Hannah Banana Muffins
I told my little girl I was going to call these Hannah Banana Muffins from now on and she giggled uncontrollably, then caught her breath and said, “Oh yeah, baby!” She and her brother crack me up every day. I’ve called her Hannah Banana since she was a baby. She doesn’t really like it when other kids call her that, as I was informed by her last year during preschool, but she does really like it when her teachers, dad and I use it as a term of endearment.
I wasn’t quite so endeared with her however when she recently informed my mother-in-law that her banana muffins and scrambled eggs were much better than her mommy’s. In her defense, my mother-in-law is a really excellent, Southern cook. I feigned some hurt feelings at the time, but I did happily take home a copy of the banana muffins she had made for Hannah that particular day. It’s a very simple Southern Living recipe, and I think part of Hannah’s fondness for them were because the nuts were sprinkled on top…. meaning she had the choice of a muffin with no nuts. Her mommy loves baked goods with nuts, Hannah does not. They are really yummy muffins… and I can never stay mad at this sweet face for long!
