These were pretty quick to mix together. One good thing that happened is the buttermilk incident. The recipe called for buttermilk. I swear, 75% of the time that I need buttermilk, I don't have it. My mom taught me that you can make your own with milk and vinegar, but I've always had to Google it just to be sure that I had the right measurements. Tonight was the first time that I just did it. I finally memorized it! This is nothing huge, because it's just a cup of milk and a tablespoon of vingegar, but I take it as a sign of my confidence in the kitchen! I finally trusted myself and only got nervous after I poured it in. Luckily, I was okay :)

The good news is that everyone loves them! The recipe only makes 9 muffins, which I was happy about because we always seem to throw out my baked goods, but I actually think there is a chance these will all go. Mom, Kenzie, Mark and Rachael already had one. Mom, who was a big doubter, was pleasantly surprised and rated it a 8. Kenzie refuses to give numbers because she says she is against the "Richter scale," but she said she likes them better than any other muffin I've made. Success!
