Berry Delicious Muffins

Right now, 60% of the US is digging themselves out from one of the strongest winter storms in decades. When you're trapped inside your house because the snow has barricaded you in... turn your oven to 375 degrees and bake something yummy.

I was born and raised in the northeast and I feel a little guilty about writing this post.
So, to those with shovels in hand I offer you these words... Hang in there, and remember that yummy things will be growing soon and showing up at your local market.

Every Wednesday I try to visit our local Farmers Market.

I have my favorite vendors and characters that I enjoy visiting.  The barefooted lettuce farmer and the local University's organic hydroponic veggies stand are two of my favorites.

I'm always on a mission when I arrive to grab my seasonal goodies.

Fresh strawberries from the market.
It's the beginning of strawberry season here in Florida and I couldn't wait another week for these red delicious jewels.

I  also grabbed a bag of navel oranges. 
I was able to get home and slice the bag to bring to Boo's class for snack.

Every year around this time the strawberries look irreversible and I end up coming home with too many.
My house prefers fresh fruit rather than cooked.
But what do you do if you have more than you need?

And this is how the Berry Delicious Muffin recipe came to life.
