  1. YUMMMMM! Do you think I could use frozen berries, thawed of course? It would probably turn my muffins pink, which Maggie would delight in :)

  2. They look delicious! I have strawberries in my fridge at this very moment, so we'll be trying these in the morning. Muffins = LOVE at our house, too. <#

  3. Yum! I love muffins too, but sadly my children love cupcakes much more.

  4. These look quite yummy. I'll have to try the recipe when fresh strawberries start here. They are terribly late this year due to our bad spring, which makes this strawberry lover quite upset :(

  5. These look so delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  6. YUM!:) I love strawberries and muffins, so I'll have to give these a try!

  7. Never ever heard of strawberry muffins. Blueberry..poppyseed and Bran. That is my world.

    I will branch out!!

  8. I just made strawberry muffins for the first time last week. A little different than this recipe so I'll have to compare. I loved them though. I had never baked with strawberries before. I was wondering how long the strawberries stayed fresh after baking. I guess the answer is to eat them all right away and it won't be an issue:)

  9. Oh my more yummy recipes to put into my Billie Jo cookbook :) I do not think I have had strawberry muffins before. We have a strawberry stand just down the street that I visit often. How long do these muffins last and do you keep then in the fridge?

  10. Those look amazing! Gotta try those!


Thanks so much for saying hello!
