these muffins, bananas would never find their way into my nourishment. I never
cared much for their flavor and texture: too bland, an off-putting “sweetness.”
As the inner Lara-Jean Song in me awakens, I let whatever is in the cupboard,
pantry, fridge dictate what sweet I will create that day.
weeks ago I truly wanted to put these fresh blueberries for good use but was
lacking a jumping point. After overlooking several banana-blueberry xyz recipes
I kept lingering on the possibility of indulging the banana in my repertoire. I
bit my tongue and thought “what’s the worse that can happen, I’ll hate it and
never make it again”
I think I prefer making baked goods from scratch. As grateful as I am that premixed flours exist my personal choice is that, if I can somehow duplicate a baked good with minimal ingredients and a little practice then it seems worth it in the long run. Even though it’s September, it’s still summer but I’m still over here playing some old Taylor Swift jams and of course paying an homage (like please go away hot weather) to summer!!
These muffins are so fluffy and a really proper way to end out summer. I had these strawberries from Trader Joe’s I wanted to use, leftover lemon from a previous baking session, and some nighttime inspiration – side note if you haven’t read Jenny Han’s book series To All The Boys I Loved Before, or its Netflix film counterpart then you’re truly missing out. Lara Jean Covey is a literary icon who you’d find sipping strawberry milkshakes at a 50’s diner or baking, baking all the time. So basically take your pick: binge the book series and then watch the film or the other way around and have your heart restored with joy and hope.
