  • I am a huge fan of muffins. I always have a freezer full of a few different kinds. I get bored easily, so I always need options Muffins aren’t always the most healthy things though. So if you want to enjoy them, sometimes you have to lighten them up a bit. That is exactly what we have here! Bananas are really good for you, I am sure everyone knows that.

But, if I had to, it would probably have to be rosemary. After all, not only is it exquisitely yummy, but its aroma alone can get my mouth watering every, single time. We’ve tried — and loved — rosemary in so many different ways:  with garlic, lemon, potatoes, Kalamatas…you name [...]
