Right about this time of year, I start to feel like winter has a pretty firm hold on us here in New Jersey. What with the bone-chilling temps and the weekly snowstorms, it seems as though it will last forever. Of course, I know that won't happen (I think...).
So to help myself through the winter doldrums, I baked up a batch of luscious, summery Blueberry Banana Muffins. The recipe comes via the good folks over at Food52 and it is a winner! They are not overly sweet, so you can enjoy them for breakfast (as I did several times last week). Or with a nice hot cuppa tea in the late afternoon (rooting on my favorite team).
These muffins are nicely moist, thanks to the banana and the buttermilk. And the addition of whole wheat flour lends a healthy note. Try them next time you need a lovely, albeit brief, respite from the howling winds.

One other delicious item I want to clue you in on are these terrific granola bars from Nature's Path. I make it a habit to always have some granola bars on hand for those times when I need a small snack at work or on a road trip. I stumbled upon these at my local Costco last week and decided to give them a try. Although intrigued by two of my favorite flavors (pumpkin and maple), I feared they'd be alot like other granola bars...you know - the dreaded cardboard. Much to my happy surprise, they are not at all cardboard-y. They are chewy, moist, flavorful, and packed with all kinds of stuff that's good for you. You're welcome.
