Four stars for Mimi and sheer deliciousness

After doing this post a couple of days ago, I promised I would try and remember to mention how they turned out.

The verdict?  Mimi’s whole-wheat giant banana-strawberry muffins are pretty good!  Granted, my muffins were not whole-wheat as I didn’t have any whole-wheat flour, but otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly and was pleased with how they came out.  More important than my four out of five stars rating?  My kids loved them.  I could really stop the post there, because if my kids like it, it’s good.

I did love the slices of strawberry in the muffins and the banana adds a great extra but subtle sweetness.  They stayed very moist- I can attest to this because I just ate the last one a few minutes ago (two days after making them).  The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is probably because I have a ridiculous sweet tooth and am used to my muffins being, well, sweeter.  That’s probably my issue more so than Mimi’s though.  Anyway, I would definitely recommend them and since my whole family loved them overall and they are fairly healthy to boot, I will absolutely be making them again.

Oh no.  I just had to go to the allrecipes.com site to make sure I got the link correct for the muffins, and I found these.  Bad news for this sweet tooth, my friends.  Bad news.  It is highly likely that you will find a post on these in the near future.  I LOVE the Reese’s chocolate-covered peanut butter eggs, and these look amazing.

I’d better go back to reviewing books rather than food.  It’s dangerous.



Since my husband is finishing up his dissertation and is locked away in his office upstairs, I had planned to do a blog post tonight.  But then I discovered this…

…and decided it would be much better to be proactive and make these for tomorrow’s breakfast.  They are in the oven, and I look forward to doing my part with quality control when they are ready.  Unfortunately, I also have to do my part of cleaning up after making them, so I’d better remove myself from the laptop and start that process.  I’ll try to remember to report back on how they turn out!
