Luke has stayed very busy in the kitchen, and I have not done the best job doing my part and keeping up on my blog. I mean a promise is a promise.
He got two recipes out at once this time. He was responsible for making desert for two different family Thanksgivings. He looked though the cookbook and he chose the Zucchini Carrot Muffins and the Banana Blueberry Muffins. Some of the ingredients like for example brown rice flour were different for Luke to use. He was very careful when using it because it is quite expensive as far as flour goes.
Before he started he thought these were going to be easy recipes, and that his favorite would be the blueberry banana, not that he has anything against zucchini and carrots, but as far as muffins go he was not too sure about them. He said, “Well, I will trust Giada, she would not put anything in her cookbook that is not good.”
Making muffins from scratch was harder than Luke thought. We have made muffins before, but never from scratch and never all on his own. It was a process, and by the time we were done the kitchen was a disaster zone with flour and bananas everywhere, including Luke's hair. He was a champ and cleaned up his own mess because that is what good chefs do. I did feel bad after about 30 minutes and helped him out.
When it was all said and done he had his muffins ready to go and he was surprised to find out that he actually liked the Zucchini Carrot Muffins the best. We all agreed!
Stay tuned for the next recipe…and Luke would love to hear from you, if you leave a comment I will be sure he gets the message!
