Brrrr - boy is it cold today!! -34C with the wind (-29F) - too cold to go for a walk - too cold to do much of anything ... except bake, of course!
When it's cold like that, there is nothing better than to start the oven and heat up the kitchen with some delicious muffins!!
I had some bananas that were quite ripe - so decided to make a recipe I made once or twice before - something with chocolate, of course!
Don't you love my little stand ($5.99 at Winners)?!! Bought it to put some spices but decided today to use it to showcase my muffins!
Hope you all had a great weekend - I had a wonderful one that included lots of shopping!!
