I promised Savin’s REU a “welcome to the department, my name is Kat and I bake people things” blueberry scone. Alas, the scones were pretty much demolished in the Boeing meeting. I have a reputation to maintain, so I reappeared Thursday with the blueberry muffins from the CI Best Light Recipe book. They were, of course, absurdly delicious. They went together by a creaming method; an explanation is provided in the text–did I mention how much I love that?–but assembling via creaming while calling it a muffin just doesn’t sit well with me. I used buttermilk instead of yogurt, even though the book told me not to do so; but they were still awesome. Oh, and Savin’s lab thinks I’m the shizz. Most of the time.
