Essential Ingredients: Muffins and Jazz

Successful Blueberry Muffins

I make muffins from scratch! Above are two kinds of muffins, blueberry and banana. The blueberry turned out great. The banana, well, let’s just say they ended up in the garbage.

The problem?  Interruptions during the prep process. First, the banana muffin mixture was put into the papers without eggs in it, so the batter was scooped back into the bowl. Eggs were mixed in and batter was put back into the papers. Then we realized we forgot to put in the baking powder. This time we just left them in the oven and hoped for the best.

Unfortunately, they were the worst. But undeterred we made blueberry muffins and they turned out great!

So what happens when the ingredients aren’t right? You get yucky muffins…or bad jazz. If the elements don’t come together just right, jazz just isn’t…jazz.

So here’s some really awesome jazz: “In A Mellow Tone” sung by, of course, Ella Fitzgerald.
