Food to read and write

This is a little-known fact, but I also have another blog devoted to FOOD!  I don't update it very often because Thinking Thoughts and my photography blog keep me very busy, but there are times when I'll come up with a recipe or make something fantastic that I just have to share and, rather than try and make it writing or photography related, I just stick it up on Tasty Ideas.

Being a writer, it's important to have great snack items around. I'd say the same is true for readers!  I'm talking healthy, tasty, feel good foods that are quick and easy so as not to tie up your hands for too long. It's good to take a break, but the end goal is to "get back to it" - you either want to finish writing the next great novel or reading it!
Banana Applesauce Muffins

Knowing this, I thought I'd share one of my favorite recipes from Tasty IdeasMy Banana Applesauce Muffins are by far the favorite on my food blog.  They are easy to make, healthy, and taste great - a must have for me and for a blog with "tasty" in the title.

There are many alternatives to the recipe as well - feel free to add in chia or flax seeds, nuts of any kind, dried cranberries or raisins, or even chocolate chips (though that kind of defeats the "healthy" purpose a bit).

So, go on into the kitchen, give your fingers (or eyes) a little break and whip yourself up a batch of muffins. They will be great for (shorter) future breaks and I'm sure your family will appreciate them too ;)
