A few days ago I made these muffins with blueberries and most of all I wanted to try the paper molds, they are very good because they do not stick or burn.
Now that I see them I think they could also be made for Christmas.
We are already so close. I've been watching recipes, I always watch a lot but of course I can not do all of them and I'm on the computer for a while.
But I like to look at everything Christmas and of course I think about my mom.
Esperanza wants to make the Christmas Cake my mom made,
it's absolutely delicious, and really smell like Christmas (by the spices)
I did it here years ago if someone wants to see it, just like stollen, my mom's Christmas cake is the best I've tasted. The cookies .., Salmon puff pastry. so many things. Once again I know I can not do everything. But Christmas is here and is wonderful :)
