Let's Talk Muffins

Warning: There are no pictures that will be attached to this post!!!

Let's talk muffins...

This morning, my sweet grandmother decided to fix me breakfast, since she has been staying with me this weekend.  She got up early and let me sleep in while she cooked.  It was so nice to wake up to the smell of food being cooked I felt like such a kid.  I went downstairs and was surprised that she made my favorite... muffins.  

She told me they tasted a little different and obviously I did not immediately understand until I went in the kitchen and she had cooked them in a cake pan.  She did not want to wake me so she went the alternate route and used whatever she could find.  (I hear that I hide my muffin pans... oops!)

A couple of  years ago she bought me a brownie pan (which I call a cake pan) off of QVC.  I know... my grandmother is that lady! It has these nice dividers so after the brownie (or cake) is baked you do not have to cut it.  There are already single serving cut pieces.  I do really love this pan! But back to the muffins...

Muffins just do not taste the same unless they are made in a muffin pan.  Brownie shaped muffins just taste funny and I want answers!!! There has to be a reason for this!! 

Have a great day!!

I guess things have changed and not only is that sweet husband of mine trying to eat better but I am obsessing over "healthy" food.  One of the biggest things that I have become obsessed with is the avocado.  

I love them and they are healthy for you.  They are a great substitute to put on a sandwich instead of mayonnaise.  (Well, this is what I hear anyway.)  My favorite way to eat this is as guacamole.  If anybody really knows me you know that before a month ago I would not eat guacamole because of its resemblance to baby poop.  Which of course, I love babies but I do not want to eat anything that looks like their poop.

Other things that I have learned to love it Aldi.  Do you have an Aldi where you live?  Check here. This is obviously where I buy my avocados.  Every time I get them they are not ripe yet so they last longer and you can buy things that are on sale and not have to worry about using them that day.  I love Aldi! :)

So, back to the avocados... since I have been making guacamole, I have enjoyed using my food processor that I got for Christmas.  I absolutely love it and am trying to find different ways to use it to make multiple delicious things!

That's all for now! Have a great day!!
