I’ve clearly got summer on the brain, what with the mango muffins from two weeks ago and this week’s blueberry ones. What can I say? I’m a little sick of snow and negative temperatures. Windchill? More like wind, chill! I regret nothing – not these unseasonal muffins, and not that terrible pun.
As usual, I have no idea how time works, other than that it goes by way too fast. One minute, it’s January, and the next, it’s the Fourth of July! The next time I blink it’ll be Thanksgiving.
But back to July. These red-white-blue muffins are the perfect way to celebrate the holiday, even if they turned out more pink-beige-aqua.
Bring on the heat wave, summer’s finally here! To be honest though, I could really do with a few more months of spring seeing as how we went from freezing cold to unbearable heat with only about 2 weeks of real spring weather in between. Is Mars inhabitable yet? Where are our space colonies with perfectly controlled temperatures??
But back to the point – these muffins. Your kitchen will be sweltering but it’s totally worth it. So turn on your A/C (or crack open a window), try not to melt, and enjoy one (or an entire plateful) or these.
Get your bracket ready, it’s March Madness! Or more appropriately, Marshmallow Madness. Instead of muffins every Monday, I’ll be doing pairs of marshmallows every week. To pick the lucky recipes, I wrote down all the ones from the book on slips of paper and drew names out of a hat.
Here’s what the fates decided. All in all, it’s a pretty great variety.
Key lime pie vs. buttered rum
Kool-Aid vs. caramel swirl
Pineapple rosemary vs. strawberry
Cookies & cream vs. margarita
So without further ado, round 1!
