The stockinette portion of Ishbel is absolutely flying! Talk about a satisfying knit. No visible progress to report on my 28thirty sleeves, but I am dutifully working on it at home.  It has taken me twice as long to upload photos for this post because I’ve been simultaneously eating half of one of these espresso banana nut muffins:

Soon I’m going to heat up some cheesy Sweet Potato Spoon Bread leftovers for lunch:

Both of these recipes are from Supernatural Cooking, the most recent cookbook from Heidi over at 101cookbooks. My kitchen binder of internet recipes has a healthy selection from her blog, and this cookbook does not disappoint — I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve made from it, and the book itself is gorgeous. Also, one more plug for those muffins — they use white-whole wheat flour, natural cane sugar, less butter than you’d expect, and yogurt. I was expecting the white-whole wheat flour to yield a pretty dense, dry muffin, and I was happily surprised with the result. These are light and moist, and I will certainly be making them again!

Boh is pouting because he can’t have either of these treats. I promise I’ll take him on a longer W-A-L-K today to make up for it.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I spotted Heidi’s new cookbook when I was back East, at Anthropologie of all places, and have been coveting it since. Thanks for the tip! I’ll have to add it to my wish list.

  2. The Ishbel looks great — I love the color! Hmm … those muffins look mighty good. And I do have some bananas that need to be used ….

  3. Wow – Ishbel is giong so fast! And it looks so pretty – what a great color. Espresso banana nut muffins…stomach is totally grumbling.
