By now you should know how obsessed with muffins I am. You should also know how much Joel does not like breakfast foods. So, when I tell you that these are probably my favorite new muffin ever, you should believe me because I eat a lot of muffins, and I’m super trustworthy. But if you are a little hesitant, and you need a little more convincing, I can tell you that Joel not only likes these cranberry orange muffins, he LOVES them! He actually went back for seconds, two days in a row! And he could not stop raving about them. And he has already asked me to make them again, twice, in fact! So you know these are some goooood muffins!!
To me, these cranberry orange muffins just scream “Thanksgiving”. These are dense yet moist at the same time. I love the tartness from the cranberries and the oranges (such an awesome combination!) which is offset perfectly by the sweetness of the cinnamon crumb topping. Speaking of which, I think I must be addicted to crumb topping because everything I have made lately has one!
I was soo lucky to have two of my absolute best friends over this weekend! They flew all the way out here for a mere 24 hours, and it was awesome to see them! We had a total lock-in, and only left the house once. We had a fantastic time eating too much food and just sitting around talking and cuddling on the couch. We even snuck in a nap while watching “The Princess Bride”. I wish they could have been here longer, but I am so thankful for the time that I got to spend with them!
