I love banana nut bread and muffins, so I thought to add a little twist with the Pumpkin Spiced Banana Nut Muffins!

My son and I love muffins. There are times when I buy them from the grocery store bakery!  While they are so delicious, they are costly! I used to buy so many that I’d save the plastic containers they come in to reuse to water my plants in.

Why Green?

Well, the color green is known to help productivity – which is why so many people have it in offices and work areas. It is a calming color, but somehow also manages to pep people up.
