Hope you had a very peaceful weekend. We made a four day weekend out of it; spending time with Warren’s family in Canaan Valley, WV.
As the annual trip to Canaan approached, we were filled to the brim with excitement. We knew what was in store for us; jeep and hiking excursions, cooking, and most importantly, quality time with loved ones. Canaan brings family members from West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, and Colorado to celebrate togetherness.
As we do every year, we explored Dolly Sods. Dolly Sods is a playground for rock hopping, meandering, and break taking views.
Amongst other excursions, Olson Observation Tower, Table Rock, and an unexpected waterfall find.
We will share more about our trip later this week.
On to the muffins! A few days ago, we received some Pure Genius Brownies from a giveaway held by Steph of angelsfoodshare. What to do with the brownies was, of course, the next question. Straight from the package was tempting; crumbled on top of oatmeal or ice cream came to mind. At the same time, we also had plans to make Keys To The Cucina’s banana muffins . Her muffins include bacon, but we wanted to keep them vegetarian. She suggested using chocolate morsels, and that was our “aha moment”. Trade the bacon for brownies! Chocolate Brownie Banana Muffins.
