Moms Refrigerator Bran Muffins ~ Delicious, Moist Bran Muffins Straight from Mom’s Recipe Box!
I got the urge to go to this cute little boutique about 45 minutes away from my house today. I was so excited. She had posted pictures of new inventory and I was itching to go shopping. So I called my mom and she said she’d come with so we loaded the girls up and took off. One bathroom break later we arrived at our destination. We walked into the store and the little girls stuff was at the front and of course I went wild and wanted everything but only got a few things thank you to will power. As we went to the back of the store we were welcomed with the women’s clothing and home decor. The stuff I was soooo excited about. What did I purchase? NOTHING. The only thing that came home with me was stuff for the girls.
I’m a mom. Such a mom. Last week I went shopping at a department store and got a ton of clearance stuff for the girls for next winter and a sweatshirt for my hubs. Did I even make it to my department? Heck no. It’s so depressing. Maybe it’s because I’m still holding onto 10 lbs of baby weight I just can’t get off and I don’t want to even try anything on. Maybe it’s because I’m starting to self sacrifice. Maybe it’s because I’m boring. I don’t know what it is.
Therefore I came home quite upset. I decided it was time to do something about this and since I obviously can’t pick out clothes for myself I promptly went to Stitch Fix and reactivated my account. I had tried it once before and then got preggers so I haven’t done it since. I filled out my style profile, made some notes to the stylist and built myself a Stitch Fix Pinterest Board so they know my style. If I can’t shop for myself then someone else is going to do it for me! My “Fix” is scheduled for March 3rd and I’m pumped. So haven’t heard of Stitch Fix?

What’s this got to do with Bran Muffins? Nada! Sorry about that rant! This Bran Muffin recipe is from my husband’s mother. Sometimes I use certain foods to bribe my husband to do something I want him to do. Don’t tell me you don’t do that too! Whenever I need a little favor I know these will get me a compliant husband. His eyes literally light up when he sees me make these or comes into the house with a fresh batch just coming out of the oven. Sometimes it’s the simple recipes that have been handed down that make the happiest husbands!
