Sunday I looked in my fridge and saw some strawberries begging to be used before they went bad. I’m guilty of always buying fruit and never using it before it loses its luster. I thought, strawberry pancakes. Bad idea, I was out of syrup. Bummer. Activate Plan B.
I had a long day ahead of me of Holiday decorating and needed a sugar boost. Strawberry muffins popped into my mind next. But what could I pair it with. I didn’t just want strawberry. I was out of bananas. That would have worked beautifully. So I did what any normal person searching out a unique recipe would do (I don’t always just use my recipes believe it or not.) I googled “strawberry muffins recipe blog” and came upon this wonderful recipe. Strawberry Cinnamon Muffins from The Cottage Home.
The combination of strawberries and cinnamon sounded delicious and looking at her baked muffins my mouth began to water. I could almost smell them baking. I hurriedly whipped up a batch and popped them in the oven.
Yup, just as I had imagined they would smell.The aroma filled the whole house and made it feel Christmas-ey. I paired my muffins with a mimosa. Alright, maybe I paired my mimosas with a muffin. I needed an extra cheery kick to get to the Holiday decorating. Can you blame me? Everyone knows that this time of year is extra stressful.
I also couldn’t help but think these would be amazing with apples in place of the strawberry. Definitely going to try the apples next time.So even though I didn’t get my pancakes, I ended up with something much better and discovered a new blog to check out. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Be blessed and be well and eat lots of muffins!
