i have not been sharing too much baking lately
so i want to break the silence with this
this bad boy... baking bad with this blueberry muffin...
i am sure that one has been taken by now!
i haven't fully shared with you my sweet and deep
love affair with nigel slater... i can only read him in
small spurts of time...we share a super concentrated love
for one other... i mean, ripe, tender, notes from the larder..
he kills me with love, beauty, knowledge and passion ;)
so here is a little ditty on this
blueberry muffin (cupcake)
