Fresh Strawberry Muffins


Wouldn't it be great to wake up in the morning to the smell of fresh strawberry muffins baking in the oven? Well, believe it or not, that's exactly what hubby woke up to this morining! All those ripe, red strawberries! It just makes sense to buy some and bake some fresh strawberry muffins.

I blame it on my trip to the farmers' market on Friday. I mean, who could resist the sight and smell of those ruby red strawberries?

Just the thought of popping a sweet, plump berry into my mouth...and then the owner caught sight of me, and he could tell there was a sale in the air! It was almost a natural reflex...my hand reaching for my wallet! The deed was done! Two plastic containers brimming with delicious looking berries! I honestly couldn't wait to get home and review my recipe file!

Lucky for me that I've got a collection of great strawberry muffins to choose from. Here's an old favorite...
