Aislynn (the heorine in my WIP) notices that Camille makes raspberry muffins in an effort to gain Scott’s attention. Aislynn is a mermaid and new to the ways of the humans so she has difficulty adpating. Once she see the results Camille get with the muffins, Aislynn decides it worth a try.
The result? Check out this Six on Sunday 🙂
But for the tease here is the recipte Aislynn tried to make…They are from my pre-diet days and are toooooooo die for.
