Strawberry and Rhubarb Muffins


I love making strawberry and rhubarb muffins because I'm able to combine two of my favorite summer fruits. Both can be eaten on their own, but combining them in this recipe makes for a really special culinary experience.

After you chop up the berries and fruit, set them aside in a bowl for about ten minutes to half an hour. Just let them sit in their own juices...it'll taste all that more delicious if you do!

I want to take the time to give Ana from "wannabevegan.wordpress.com blog" for giving me permission to use her muffin photo. It's beautifully baked and photograped and looks delish. Check out more of Ana's photography on flickr. Thanks, Ana!
