merry christmas! hallelujah!


merry monday meet up!


It's time for another Monday Meet Up...Christmas-Style!
Since today is Christmas Eve,
and so many of us will be baking,
cooking, and sharing food....
I thought I'd share a brand-new
recipe that I just tweaked around
to make AMAZING.
You will thank me once you taste these suckers!

I present to you....

These began as Crack Muffins-
which are actually "Monkey Muffins"
But once you eat Monkey Muffins,
you can't stop... hence my dubbing
them Crack Muffins.
Anyways... one of my girlfriends turned me on to this super yummy recipe. And during Thanksgiving time last year, I substituted the banana for pumpkin. And. It. Was. Awesome. A few days ago, I decided to make some again... And before I popped those suckers in the oven, I thought a little sea salt would be a good idea. Boy was I ever right! Needless to say, there are no more in the house...after just a couple of days. Hope you all enjoy. Xxo
