Ella turned two last week and these two years have been terrific, just like her! She is our bundle of joy in every sense of the phrase. We remember bringing her home two years ago. It was raining very heavily. She was carefully wrapped in a blanket and placed on a soft piece of cloth at the bottom of the basket. I remember the look in her eyes, there was a little separation anxiety, a bit of fear and overwhelming innocence. We brought her home as a temporary arrangement that we made for our friend, to relieve her off the continuous attention Ella and her siblings demanded, and before we knew she was already a part of our family, never to be returned and well integrated. Ella changed our lives!
We wanted to cook something special for her, since she is not allowed to eat chocolate. What better than the simple, yet scrumptious vanilla muffins? One can get really very creative with the muffins. They are not too sweet, a little crunchy outside and soft and spongy inside and can be decorated them in a zillion ways. All in all it’s a great baking treat and we try to make it easy so that everyone’s kitty party, get together, tea discussions become a little more delectable.
On the occasion of Ella’s birthday, we present to you, our simplified version of the vanilla muffins. Hope you find them as easy as we do.
Happy Birthday Ella, our beloved doggie pooh!!!
