A bite of sunshine...


...to celebrate the fabulous weather we're expecting this weekend! I got this recipe for Good Morning Muffins, from The Pioneer Woman Cooks, and had to make them, like, immediately. Some recipes touch me that way. They involve a lot of sugar and marmalade, but suprisingly (if you read PW Cooks regularly), not a lot of fat. I didn't have shortening in the house, used all butter, and they turned out just fine. And, since they're more like a treat/cake, I used my mini muffin pan, which worked out perfectly. Next time I think I'll try them with apricot jam and maybe incorprate some slivered almonds in the topping.

Get the recipe here. Enjoy!
