Tuesday Cook Off ~ Doughnut Muffins

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Doughnut Muffins

My Baby Pajamas recipe of the week is Doughnut Muffins.  I was looking for new ideas for breakfast for my boys and husband when I came across these doughnut muffins.  My boys love doughnuts and muffins so I thought I would give them a try.  Plus, they are sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, which I love 🙂  First, I have to say these are the easiest thing to make!  Plus, they are so unbelievably good!  The recipe made 11 doughnut muffins but can vary depending how you fill your muffin pan.  I want to thank How to: Simplify Blog for the recipe!

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

For the muffins:

  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk

For the coating:

  • 1/4 -1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a muffin tin.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
  3. Combine oil, sugar, egg and milk in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients and stir only to combine.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. While muffins are baking, melt butter in a small bowl. In another small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Shake muffins out of the muffin tin while the muffins are still hot.
  6. Dip muffins in the melted butter and then into the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Place on a wire rack and allow to cool.

National Chocolate Cake Day

National Chocolate Cake Day!

My Baby Pajamas is excited that it’s National Chocolate Cake Day.   That alone is the best reason to bake a cake today.   Now my boys are not a big fan of icing.   In fact, either am I or my husband.  It’s just too sweet for our taste.   So with that being said, I decided to go to our favorite chocolate cake without icing.  It’s the easiest cake to make and then you just sprinkle with powered sugar.

Here is the recipe:  Thank you Recipe Girl!

Ingredients:

1 box Devil’s food chocolate cake mix
1 small box instant chocolate pudding mix
4 large eggs
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
12 ounces chocolate chips
16 ounces sour cream
powdered sugar, for dusting

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease bundt cake pan.

2. In large bowl, use an electric mixer to mix chocolate cake mix, pudding, eggs, water and oil until smooth. Use a rubber spatula to fold in sour cream and chips. Stir until the sour cream is incorporated.

3. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

4. Cool thoroughly before removing from pan. To remove, invert onto serving dish and tap firmly on pan. If necessary, gently run a plastic knife around the inner circle of the pan.

5. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving for a nice presentation.

footie pajamas

Did you know that the human foot is one of the most vulnerable parts of the body when it comes to cold?  Now picture a infant or toddler who does not sleep with blankets…COLD FEET!!  Footie pajamas are such a great idea for infant and toddlers when it comes to keeping them warm through the night.  I know as an adult during the winter, my feet are the last part of my body that warm up.  A lot of times I wear socks to bed and I am sure a lot of you do too.  Now as a mom, I have put socks on my kids when they were young and before the night is over the socks are off and tossed somewhere in the crib.  If you put footie pajamas on your little one…no socks tossed in the crib!

Nowadays, companies are manufacturing better and more comfortable footie pajamas.  No longer are your only options fleece ITCHY footie pajamas.  My Baby Pajamas offers a great selection of footie pajamas.   We have organic footie pajamas, which are made from 100% organic (chemical free) cotton.   However, when you buy a pajama that is not flame resistant, the pajamas need to fit very snug.  Our best selling footie pajamas are the Kicky Pants Bamboo footie pajamas.   If you have not tried the bamboo pajamas yet, all I can say is you are missing out 🙂

Bamboo is an eco-friendly, sustainable crop that grows wild without the aid of fertilizers or pesticides.  Bamboo fabric is naturally antibacterial, antifungal and antistatic.  Bamboo absorbs water 3-4 times better than cotton, keeping skin comfortable, rather than sticky.  And, bamboo stays 2-3 degrees cooler in the hot weather and 2-3 degrees warmer in the cold weather.   Who doesn’t want there infant or toddler 2-3 degrees warmer in the winter when they have no blanket!

Another advantage to the footie pajama besides warmth is style.   Designers have made the cutest styles and designs in footie pajamas.   The footie pajama is a great option for day clothes during the winter for your infant.   If footie pajamas were this cute when my boys were little, they would live in footie pajamas 🙂

Be sure to check out our great selection footie pajamas at My Baby Pajamas.   We are also having a SALE.  Save 25% off your entire order and all your footie pajamas.

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Skillet Baked Ziti with Italian Sausage

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Skillet Baked Ziti with Italian Sausage

My Baby Pajamas recipe of the week is Skillet Baked Ziti with Italian Sausage.   I found this recipe on Pinterest (by the way, I just LOVE Pinterest) and my husband asked me to make some good old fashion comfort food.  It has been cold here in Phoenix, AZ and comfort food hits the spot!  So I went to Pinterest and started searching around.  He then asked if I would make my baked ziti.   Being Italian, I have all these old family memories of eating mostaccioli at holiday times and images of pasta noodles went flashing through my head.  I wanted to try something different and so I found this great skillet baked ziti.   I can honestly say I don’t know if I will ever make baked ziti the old fashion way again.   This recipe was delicious!  My husband loved it (and already asked me to make it again) and my boys loved it too.

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

My Baby Pajamas recipe of the week is Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread.  This past week after guest had left from the holidays, I noticed I had bananas that were just too ripe.   So the best thing to do with too ripe bananas is make banana bread!!  My youngest son loves banana bread 🙂  He was excited that I was going to make it for him.   But I wanted to try something new.  I went to Pinterest and found this fabulous recipe!  The cinnamon was not over powering at all.   I will say that if you are going to make it and not eat the whole loaf in one sitting, use plastic wrap to store instead of a air tight container.  We found that the cinnamon was a little soggy the next day.
