Fresh Baked Muffins!

Cinnamon Pecan Crunch Muffins

Who doesn’t love a fresh baked muffin?

Whenever I dine out somewhere, I like to try new things. Usually the new dish inspires me to try to recreate the flavors in a new way. So, I am continually experimenting in my kitchen with new recipes and new flavor combinations. This week my focus was on muffins! My kitchen was a flurry of experimenting and taste testing. We all agreed this is a winning flavor! The batter is so versatile, I have created seven new muffin recipes with the batter that I will share over the next few weeks. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
