Recipes: Turmeric, Banana & Blood Orange Muffins

It was a beautiful sunny Saturday, I had all the windows wide open in the house, music playing loud and the sweet promise of spring elevated my spirits.  Then, just like that, I woke up to inches of snow and ice the next morning and dreams of sundresses and ripe fruit sunk back into the quiet folds of my heart.
