Dry Chocolate Muffins
Hi.
I can't believe it's February.
And February 8th.
What happened?

Anyway, I tried a recipe for double chocolate muffins. See above. Pretty, huh? Well, they were dry. I thought it was me so I made them again. Dry again. So...that recipe needs some alterations, or I'll try another cookbook.

So, instead of a recipe, I'm leaving you with photos of our Los Angeles winter. We finally had some rain earlier this week (we so need rain as we are in a MEGA drought), and it cleared everything up. The Farmer's Market was packed and the beach was full of volleyball players, runners, bikers, and sailboats in the ocean.

I'll probably never be able to afford the real estate here, but I can't imagine living anywhere else. If you are in a cold place, I hope it's not too bad...and come out to visit us in Los Angeles when you get a chance. :)

Go Olympics! I support the athletes and respect their hard work and dedication, but Putin...so wrong.

AWWW!! We've got a foot of snow on the ground and expect 17 degrees tonight.

Thank you, thank you, thank you ... for the fresh flowers and fruits and vegetables. Gives me the courage to hang on for just another month of two.

Beautiful pics and since I too live in LA I know what you mean. Too bad about the muffins, they look great and make me want to find a recipe using cocoa and choc. chips--items always on my shelf. Hope you come up with one soon!

Aww, how disappointing about the muffins. They really do look good, what a shame! I look forward to the perfected recipe. :) The produce at your farmer's market looks beautiful and fresh though!

Hi, Mary!!!
I just bought my first bundt pan! My parentes are going to bring it to me (we don't have bundt pan in Brazil!). I'm very excited to bake beautiful bundts!!!!
