About three weeks ago, my husband and I got to enjoy a fried food festival in our new home city. Oh, I mean, a fall festival. But it honestly was mostly fried food. The weather was beautiful, and who doesn’t like an excuse to indulge on buffalo chicken nachos and a brownie sundae?

Despite reducing the amount of yogurt, somehow these were still extremely moist. So moist that I could not safely store them on the counter, because… Continue reading Banana-Coconut Blueberry Muffins | Attempt II
