Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

No Comments

I had an extremely busy week last week at TechWave, my company’s annual user conference in Vegas. While I do love Vegas, being there almost a full week is so very tiring. And of course in such an indulgent place, I ate so many rich things that by Saturday I couldn’t wait to come home to cook (and eat) my own food.

I almost didn’t make these muffins. Last night I came home a little later than expected, but it was all worth it because I got to have some much needed girl time. I went with my sister-in-law and friends to a champagne tasting and filled up on all sorts of bubbly and caviar. I knocked [...]

Mini Mocha Banana Muffins

1 Comment

The ladies at my church got together for a prayer breakfast last weekend, and I brought a mini version of these. I’ve baked a few times already this year, but so far it’s been all old recipes, explaining the lack of new posts. I’m pretty sure my schedule will continue to be tight until the wedding – I’m traveling for work for a couple weeks, and there’s a lot left to do before the wedding. Good news is, I’m not stressed! Neither is Tim. We’ve gotten so many comments on how it doesn’t seem like we’re getting married in under two months – we seem too calm for it to be that soon. I think we’re both just not losing focus on what’s important. At the end of March 8, we’ll be married regardless of the little details, so we make it a point not to sweat the small stuff. Yes, I know I’m saying this now.. I just hope I can still keep my cool in March.

Espresso-Walnut Coffee Cake

4 Comments

I love coffee, and I love cakes. Well, then it should make perfect sense that I love coffee cakes too! And I do, it’s definitely one of my favorite ways to start out the day. Usually, coffee cake doesn’t actually have coffee in it. It’s often served with coffee, which is my guess why it’s called the name it is. But you can imagine my excitement when my friend Betty introduced me to this recipe back in 2002. We first made it together, and I was so thrilled with the outcome, I continued to make it again and again. To those who give me credit for this coffee cake, I’m sorry, but you’ve all been mistaken. First, thank Cooking Light. Then, thank Betty for finding the recipe and introducing it to me.

Chocolate Banana Muffins

3 Comments

Here’s another over-ripened banana recipe. One thing about me, I don’t like making plain ol’ banana bread anymore. I had an awful experience where I burned one, and now I know doubling the temperature does NOT mean it will bake in half the time. I won’t make that mistake again, but still, banana bread reminds me of that traumatic moment. Plus, I love new recipes (and chocolate!), so I decided to use the recipe below.
