I love muffins. I was on a huge blueberry muffin for months. I came across this fresh strawberry muffin and couldn’t wait to try it. But of course everything went wrong. First, I went to make them and my son had eaten all my strawberries, something I would normally never complain about. The next time, we were going to go strawberry picking, and that turned out to be a complete bust. So I finally bought some more and made them. They are super simple, and so moist and yummy. So I thought I would share the recipe with you to try for yourself. I would love to hear what you think of them.
