Apples and a twister

Who can resist a muffin? I hope my coworkers can’t, ’cause today I’m taking in some mini muffins — Apple-Oat Bran from the V’con.

First, my kitchen now smells like Apple Jacks, so I couldn’t be happier ... unless you’ve got a bowl of Apple Jacks on ya. No? Damn!

Second, this is a culinary tribute to Edwards Apple Orchard in Poplar Grove, Ill. A tornado recently hit Boone County, which is the home of one of the best traditions in Northern Illinois. I hope everyone affected by the storm gets back on their feet soon and that the community supports each other in this tough time ... and maybe, just maybe, the home of the best apple cider and apple cider donuts will be back in business come fall.

Looks great! Are those what you fixed for Anne?

Nope. She got a handful of mini blueberry muffins from the Moosewood Restaurant recipe book she gave me.

They were great Bob, thanks. I love you because you pack your goodies with so much healthy stuff, I can have one without guilt.

You know we don't deserve you, right? Glad that you're feeling better :)

you just can't stop linking to us, can you?

but seriously, we did the "go the basement we see a tornado" thing the other day (for reals) and site traffic has been off the hook.

A couple of friends told me about the tornado, so I had to check it out. And you gotta love hyperlinking. Since we're on the subject, I see Pat Cunningham is back in the fold. Not a shock, and everyone's a winner.
