  1. These toppings sound delicious!My son loves english muffins with cheese and pizza sauce.I may try some of these for him.
  2. I pinned this for later. I love trying some different toppings on them, so I'll have to check out the others and see which ones hit home the most! Thank you!
  3. Oh these all sound really good and a nice and healthy way to change up breakfast a bit!  I have to try the Cream cheese and sliced strawberries!!!  Oh that would be so good!
  4. My favorite is guacamole with red pepper flakes topped with cheddar cheese~ So, so good! I also love making mini pizzas with English muffins! 
  5. I saw the article about aging and wrinkles. I've been on the same exact road! I've tried a few tings but they are so expensive I can't afford any of the options, its depressing. I'm living in A nursing faciliity right now & doing therapy to TRY to be able to walk again, if it goes well, I get to go home. My point is, I feel so overwhelmed & stressed to the max, and it makes me feel really really old! Eye lines, smile lines, forehead lines, even when I sleep i wake up with lines at the bottom of my cheeks! Its like fat wrinkles! WHAT? I never had those?! I have to smooth them out every single morning. Thanks for liistening to my rant
  6. I love English muffins! We have muffin pizzas pretty often around here.Super easy and something a little different.
  7. I loaded a free Ralph's coupon for English muffins the other day. I'm going to pair it with the free TGIF chicken appetizers coupon I also loaded. Both are items I don't regularly eat but I don't turn down free food, lol. The veggies with avocado slices sounds like a great topping for the muffins. My mom also regularly had English muffins for us, but only toasted with butter. They would make a sturdy base for a mini pizza for sure.
