We got a LOT of strawberries we got from strawberry picking last Saturday. The story can be read here. I love snacking strawberry like there's no end of it. At least it looks like that until now These days seem like perfect days for me since I have no worry about school, although I am worried about finding internship for summer, but I already done my part and nothing else I can do. On the other hand, hubby is having intense time finishing his thesis. I never saw him worried like this. So, I offer myself to do his chores. He doesn't let me do all of his chore, I cook and bake new stuffs instead. I can't help him doing what he is doing, but I hope what I do for him can cheer him up, energize him, and speed him to finish his thesis.

Bake for 25 minutes or until the muffins are springy but firm.
I've been so aggravated by mice. We've been so busy and I didn't think I would bake until school is over. So, we bought bread from a store and kept it in our kitchen cabinet. I had known that mice had invaded our territory, but never thought that they could reach the upper cabinet. When I was going to get something from that cabinet, I found their droppings everywhere and found that our bread got chewed. I was furious while cleaning the cabinet then locked it with kitchen utensils since the magnetic lock is broken. We got 4 mice this week but I think there are still some in there. After doing some experiments of places that are mouse free to save our food, I felt like baking something simple. Just for hubby's mid afternoon snack.

1/2 tsp salt

A week ago, I bought wrong apples from grocery store since I was in a hurry. I meant to get organic apples, but the ones I got were different ones. Since then bag of apple was almost forgotten. I came with idea of making apple muffin with blueberry sauce that our friend gave last Easter.
I didn't do a good job at making this muffin. I think I beat the dough too long so the dough has bread texture instead of cake-y one. Yet, none of my homemade food will be thrown away
Preheat oven at 400F. In a mixing bowl, beat: 1 cup Sour cream
1/2 cup applesauce/blueberry sauce
2 Tbs Olive oil
Shift: 2 cup All-purpose flour
3 tsp Baking powder
1/4 c powdered sugar (omit this if the fruit sauce is sweet enough) 1/4 tsp salt
Add gradually to sour cream mixture
Add: 1 1/2 cup Chopped apple
Fold until combined. I think do not over mix the ingredients, or the muffin will have bread texture and chewy.
Fill muffin cups with muffin batter. Bake 15 minutes or until muffins are golden brown.
