New Year Banana berries muffin

First of all, I would like to say Happy New Year my friends ! Wish you all the best in 2009. I know it is a bit late to say it, but better late than never isn’t it ?^_^  Where have I been lately ? Poor my ‘kitchen’, it has been neglected for a while.  I went for a winter holiday in the first week of January, then came back and caught a terrible cold. The weather was so nasty to me. Shrinking to my bed, can not do anything. Think, it is the worst that I ever had.

The good thing is,  my husband has finished his study, so we are now busy packing to go back home for good at the end of this month. We are looking forward to go, but a bit sad really leaving this town. Lancaster has been  our second home. I will miss Lancaster for sure.  By the way,  I try to keep my kitchen updated in the middle of my packing 🙂

Now, I am back with full of energy and passion in the beginning of the year that full  of hope.  Here it is, the first post in new year 2009 : Banana Berries Muffin. This is not good looking muffin, but taste nice. Uhmm…I don’t know really what it went wrong , the picture’s quality is not really good 😦 I am sorry..

Blueberry apple muffin

9 Am Sunday morning.

Breakfast is always a thing to be celebrated 🙂 Still wearing my old pyjama, strolling to my little kitchen.  And what a better way than with the aroma cinnamon from my muffin and fresh coffee to tempt my sleepy head? :D. The goodness of fruit bake and spiced batter perfectly start my Sunday after whole week working hard. It’s time to indulge my self.

Do you want to try ? ^_*
