Ode to Fanny Farmer & Saturday mornings...

Happy weekend all!

My ode to Fanny Farmer refers to the Fanny Farmer cookbooks -  these well-loved copies (Fanny Farmer cookbook & Fanny Farmer Baking Book) have been in my kitchen since the first year I was married ( a long time ago...)  
Saturday morning is a favourite time of the week. Currently there is laundry going, the dishwasher is churning away, the ironing board is up and waiting for my blouses to be pressed, a pile of clean socks to be matched up, and lastly I decided to bake some muffins....

I have been thinking about bran muffins for awhile now. Not too elegant but  hearty, and these are not too sweet and taste great with either jam or a small slice of cheese.  
Happy weekend all.

Hi Darlene

Oh muffins. I like these little things every now and willingly. Just last week had brought a colleague at work who thought so and if not I should do it again sometimes. Maybe even for my birthday ... well, in any case, my other colleagues have been falling over and asked, depending on what day it was if someone had birthday. And my colleague said then that nobody has ever birthday but she had baked this only pretending. And then it was called "Can I have this one?" and then said with a grin, "Yes, to arrived."
Since you can sometimes see that this great muffins arrive.

Lots greetings from Germany

Loved your post Darlene.
I’ll bet your kitchen smelled like heaven. It almost made me want to whip up a batch of my own. Luckily, I regained my senses and averted any kitchen mishaps. Maybe I should just invite myself over to your place.
Happy nesting :-)
