It’s really cold out there. A couple of days ago we actually had snow. There’s nothing more fun than having a snow day once in a while. This is the first snow that we’ve had in a few years and it’s been about 5 years since it actually stuck to the ground. The snow only lasted a day, so we made the most of it and had a snowball fight and made a snowman. The important things.

When it’s cold outside, I like to bake. The warmth of the oven heats the whole house and gives me a nice warm fuzzy feeling. It’s still really cold outside so I decided to make muffins this morning. I usually make blueberry muffins, but this time I decided to be more adventurous. Banana Walnut muffins are a bit more hearty than the blueberry ones, but what really made me make the decision was the fact that I had a couple of bananas that needed to be used immediately. Usually I’d make banana bread, but I figured that muffins are a fun thing to make and take on the go.

Not only do these taste really good – they make the house smell fabulous. With the kinds running in and out all the time, it’s nice to be able to give them something to take with them. I like to heat them up a bit and have them with a hot cup of tea. For me, that’s perfect on a cold and frosty day.
