Since making these cozy fall-flavored Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Oat Streusel Topping, I’ve come to the conclusion… it’s time for a new oven. And if the hubby’s reading, yes, that’s right- I said it… a new oven!

Sweet and crunchy on the tops, moist and bursting with warm fall flavors on the inside these healthier streusel apple muffins are a MUST try!

The truth is, my oven’s not really cutting it and that’s pretty much a food blogger (and a mother’s) worst nightmare. How in the heck am I supposed to bake up more of these incredibly tasty Apple Cinnamon Muffins? Brad, Landen and I ate them up so fast, it’s a little embarrassing. 🙂

There is no way I can be without an oven during prime baking season. I admit- I’ve done a little internet searching, to get an idea what a new oven would cost and what bells and whistles I need to convince Brad we can’t live without.

The choices are a bit overwhelming, to say the least. Most of my home appliances come from Sears Home Appliances and Services, so I decided to focus on what they had to offer. Sears Home Appliances and Services is the leader in home appliances and sells the top 10 appliance brands, so it seemed like the wisest decision to me… and it so was!

I came across the oven of a foodie’s dreams, affordable and gorgeous. Once I clicked on the link, I was able to view additional photos, read reviews and schedule an appointment to meet with an expert in the store. (See the arrow in the picture below.) This is a wonderful feature, especially for those of us who aren’t appliance experts. Sears Home Appliances and Services can totally take care of my home, so I can sit back and enjoy it… and all of the deliciousness that would be sure to come out of this beautiful new oven!

I definitely recommend clicking the link to meet with an expert! I was able to make an appointment at a time that was convenient for this busy mama and they were ready for me when I arrived the very next day. I sure love not having to waste time standing in lines. Time is so valuable during the hectic holiday season. Heck, time is valuable year round!

Meeting with my “expert” was great. He was so knowledgeable and helpful, giving me tons of useful information on a variety of different oven choices. When I talk Brad into a new oven purchase, I’ll be ready! As an added plus, I now have so much more information to make a better case for the reasons why a new oven is a fabulous idea! 🙂
