That Mighty Muffin

“If you really want to make a friend, go to someone’s house… the people who give you their food give you their heart.” – Cesar Chavez

Mmm there is nothing more satisfying at the moment to wake up in the morning, stretch and yawn and clamber your way out of your bedroom to the kitchen to see a plate full of fresh Browned Butter Blueberry Muffins with Streusel Topping to stuff in your face. I have now become very passionate about the idea of providing myself with an endless supply of muffins as well as the people who come and visit me. You’d be surprised as to how much your friends will love you more once you come over to their house with some tupperware jam packed with Cinnamon Roll Muffins with Pecans and Vanilla Frosting.

I’d love me more, which is why I want to encourage people to do an act of kindness by making a batch of muffins or even clump it all together and make a simple loaf of bread (Yeasted Pumpkin Bread) or a pound cake (Brown Butter Banana Bread) and give it to the people that you care about or wish to show appreciation for. I really feel like it has opened up an opportunity to connect with people whether with your friends, or at your work, or when you are invited to someone’s house or party. Which is why these muffins are so mighty! So let’s bake some goods!

  1. […] I have always admired people’s living spaces when the walls are covered from floor to ceiling with framed pictures and paintings. There is this man that lives directly below my apartment who has probably been for a very, very, long time. About two or three times I was able to peek through the door when he was leaving or coming home and his place is coated with dusty, yet beautifully framed paintings. It is quite incredible. I almost want to knock on his door and ask to go inside, but I have an inkling he might be a bitter man. Maybe I will bring some of those muffins from my previous posts (That Mighty Muffin). […]
