it doesn't always work out the way it's supposed to.

living in a household with two little boys, food doesn't stay around for long. to be honest, food doesn't stay around for long with the big boy in the house either, but he tends to leave their favorite treats just for them.

i bought some delicious organic blackberries for my birthday breakfast. you see, chrispy makes delicious breakfasts and can you just imagine blackberries on fluffy pancakes? don't drool on your keyboard, but he also made a blackberry syrup. seriously.

so we had leftover blackberries, and left to their own devices, my little boys would have eaten them all up. i insisted that they'd make delicious muffins, and so i held the little wolves off. chris tends to brag about my cooking, amazed that i can just whip something up. he doesn't understand that it's about 10% skill and 90% luck. part of that luck is that i have a very good memory and that i tend to remember food combinations that i've seen before. ok, maybe i'll give myself 15% skill, but that's about it.

i had some bananas rotting away so i figured we'd make banana-blackberry muffins. we cut the blackberries into fours because those things are big and you'd probably end up eating a muffin with one honkin' blackberry in the center.

end result: beautiful ingredients in the bowl (see above). icky muffins popped out of the oven.

final determination: my boys will eat anything - they said they were fantastic.
