Apple of my Eye

Meet Mackenzie, or Kennis as I call her. Abigail, my soon 3yr
old little princess, had a really hard time saying Mackenzie or Kenzie when
she was born, so Kenzie became Kennis. Kennis will be 8 months
next week and Abbie now knows how to say Kenzie,
but I still call her Kennis.. Im the only one that still does.
People might think it sounds funny, but I can just blame it on my
Swedish background. I can pretty much get away with anything over
here.. people just smile and say 'oh, she's Swedish'.

Mr.Viking's (who really isn't a Viking at all, he's from the midwest..
as far away from a viking as you can get) bff is getting married
in London in May and my baby brother (not technically a baby..
but you know) will marry the love of his life in Sweden in June.
I had a baby 8months ago and I need to get my butt in shape
(evening gown shape), so the recipe I'm about to post is nothing
I will make at the moment. But I wish I was, because these
muffins and to D I E for. Or atleast break-your-diet-worthy.
I made them after I had Kennis and my extended family came
over to see her. I made them for Thanksgiving and for Christmas.
I made them for my birthday and I will make them for Abbies
birthday. I am obsessed with these darn muffins. I can't have any
at the moment, but YOU can. So go make them.. NOW!!
