Cherry Streusel Muffins | #SummerDessertWeek

It’s Summer and it’s Dessert Week! Does it get any better?

I’m a sucker for muffins, and when these Sweet Dark Cherries arrived on my doorstep from Rainier Fruits, it was love at first sight. They added an extra pop of sweetness to the muffins, which make a perfect little breakfast with a hot cup of coffee!

Sponsored items used in this recipe: Sweet Dark Cherries from Rainier Fruit, Granulated Sugar from Dixie Crystals and OXO’s handy Cherry Pitter.

Cherry Streusel Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins


    For the Streusel Topping:
  • 1/4 c all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp pecans (finely chopped)
  • For the Muffins:
  • 2 c all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 c granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 lg eggs
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter, melted & cooled
  • 1 c whole milk
  • 2 c fresh dark sweet cherries, pitted & chopped


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners; set aside.

To make the topping, in a medium bowl, whisk together all the topping ingredients until crumbly; refrigerate while you mix the muffin batter.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the cooled butter. Add the milk and whisk to combine. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir just to combine; do not overmix. Gently fold in the cherries and pour the batter equally into the 12 prepared muffin cups. Crumble the streusel topping equally over the muffins and bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

Let cool in the tins for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack and cool completely.

AvoGarlic Yogurt Dressing

by Jessica on June 30, 2017

AvoGarlic Yogurt Dressing | #StonyfieldBlogger

Need a little easy in your life? Then look no further. With a little help from my friends at Stonyfield and Taylor Farms, I’ve created one of my favorite dressings to date! And it takes less than 5 minutes to put together!

It’s tangy from the yogurt & garlic, but smooth and rich from the avocado. This dressing is so versatile, too… it can go on salads, tacos, baked potatoes, rice or even on baked chicken. It makes a pretty fabulous dip, as well!

I’ve been a huge fan of Taylor Farms salads and veggies for several years (I absolutely love their Asian Chopped Salad kit!), so it was definitely a treat to pair their Baby Spring Mix with this AvoGarlic Yogurt Dressing. I hope you enjoy it, too!

AvoGarlic Yogurt Dressing | #StonyfieldBlogger

AvoGarlic Yogurt Dressing

Yield: 4-6 servings


  • 1 lg ripe avocado
  • 1 c Stonyfield Whole Milk Smooth & Creamy Plain yogurt
  • 1 tbsp fresh minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil


Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop the flesh into a food processor and add the yogurt, garlic, salt and olive oil. Blend until smooth.
