Happy (almost) Weekend! I wanted to share this super delicious recipe that comes from one of Ina Garten’s cookbooks, in particular, the Barefoot Contessa- how easy is that? cookbook. This book is a collection of Garten’s easiest and time-saving recipes that are perfect for those with a busy lifestyle. I decided to modify her Old-Fashioned Banana Cake & Cream Cheese Frosting recipe and bake these super cute Mini Cream Cheese Filled Banana Muffins! Check out the recipe below!
