muffins instead of cookies

Saturday, March 05, 2016

Don't these paper cups just make you wanna bake?  And make cupcakes?  Or muffins?  Or eat a muffin?  Go ahead, please, have a muffin!
Waking up before the house is awake is one of my favorite things in life.  Especially if I am knitting.  Or baking.  I love when I can fill the house with yummy scents as everyone wakes up.  And these muffins just didn't disappoint. 
The reviews of this recipe just confused me.  So many people substituting and/or making suggestions.  I decided to just go with the recipe.  (I love the New York Times Cooking App.)  They turned out fabulous. (I sort of recommend reading the article about baking the perfect muffin.) The streusel topping is a must.  They are supposed to be healthier than not.  Do you think they are still healthy if you eat 4 for breakfast? (Darn muffin cups.)
I'm headed out of town tomorrow so I'm gonna wind this fun skein and cast on for a new pair of socks.  It's been a while since I have made a pair. So excited to get started and watch the stripes come to life.  (Trailing Clouds seems to sell out quickly, but updates their site every Thursday.)

Happy Saturday!
