Hi Erin. I just wanted to pop back over and tell you that I made your muffins this weekend. They were really good. I had some more last night and ate them with a little bit of raspberry jam. Thanks for sharing the recipe. PS: I hope it was okay, but I posted the recipe on my blog and listed you as the source. I ought to have asked permission first. I hope you don't mind.

I was feeling down in the dumps when I opened my computer this morning--even more down in the dumps when I clicked over to tasty kitchen and saw all of the beautiful recipes and photographs. Then, as I was scrolling through the latest recipe uploads, I found your muffins and I thought, "Oh, I need some of those. They would make everything feel good and warm and safe." I can see from your pictures how light and airy they must be. I think that I am going to whip out a batch before I go to work. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

P.S. Regarding your "About" page. You said that nobody looks at the About page. To tell you the truth, I always read bloggers' About pages. It helps me to make a connection with the blogger so that I can better understand their writing and their lives. Afterall, blogs are an extension of the person. And now that I have written all of this, I realize that I have taken a whole bunch of space in the comment section of YOUR blog. Oops. But, I just wanted you to know that a perfect stranger out here in the crazy world of food blogging is giving you a two thumbs up for being a mom and raising a family and writing this blog to share a little bit about you and your life. Well done.
