I love when Chocolate Time rolls around… And guess what?? It’s time. Making up a menu for a Family Gathering (a.k.a. Reunion),  my sister-in-law (Hi, Maren!) and I decided on a breakfast of muffins. Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, to be specific.

Mmm… muffins.

Tasty. Portable. Perfect (when they have chocolate in ‘em!).
