Love Muffin: Peach Cheesecake.

Could someone please tell me why it is that I can have grey hairs and acne breakouts at the same time? That doesn’t seem fair does it?

It should be one or the other. Not both. At the same time.

It’s like my body can’t decide what age I am. One minute I’m thirteen with a book report due on Of Mice and Men and the next I’m sixty-five dashing out to Denny’s for the early bird special. Make up your mind!

It seems like the general public can’t decide what age I am too. I get carded all the time when the rest of my table doesn’t even get a second glance. Door to door salesmen ask me when my parents are going to be home. True story. So I tell them six, maybe seven o’clock so they leave me alone to wallow in my self-pity.

The one that bothers me the most is the wide-eyed looks I get from perfect strangers when my boyfriend of thirty-three introduces to them his girlfriend of twenty-four. Age is just a number. I’ve known people far older than me that are also far less mature. Lee and I are on the same level mentally, why do we need to be the same age?

I know. I shouldn’t complain. It’s a compliment. It will be useful when I get older.

For now I’m going to keep dying my hair and washing my face.

This topic really doesn’t segue into muffins. At all. So I’m not going to try.

I made muffins. So there! They’re awesome. They have peaches and cheesecake in them. Did I mention they’re awesome?

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and position a rack in the center. Line a muffin tin with muffin liners.

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt then set it aside.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla until it’s light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat until each is just incorporated. Alternate the addition of milk and the dry ingredients by thirds, making sure not to over mix each addition. Finally add the chopped peaches and mix it in lightly.

In a separate bowl with an electric mixer beat together the cream cheese, sugar and flour until it’s smooth.

Spoon a heaping tbsp of the peach batter into the prepared muffin tin then spoon a heaping tsp of cream cheese mixture on top. Repeat these steps once more then run a knife through the top two layers of peach and cream cheese to create a marbled effect. Bake them for 15 – 20 minutes until the tops are a nice golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Transfer them to a cooling rack and enjoy!

    The muffins look absolutely delicious and I too loved the lack of segue. Who needs one anyway? I just read in a magazine that it is the curse of 20-something and 30-something-year-olds to suffer from the dreaded combination of both wrinkles and acne. Such duality just doesn’t seem fair! I’m surprised people are taken aback by your and your boyfriend’s age difference. My husband and I are 9 1/2 years apart and no one bats an eye. But then he does look (and act) pretty young. I’m still inclined to think that age is just a number when it comes to relationships even though he’s nearing 40 and is definitely slowing down physically. Makes me worry what things will be like once I’m in my 30s. But I like to think that’s just him and the 100+ pounds he’s gained so there’s still hope for other couples (like you!) out there. Sorry to turn this into my own episode of Oprah but I wanted to vent just a smidge.

      Thankfully I don’t have to worry about wrinkles yet! I agree, age is just a number. I’m glad to find people that agree with me.

    Peach cheesecake muffins!? Um delicious! Seriously, we could so go for a few of those now. Even though we just ate lunch. And our snack we were saving for later. But there’s always room for cheesecake right!?

    my mom is in her 50′s and gets gray hairs and zits. dermatologist told me that the acne wont go away for most of us until we’re post-menopausal. BOO. and your age difference isn’t particularly noteworthy to me. 20-something males are immature, so if you’re a particularly mature female, you’re kind of screwed.
