I often search in vain for a recipe until I finally get impatient and go about experimenting without any instructions. Very often, this ends in a less than tasty dish. But sometimes, the result is a pleasant surprise.
I didn’t measure any ingredients, so I can’t provide a recipe for these coconut apricot muffins, but that’s okay because they aren’t perfected by any means.
I love the flavor combination, though, and the texture is moist and yummy, if ever so slightly heavy… but, they are muffins, not cupcakes. I used whole wheat pastry flour, peach preserves as a sweetener, almond extract, dried apricots, and shredded coconut.
large bodies of water, particularly the ocean, and everything that goes with it: the endless shades of blue and green and grey and white, the sounds of waves and seagulls, its expansiveness, its restorative nature.
natural light. natural light. natural light! (i need it)
