FASHION FRIDAY: ADDED COLOR

TGIF!!!!!!!!  So happy it's the weekend!  Today's outfit is pretty basic, sort of my "momiform" of what you can find me in on a daily basis running around with two little ones- jeans and a comfy top.  I always tend to gravitate toward black, but here I added color by way of some new pieces I got from the Stella & Dot spring line.  Added color can help make an outfit pop, it can add new life to an outfit you've worn a dozen times, and it helps make your mood pop too, especially with the winter we've been having!  The good news is, Spring is just 21 days away and I'm sure I'm not the only one who is looking forward to it!!!!

BEST BANANA MUFFINS

Hey guys!  I've got a little recipe post for you today.  It's for banana muffins (I know- easy, nothing fancy), but I promise you...this recipe really does make the BEST banana muffins ever!!!  I have made banana muffins at least a dozen times in the past, and after a bit of tweaking, I have found the recipe that I will continue to make.  My kids absolutely love these, and ask for them all of the time!!!

BEST BANANA MUFFINS RECIPE:
Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 ripe bananas
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 stick butter

Directions:
- Gather all the ingredients
- Preheat oven to 350*
- Line muffin pan
- Mix dry ingredients in one bowl (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, sugar)
- In another bowl mix wet ingredients (vanilla, bananas mashed, egg scrambled, butter melted)
- Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ones and fill the muffin cups
- Bake for 25-30 minutes (I always bake for 25 because I like my muffins a little underdone)
- Enjoy!!!
