This is my happy place.

1-pear upside down muffins

After weeks of craziness and activity, there is not a single place I’d rather be than standing in my kitchen with a flour-covered, sundress-wearing, bleach blonde two-year-old by my side.

Made even sweeter by the fact that these muffins turned out perfectly. Adrienne ate a bite after each addition (flour…bite…baking powder…bite…muesli…bite…salt…bite…you get it). After all of those miniature bites and some minor spills, I had my doubts.

But at the end of it all, they worked. Really, really well. The perfect texture.

(I’m not sure if I am recommending that you take a bite after each ingredient addition…but if you make these muffins and they DON’T work, maybe that should be your next step. I don’t know. My guess is that they’ll work well either way. Try it and let me know.)
