Remember when I made Apple Cafe Muffins?  They’ve become a regular brunch occurrence in Zen Apartment 2.0.  Robin makes breakfast burritos while I chop apples.  We take turns choosing the soundtrack for brunch, seeing where the Genius mix button takes us.  It usually takes us to gangster rap, which really amps up brunch in general.

So begins our play by play of the Muffin process.  The ingredients’ class photo.  Tallest in the back!  Don’t make faces, vinegar!  Stop blocking cinnamon out, salt!
