Brunch Yogurt Streusel Muffins and Baby Craft Day!

Oh ya'll there's nothing I love more than a savory brunch and some girl time! So last week my friend Molly came over and we had the ultimate girl's day: brunch, chick flick, and crafting! My idea of the perfect brunch includes 4 things:
1. fresh, juicy fruit
2. hot out of the oven sweet muffins
3. savory quiche or casserole
4. mimosas
Unfortuantely, Molly and I are both preggers so number 4 didn't make the cut but I made us Strawberry Lemon Slushies instead! (Puree a can of frozen lemonade with frozen strawberries and 1 cup water. Freeze for 4 hours than mix in ginger ale! Perfect for the kiddos or your pregnant friends that are missing out on the bubbily mimosas!)
My muffins turned out to be the bomb diggity so check out my recipe below and don't forget to view our adorable baby crafts!~

Ingredients:

For muffins:
  • 4 tbsp (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  •  1/2 tsp salt

For topping:
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

 Line your muffin tin. I used my adorable $1 Paula Deen liner's from Michaels!
To make the streusel topping:
Combine all streusel ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
 Place the bowl in the freezer.
Preheat the oven to 375.
For the muffins:
Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together in a bowl.
In a different large bowl, whisk butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and yogurt.
Combine the dry and wet ingredients together and mix well.
The batter is ready!
I like to use a medium ice cream scoop to fill each muffin cup with batter.
Take your streusel topping out of the freezer and stir until crumbily.
Scatter topping on top of each muffin.
These bad boys are gonna be tasty!
Bake for about 17 minutes, until golden.
Hot out of the oven!

I added beautiful ripe strawberries with powerder sugar and Quiche Lorraine
 to our brunch menu and we were ready to dig in!

Crafting Time!
 Molly made a baby tutu! Seriously the Cutest. Thing. Ever! Total cost: about $5!
 Hair bows galore. Thank goodness we're having baby girls!
 I made a decorated light switch cover and baby AVA name blocks
simply using scrapbook paper and mod podge!
 I can't wait to use these in my maternity pictures next week! And they match her nursery perfectly~
My first successful craft project...an Ava name sign to go over her crib. I just stapled fabric to canvas, painted wood letters lavender and used mod podge to glue to the board. Then decorated with flowers! I love it!

  1. Foods are very much essential for our babies; therefore, we should take very good care of their diet and nutrition. But, we should take care of their taste also, as we know babies are getting bored with the same kind of regular foods. So, they need variation in their diet and nutrition. So in baby shower programs and other occasion, we are starting experimenting with different delicious foods. Here from this article, we can get some good collection of delicious foods.
