this site has moved!

Hi friends! Just a heads up: I will no longer be posting here at The Thoughtful Plate. The site will remain accessible (though its URL will be reverting back to soon), so you can come browse the archives or search specific recipes at any time.

Leaving this space is bittersweet, as it was my first home on the internet. But I’m so excited to be able to direct you to my new site now! In the future I will be posting recipes at Head on over and check it out! A completely redesigned website awaits you there :)


P.S. If you currently follow The Thoughtful Plate on Bloglovin’, I’m doing my best to get the URLs transferred so that you don’t have to do anything. Fingers crossed that the transition goes smoothly!

I put so much effort into The Thoughtful Plate and am always pleasantly surprised to hear that someone actually enjoys visiting this little space on the internet. The community on WordPress is one of my favorite things about having my blog here. Continue reading

“we were berry picking!”


I went blueberry picking today and, between my mom, my brother, and I, arrived home with over 5 beautiful pounds of fresh organic blueberries.

All the way home I tried to decide in what form I would like to eat blueberries tonight. Eating them straight out of a bowl would give me pleasure, but I knew my family would enjoy muffins, so that’s what I made :)

I’m posting about it because I updated this blueberry muffin post from January. I gave it a new picture, and I also solved the problem of the purple tops! Yay!

So if you’re looking for a yummy use for an abundance of berries you might want to head over to the original post.

P.S. In case you were curious, the title of this post is indeed from The Sound of Music… I like that scene :)
