Banana muffins

Don’t people say that the fun is in the waiting?


In the chase, or the build-up, or the journey?


I’ve reason to believe that this is true.


In the past few months, I’ve been lucky enough to have had several experiences that I’ve enjoyed immensely and will cherish for a long time.


In retrospect though, I feel that the build-up to these events- the endless planning, the long discussions, and the anticipation was actually the most fun part. The actual event would pass me by in a flash.


So I’ve decided to really start enjoying the ride.


And in an attempt to savour the build-up to this festive season, I’ve made crazy-soft, melt-in-your-mouth banana muffins.



Easy enough to make in a hurry, these muffins are perfect with a warm mug of tea or coffee.
And I think they are the food equivalent of a hug 🙂


Happy holidays friends!

    Christmas is here, why don’t you put up some Christmas desert recipe, which is of course easy to make, would love to read and try. 🙂

  2. Wow, these look fantastic! Reading this blog always makes me crave sweets, which is unusual for me 🙂 Also, it’s funny about all the comments on your rainbow cake, because as I was reading this post I, too, realized it was cake and not jello haha!

  3. I want a hug! 😉 it looks so yummy!
    And by the way (before reading the comments) I just realized that what your holding is actually a rainbow cake. I thought it was a rainbow jello. 😉 I’m thinking of rainbow cupcakes – I should try to make some for Christmas!

  4. Those look AHHHH-MAZING!!! 🙂
    Also, totally love your rainbow cake in your pic. I decided earlier this week that I am having a rainbow cake for my birthday next year! So fun! 🙂
