In the movie Men Don't Leave, Jessica Lange's character becomes obsessed with baking while suffering from insomnia brought on by the stresses of recent widowhood. Undeterred by the heat of a Baltimore summer night she pulls pan after pan of muffins from the oven only to eventually fling them out from her upper floor apartment window. As far as I'm concerned, muffin defenestration ought to be a crime. I have been baking up a storm myself, of late. Brought on by who knows what, I'm just going with it. Pumpkin bread, peanut butter chocolate chip brownies, cinnamon rolls, brownies with chocolate buttercream frosting, buttermilk scones. Tonight it's blueberry muffins and I promise you not a single muffin will be ejected from any nearby window! They're just out of the oven and the house smells heavenly. Wish you were here!
