~The Winner is Banana Muffins! And .....

Come on in, I have some fresh Banana Muffins right out of the oven. And this recipe is a winner! Coffee? Sure, I'll pour you a cup. Mine is half cocoa and half decaf. I drink it for the taste not the caffeine.
RECIPE click HERE. (Not on Country Living site, but it's the same recipe.)

The Winner is.... #16 who wrote:

I had to have the accountants double check the results on this drawing. After all I've known Rhoda about the longest of anyone in BlogLand. We have been friends for several years, hard to believe it's been so long. But I'm really happy that you won Rhoda. I know this will look exceptionally well with your colors.

Can you believe how long these white roses have lasted? As I said I don't buy fresh too much any more because I can buy a live plant will last for months and fresh is gone in just a few days. The white roses have made me rethink about buying them more often. I have enjoyed them so much.

The recipe for the banana muffins is from Country Living Magazine. They published it about a year ago, and our friend Sarah/Sally cooked some up and shared the recipe. They were a huge hit in my house where they even win out over banana bread. I made the with organic sugars and spelt flour with half organic unbleached. They still were perfect. And of course the organic butter has less fat...right? OK.....so that was just pretend.

If you haven't looked lately, both BJ's and Costco's are carrying more organic products, milk, butter, sometimes eggs, coffee, salad greens, hummus, and organic whole chickens, to name just a few things.
(Yes, those are the same white roses! Amazing how long they have lasted. I'll have to rethink not buying them because they don't last long enough.)

It was so sweet of all you to stop by and leave a note.
I hope you have a Great Day!

    Those muffins look soooooo good. My husband got me the most beautiful Ivory colored roses with pink centers at Christmas. I couldn't believe that they last 3 weeks! I even tried a few. Maybe cutting the stems once a week helped?
