Happy National Flag Day 2019!

What a blessing, honor, and privilege to live in the Land of the Free, and Home of the Brave!
May we never forget that Freedom is not Free! God Bless America, and all those who defend her! ❤️









THE HISTORY OF FLAG DAY from Military.com...

The first celebration of the U.S. Flag's birthday was held in 1877 on the 100th anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777. However, it is believed that the first annual recognition of the flag's birthday dates back to 1885 when school teacher, BJ Cigrand, first organized a group of Wisconsin school children to observe June 14 - the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes as the Flag's Birthday. Cigrand, now known as the 'Father of Flag Day,' continued to publically advocate the observance of June 14 as the flag's 'birthday', or 'Flag Day' for years.

Just a few years later the efforts of another school teacher, George Balch, led to the formal observance of 'Flag Day' on June 14 by the New York State Board of Education. Over the following years as many as 36 state and local governments began adopted the annual observance. For over 30 years Flag Day remained a state and local celebration.

In 1916, the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 became a nationally observed event by a proclamation by President Woodrow Wilson. However, it was not designated as National Flag Day until August 3rd, 1949, when an Act of Congress designated June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.

Today, Flag Day is celebrated with parades, essay contests, ceremonies, and picnics sponsored by veterans' groups, schools, and groups like the National Flag Day foundation whose goal is to preserve the traditions, history, pride, and respect that are due the nation's symbol, Old Glory.

Cooking Simplified: Apple Spice Muffins

Today I am sharing another two ingredient muffin recipe that is once again incredibly easy to make! This time around it's for Apple Spice Muffins!
It takes just a few minutes to whip them up, and the muffins are incredibly moist and oh so yummy...
you may just want to eat more than one!

Now I personally like to add a streusel topping to the muffins I make to give them a bit of that 'Gourmet Bakery' touch. Technically that means more than two items, but the topping is completely optional, and the muffins are still absolutely delicious without it. :)

Apple Spice Muffins

Ingredients:


Topping (Optional):

1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
**I actually double the topping since we like the muffins extra sweet at our house.

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Grease your muffin pan
(I use a jumbo size pan because I'm going for the 'Gourmet Bakery' vibe when making muffins)

3. Mix the Apple Pie Filling and Spice Cake Mix together in a bowl

4. Spoon the batter into the pan

5. Add the topping (optional)

6. Bake according to the directions for muffins on the box (usually 15 minutes or so)

That's it. I'm not kidding! They are INCREDIBLY EASY to make, and will disappear as quick as lightning...especially if you have kiddos around!

Do let me know what you think if you give them a try!
That's it for now...I hope you have an absolutely glorious and blessed day!!! :)
