Cool! This is the second muffin recipe of the year and it's only February. And yes, I am still a cupcake kind of girl but I can not resist making these muffins as soon as I saw the recipe in the Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook.
Muffins remind me of mornings. And mornings are what I really miss most right now. Sometimes, I wish I am a morning person because morning persons get to enjoy light - early morning sunlight that is. The kind of light that is perfect for food photography. Unfortunately, I don't get to enjoy it because mornings have this uncanny power to make be unbelievably lazy and the night has this magical ability to nurture my creative juices. Oh well, to each his own.
