Everybody loved these - perfect combination of blueberries and bananas. I used 1/4 cup sour cream instead of the buttermilk, 2 large overripe bananas, and 1 1/2 cup fresh blueberries. 350 degrees 23 minutes for the round silicone muffin cups, 27 minutes for the square ones. Made 22 regular size muffins. Next time maybe I'll use less butter.

The little cutie here is Martha, the sweet lady I was blessed to have worked with for two years. Martha passed away on 12/3/08. Martha and I would ride endlessly during the holidays, and she would sing carols and laugh and just enjoy it so much. I know this holiday season, she will be with her brother, son and mother and finally be "home". Martha, I still love you more. ******* I'm a simple girl, born of good stock. I'm the mamma of two spoiled tuxedo cats: Beauregard and Patches (the one who's been drinking eggnog). They love cuddling together, and this picture is taken on my hall steps. I'm a firm believer in LOA. I need to get more dedicated to daily practice. Below is a film that explains it, and is wonderful. I highly recommend it. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* This is Beau enjoying his computer. He's quite good at deleting messages, making the desktop disappear (as is his brother). Their path to the window is over my keyboard. <IMG SRC="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/126104/PuterCat.jpg"> This is Patches, planning his strategy to keep me awake, but cuddling his sock baby and trying to be cute to throw me off. <IMG SRC="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/126104/RugRat.jpg"> Beau works a long week.
