Fav Music Question...

Ok, question time!! I'm super curious, and just have to ask: what is your favorite kind of music??
I love everything, truly. I used to say I like everything but rap, because that was the only area of music I couldn't get into. I've found it inspiring the last few years though, so now I'm an all around music lover!!
Rock, Alternative, Classics, R&B, Rap, Country, Hip Hop, Dance, House Music, Techno, Disco (yes, that stuff), Kids, Christian, Reggae, Indie, Punk, Pop, Screamo, Metal, Inspirational, Operatic...seriously, everything!! Even music from other countries, in other languages - I don't have to understand the words, to understand and connect to a song. I love it all, and everything has it's place. I need it all.
What kinds of music do you like?

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Have you ever heard of these?  They're amazing!!  Bananas, chocolate chips, and warm muffins - what's not to love?

I'm not a huge banana fan, myself.  I get the occasional craving, but in general, I stick with berries and nuts.

I do, however love chocolate!  I've only found one mix of chocolate and bananas I've liked (we all love those, don't we?) but this is a good second.

To Ken, I like bananas a ton, so it's really saying something that he likes these muffins more than me.  He loves obsesses over adores them - go figure!

For those who may want to try this, here's a quick recipe.  It's super easy to make from scratch, and takes about 35 mins total.


~ Prep time: 15 mins
~ Cook time: 18 - 20 mins
~ Oven temp: 350 F
~Makes 12 regular sized muffins


~ 1 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
~ 1 1/2 Tsp baking soda
~ 3 TBsp sugar
(we recommend raw cane sugar for the best flavor)
~ 1/4 Tsp salt

~ 1 LG egg
~ 3 TBsp buttermilk
(you can substitute 3 tbsp regular milk and 1/4 tbsp lemon juice if need be)
~ 1/2 Cup (1 Stick) butter, melted
~ 2-3 ripe bananas, mashed

~ 1/2 Cup chocolate chips

--For the bananas: if they are large, it's best to use 2, otherwise it will be a very strong banana taste.  They should be pretty ripe - blackening, like ones you'd use for banana bread.

--For the chocolate chips: you can always add more if you'd like, depending on how chocolaty you want the muffins.
       **Be sure to stir and mix in the melted butter before you add the chocolate chips, otherwise half your chocolate will melt into the batter!


1) Pre-heat oven to 350 F.

2) In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking soda.  Mix together lightly.

3) Melt the butter.

4) Add egg, butter, and buttermilk to the flour mixture.

5) Add bananas and mix together.

6) Coat muffin pan cups in butter/non-stick spray, or line with paper muffin cups.

7) Add chocolate chips.

8) Place in middle rack in pre-heated oven, and cook for 18 mins
(20 mins for cold oven).

Once they're fully cooked, remove from pan and place on cooling rack or serving tray.  

Serve, and enjoy!!
