Here’s a little story about me:

I was a “Military Brat” growing up. When I was in high school we uprooted again and were stationed in Montgomery, Alabama.  While there, my brother and I thought it would be funny to give each other silly little nicknames that we used with a southern drawl to tease each other. I was Bubbles, my little brother was Bubba and my mom, well she was Lil’ Mama! For what ever reason, I have never stopped calling her this!

So, today I am sharing My Sweet Lil’ Mama’s Banana Bread Muffins!
