summer break really makes me wish we lived on a farm where cows needed to be milked, manure scooped, hay bailed and chickens fed. That would help fulfill my belief that busy children = happy children = happy mother 🙂

Cinnamon Crumb Muffins

So unless any of my faithful readers have some farm work they can loan me for about 12 weeks, I will just bribe my kiddos to be good this summer by whipping up tasty treats like these muffins. That is an appropriate form of parenting isn’t it?

  • Yield: 10 muffins


  • 7 Tbs unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 2/3 C sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 1/2 C flour

  • 1 Tb butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 10 muffins cups with paper liners.
  2. In the bowl of your electric mixer with the flat beater, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat well until pale and smooth.
  3. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Add to the butter mixture in two additions, alternating with the buttermilk and vanilla. Stir just until evenly moist. The batter will be slightly lumpy. Evenly divide batter among muffin tins.

I think the Love and Logic parenting guys would be okay with a bribe. 🙂 My uncle has a farm in Ghent. I am sure there is some manure they could move around if they were really hurting for some busy work. Thanks for calling yesterday…such a great time talking with you. Happy Mother’s Day! I have looked to you as a wonderful mother whose example I love. Now I laugh because this past year I have a friend with her first baby and I am the mother she calls with her questions. What does this mean, Carole? Have I aged that much since we’ve met??!!
