Musical pairing – Save Me, San Francisco by Train
Since I’m getting ready to head to San Francisco for the weekend, and since I’m waayyyyy behind on my writing, photo editing and overall blogging schedule, this post is going to be down and dirty quick! So hold on to your hats, Nellie, here we go . . .
A couple months back, some good friends of ours, Chris and Karen of the fabulous food blog The Peche, had mentioned on Twitter that they were baking up a batch of Banana Espresso Muffins. Now I must confess that anything with the word ‘espresso’ in it, gets my attention – pronto. So I tweeted back, ‘recipe please’ and Chris was kind enough to send the link my direction. And lickety-split, I was in the kitchen slapping these babies together; within the hour, The Professor was singing the praises of Chris and Karen with a mouth full of fabulous muffin . . . it’s ok, The Professor loves me more . . . of that I am somewhat confident . . .
The recipe comes from the two geniuses of Baked fame which makes me even more excited because on our trip to Charleston this past spring, we had the pleasure of visiting their store more than once during our stay. If you’re lucky enough to live in New York and you haven’t visited, shame on you! If you live in Charleston and haven’t visited that location, shame on you! The rest of you visiting either location – they are a ‘must stop by!’ or you get a shame on you too!
By the way, Chris and Karen are also the creative geniuses behind BHF10PP (BlogHer Food 10 PITY PARTY) that has taken the food blogging world by storm; follow along with them this weekend on Twitter (#BHF10PP) when about 350 food bloggers will descend on San Francisco – are you ready San Francisco? ‘Cuz the city won’t ever be the same! Chris & Karen have some really terrific swag to be given away throughout the weekend and The Professor and I will be doing a Red Carpet segment via U-Stream on Friday evening – we’ll be live 9-10pm PACIFIC TIME (time approx). Who knows, we might be lucky enough to score an interview with the fabulous Jaden Hair of Steamy Kitchen, Ethel Merman, I mean, Ree Drummond of Pioneer Woman and the ever-so-uber Elise Bauer of Simply Recipes plus sooooooo many other fun, food-loving and equally fabulous food bloggers!
So without further ado . . .
