LEMON YOGURT MUFFINS & TASTE OF HOME GIVEAWAY


Musical pairing – Recipe for Love by Harry Connick, Jr.

Is it a muffin or is it a cupcake? I don’t really know the answer other than to say that I’ve heard, ‘if the batter is baked in a liner, it’s a cupcake, if it’s baked directly in the tin without a liner, call it a muffin’ . . . I have no idea if it’s true and not that it really matters because as The Professor says, ‘I never met a sweet I didn’t like!’ . . . which explains the missing extra muffin from the tin . . .

BIG SUMMER POTLUCK & DOUGHNUT MUFFINS


Musical pairing – Taking Chances by Celine Dion

I DID IT!!! I flew by myself to Pennsylvania last Friday, rented a car and drove BY MYSELF (with Lilly’s help – I’ve named my GPS Lilly) to the home of ThreeManyCooks and met people I only knew on Twitter; then flew back home on Sunday – YAY FOR ME!!! Only a couple of times where I panicked – once when I couldn’t figure out how to get out of the rental car parking lot . . . go ahead I’ll wait for the laughter to die down . . . and once on the return of said car to the same said parking lot at 5am when I learned that they weren’t open that time of morning.  My plane was to take off at 6:05 and I still had to print my boarding pass and get thru security . . . but in my defense, I hadn’t slept but 10 hours over the last three days . . . so there may have been a teeny bit of hysteria during that part of the trip . . .  yes, I am a wuss and a drama queen all rolled into one . . .

Musical pairing –How Sweet It Is, Joan Osborne

A teeny bit bummed to learn that ‘Tuesdays With Dorie’ isn’t taking new members; however, the good news is that I’ll still be baking some of the recipes from that book and sharing them with you here at Smith Bites – YAY!!  I’m still holding out that I’ll get to meet Dorie someday, but for now, I’m moving on to one of my fav-oh-rite muffin recipes ever!
