My Little Oasis in the Big City

I’ve been looking forward to creating a mini garden all winter – fresh herbs at my fingertips – my little oasis in the city.   We had such a great time shopping around the garden center; I had to remind myself of the small apartment we would be heading back to a number of times, otherwise I would have come home with a full yard’s worth of plants and herbs!

I have, of course, become a little obsessed with the herbs 🙂 , so I tried a recipe with all fresh herbs to make muffins. They turned out great and were refreshing snacks during the week at work.

Finely chop the herbs and scallions

In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, thyme, basil, scallions, parmesan and lemon zest

In a separate bowl, beat the olive oil, yogurt, milk and eggs until well combined

Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until the wet ingredients are completely combined with the dry
