Where did all this snow come from?! With last week being a sunny 40 degrees this week was surely not expected. With the snow teeming over the balcony and the cars buried deep, this snow day gives me a perfect chance to whip up some tasty muffins with the ingredients already on hand; no grocery shopping today people! It is definitely a pajama and Cranberry Orange Muffin kind of day.
This weekend has been the most successful and productive weekend I have had in a long time. I have been incredibly motivated to work on and finish all my projects, presentations, and papers for school, clean my whole house, and even bake muffins! After making Pumpkin Cream Cheese I had a bowl of pumpkin sitting in my fridge just waiting for me to make something delicious. I was about to make pumpkin bread but it wasn’t until I finished making the batter that I realized I don’t have a loaf pan! So muffins they are. And boy are they delicious. With the tart tang of cranberries and smooth sweet chocolate, it doesn’t get much better.
I officially own a muffin tin! I have always wanted one but never got around to getting one until yesterday. To celebrate I decided to make scrumptious carrot cake muffins loaded with cream cheese frosting. The best part of these muffins is the design the cream cheese makes when you bake them. I think this one looks like a Star Wars tie fighter.
