Bake It, Make It & Take It ~ Strawberry Muffin in a Basket!
Spring is here, the calendar says so! That is just so hard to believe as we watched the snow fall almost all day today. It was raw and windy....and snowy! We came to visit our kids in Vermont and we get snowed on. It was a cruel April Fools joke to play on us in the frozen north. Tell Old Man Winter to take a hike! We deserve Spring!
Strawberries and Spring
It doesn't matter where you live ~ New England, Florida or Australia! Anytime is a good time to make a batch of luscious Strawberry Muffins. We've been able to get some really delicious strawberries on sale the last few weeks. So, to celebrate Spring, Stampin' Mama's one and only Erika Martin, whipped up a batch of these easy muffins today.
Because we're in cahoots with each other, she used my recipe for Strawberry Muffins, and she says they were fantastic! The kids ate the first batch, so she had to make another batch just to take pictures and finish her muffin baskets! This muffin recipe is actually three muffins in one. It's a basic recipe that has variations for The Best Blueberry Muffins and another one for Apple Cinnamon Muffins. Make them all, they freeze great!
Erika's brainchild ~ Bake It, Make It & Take It ~ has been so popular, that we decided to make it a regular feature. We really do strive to bring you a weekly project, but with Easter and so many other obligations on both our parts, we totally missed a week. We're sorry :-( We hope to get back on track right away!
Stamping and Scrapbooking???
I'll be the first to admit that I know almost nothing about stamping and scrapbooking, and my words and descriptions will probably sound silly to you. But for those of you who do stamp, you'll HAVE to see what Erika has come up with this time! She started with a basic origami box, then used things like, Rose Red Prints Designer Series paper, GinaK's new Bling & Dazzle Mega Rhinestone brads and Scalloped Circle punches. Like I said, I'm challenged when it comes to crafts! You'll just have to take my word for it and go see her Strawberry Muffin In A Basket for yourself.
