My husband and I were married over nine years ago. I don’t remember a lot about that day but I do remember all of the songs we used for our ceremony and reception.
Walking down the aisle: Truthfully by Lisa Loeb
Walking out of the ceremony: I Believe in a Thing Called Love by The Darkness
Being introduced at the reception: Hey Ya! by Outkast
First dance: Let’s Stay Together by Al Green
I know. It’s quite an eclectic mix of songs. But at the time it was all ones we really liked.
If we were getting married today, this is the song I would want to be played for our first dance.
I love Sara Bareilles.
I sent this video to my husband yesterday and told him I Choose You.
He wrote back: Aw, thanks! There’s a Pokemon joke in there, somewhere.
To which I replied: Or a Ralph Wiggum one.
Yeah. We’re totally MFEO.
You know what else is MFEO? Muffins and streusel. Quite frankly, a muffin without streusel, a naked muffin if you will, is just not right.
Say no to naked muffins. (No innuendo intended.)
- (recipe adapted from King Arthur Flour)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup grated ube
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons almond milk
- ¼ cup coconut oil, melted (can substitute vegetable oil)
- 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup applesauce (can substitute 2 eggs, lightly beaten)
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
- 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
- To a large bowl add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt and stir to combine.
- To a medium bowl add ube, milk, coconut oil, vanilla, and applesauce. Whisk until thoroughly combined.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. DO NOT OVER MIX. The batter may look a little lumpy but that’s okay.
- In a small bowl combine streusel ingredients and mix together with a fork.
- Scoop batter into a lined muffin tin about 2/3 of the way full.
- Top with streusel.
- Put muffin tin in oven and immediately drop the heat to 400 degrees F.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. For mini muffins, bake 12-15 minutes.
- Let cool on a wire rack.
