My new obsession is drying fruit! I just can’t get enough! Josh’s co-worker gave us her old food dehydrator since she never used it. It is old but still does the job. I got it out this week and it has been running non-stop!...

A co-worker gave me a bag of plums, fresh from the tree! They are so juicy and sweet. I used some of them to make Plum Coffee Cake Muffins. The muffins look plain, but when you take a bite there is a sweet surprise...
