Praline Apple Muffins

  • So this week has been a blur of all things.  I (for some reason) decided to take on a woodworking project.  I am very impulsive like that.  I think of something that would go well here or there in our house and I want it done right then.  So on Saturday my husband and I built a massive picnic table.

    It all turned out great until I found out that it was going to need to be sanded and stained.  🙁  I see why these things cost so much now.  Needless to say I stink at staining!!!  There are drip lines everywhere and that stuff dried so fast I couldn’t go back and fix anything.  UGHH.  It was a big learning lesson.  I haven’t decided if I should try this again or leave it to the people who actually know what they are doing.  Because (here is a little confession) I hate failing!!!!  Hate, hate, hate it.  Anyway on with life.

    These praline apple muffins were not a failure at least.  They are loaded with apple pieces and studded with pecans.  Drizzle some caramel sauce over them while still slightly warm and this is one treat that will not fail you!!
