Yummy Blueberry Buckwheat Muffins!

Blueberry Buckwheat Muffins
1 ¼ cup buckwheat
1 c whole wheat flour
1T baking soda
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¾ cup vanilla coconut milk
¼ cup applesauce
1 cup blueberries
¼ cup agave nectar

Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients.
Blend both together – batter will be thick & lumpy.
Spoon into greased muffin tins (makes 12).
Bake in 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
I eat mine with a little Earth Balance spread on them!
Paper liners will stick to the muffins.
And I like to use Bob’s Red Mill Buckwheat Cereal
and grind it a couple of times in the food processor
before baking with it.

My Garden Green

We've spent the last two years, tearing up turf and creating our own little secret garden.  The best part about it is that it needs little watering.  We've planted mostly perennials & native plants that go with the flow and hardly ever need a drink from us. Hopefully we will be installing our homemade water barrel this weekend. Talk about your water conservation!
And to top it off - the birdbath & chair are rescued from the trashman. 
More to come on the homemade water barrel!

Happy 4th of July!

Wishing everyone a safe and fun 4th of July!
Looks like my posts will be tapering off as summer hits Ohio full swing.  Us Northerners know how short the good weather is around here, so the little ladies and I are taking full advantage. 
Which means 99% outside time for us and 1% computer time for me the next few months!
It's this time of year that I'm always reminded how proud I am to be an American.  To have the freedom to say what I want, protest when necessary, and as a woman the liberty to go to school, vote, and work.
And I'd like to say THANK YOU to all of our military.
Whether I believe in the wars or not, it is because of these brave
men and women that we are and remain free!
Off to the parade we go!
