From Pinterest to Real Life…and I guess we’re back to real life…

I don’t know about you, but my brain has been on a holiday all week!  It was fun to play and relax and get odds and ends projects done around the house – many of which couldn’t have happened without Pinterest!

I don’t even know how I came upon this Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake recipe, but it looked so divine, I had to give it a lil makeover and get it in the oven the very morning I found it.  I used half whole wheat flour, agave in place of flour, and Greek yogurt in place of Buttermilk.  Pretty easy replacements and still delicious.  Oh, I also used orange zest instead of lemon simply because that is what I had on hand, but lemon would be just as delicious and healthy!




Makes: 12 servings
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Cream butter with lemon zest and agave until light and fluffy.
12 cup Unsalted Butter, room temperature
23 cup Raw Agave
2 teaspoons Lemon Zest, or orange zest
Step 2
Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Meanwhile, toss the blueberries with ¼ cup of flour, then whisk together the remaining flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
1 Egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup White Flour
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Salt
2 cups Blueberries
Step 3
Add the flour mixture to the batter a little at a time, alternating with the buttermilk. Fold in the blueberries.
12 cup Greek Yogurt, or buttermilk
Step 4
Grease a 9-inch square baking pan (or something similar) with butter or coat with non-stick spray. Spread batter into pan. Sprinkle batter with remaining tablespoon of sugar. Bake for 35 minutes. Check with a toothpick for doneness. If necessary, return pan to oven for a couple of more minutes. (Note: Baking for as long as 10 minutes more might be necessary.) Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving.
Step 5
NOTE - If using Greek yogurt instead of buttermilk, the batter will be thicker and take a little longer to cook.

This week I also started making over our basement playroom.  My husband got a recliner for his Birthday/Christmas, so the loveseat from the living room is now in the playroom (now I’ll go down there!).  Our playroom is in the cold basement, so I wanted to bring some earthy, yet fun warmth to it.  I’m going for the trees/owls/birds theme.  Here is the Pinterest inspiration for the room.

I’m hoping to have mine done by the end of the month!  Well, not just the tree, but the entire room.  Part of my daughters birthday gift (yeah – we’re all, except Landon, in December) is a princess dress-up nook.  I can’t wait to get it all done.  So grateful for Pinterest to help me pull it all together.
