muffin, originally uploaded by medusahead.

This morning I made my very first batch of blueberry muffins from scratch. There are very few things that bring out my lack of confidence like baking does. It called for weird stuff, like yogurt and lemon zest. Apparently the weird stuff worked. They weren't the best muffins ever, but not bad for a first try. To Harlow, they were the best muffins in the world. She was a head to toe smeary mess of blueberry and dough. She wanted them in her mouth, on her face, smooshed between her fingers, on her clothes, on the dog. I could smell the lemon zest in her hair when she buried her face in my neck and flung her arm around my shoulder. I want to bake everyday for the rest of my life to get thanks like that.
