Back in January of this year, I started a weekly recipe/cooking blog. I was bored with my standard ‘go-to’ meals, and wanted some variety and newness in my diet. So once a week for the past 11 months, I have selected a recipe I have never made before (with a few exceptions), and given it a go. While there have been a few disappointments, I’ve experienced mostly positive results – and even a few fun surprises!
This week I decided to make a sweet treat (instead of a savory dish), and baked some jam-filled muffins. As I cut into the first finished muffin (to photograph the insides for the blog), I was delighted to see that the jam filling had made a uniquely-shaped indentation in the lower-third of the treat: it looked like the muffin was smiling at me!
How very fitting. :)
