But as of right now I'm still loving some good ol' sweets, breads, muffins and pies!!! I just might be a baker at heart!
But I digress, I actually want to talk about nuts...
No, that's not right :)
...ah, yes, MUFFINS!
Banana NUT muffins to be exact! They're delicious, and may I add they are perfect for breakfast! As a mom with a baby on the move I need the kind of breakfast that doesn't require a lot of preparation in the morning. You know, cereal, fruits, uh...cereal! Obviously, I needed a change so I baked the beauties you see below one morning and ate them for breakfast throughout the week. Umm, umm...GOOD!
