What I am loving this week: The Crown & King Arthur Flour Jammy Bits


So. This poor blog, ammirite?

It was my “resolution” to blog more, not even necessarily about photo sessions and photography related stuff, but just… stuff. And, before January ends I think I should actually produce something! Anything!

So, here is my idea: A couple months ago for my birthday, I had a fantastic girls weekend away. I gave all my attending friends gifts – but not just any gifts, it was a selection of “my favorite things”. And it was so fun to share my favorite finds with them…they loved it, and so I thought I might share my “favorite things” with you here too!

So, what am I totally into this week?

First. The Crown on Netflix. I know this isn’t a secret treasure… in fact, I think I am a couple months late to this one. I watched Season 1 last year when it came out but hadn’t had time to devote to a TOTAL Netflix binge, as I knew this would be worthy of, until now.  So good. So, so good. The only bad thing… waiting an entire year before season 3 comes out! But, rumors are already circulating about what and who will appear in the next season (one word: Diana).

So, if you haven’t checked it out…what are you waiting for? And if you haven’t yet watched Season 1. I am so jealous, that means you have TWO seasons of binging to do! And with a rainy weekend coming up, I can’t think of a better way to spend a couple days!

Next up, Jammy Bits by King Arthur Flour.

If you like baking… or eating… you need to check out the King Arthur Flour website. I am not kidding when I say I can (and do) browse the catalog regularly, dreaming of the things I can make using the amazing ingredients (and mixes!) they sell. Recently I bought some of these jammy bits that have long tempted me. I bought the Apple Cinnamon, but they also have raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, peach and apricot. Because I was feeling lazy, I just bought a generic blueberry muffin mix from the grocery store, the type that has a can of blueberries, and instead of adding the can of blueberries I added around a half a cup of these delicious nuggets. OH MY. I LOVED them. Even my picky 4 year old loved them… and that’s saying a lot.

In fact. I bought another muffin mix yesterday and as soon as I finish this blog, I think I will go make more! The jammy bits get soft and chewy. I am thinking they would be really good with some sort of streusel topping too. Hmmm….OK, I am making myself hungry now. Off to go bake some more….
