Strawberry Muffins

Strawberry Muffins

Strawberry Muffins are sweet, moist and delicious.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I LOVE MUFFINS!  They are so quick to make and perfect for breakfast or for snacking.  Strawberries are probably my favorite fruit.  I tried to grow them in my garden last summer, but the spring was so late that I didn’t have any luck, so I will try again this year.  My grandma used to take us to pick strawberries from a commercial farm when we were kids.  I thought it was too much work, but I always enjoyed eating the strawberries!  I especially enjoyed my grandma’s strawberry pie, and now I think I ‘ll be getting some fresh strawberries and making one of those.  Stay tuned for strawberry pie!  Okay, back to the muffins.  Quick, delicious and tasty!
