|view from my kitchen this morning|
I had to get up extra early today as hubby needed to get to work even earlier then normal.
It was quiet and I got to watch the sun rise and change the skies colors.
it was a treat...
the recipe called for orange zest...
but I could not bare the idea of dried zest so I opened my eyes wide when handling the mandolin and paid close attention.
I mean making muffins usually doesn't have an element of danger; stir and fold seems to be common place ...but zesting is a whole new level and packs the possibility of shedding blood and or skin.
Needless to say, I paid attention to my actions at this early hour.
The muffins needed to bake a little longer then I expected and the end result is a little dry.
I am pretty sure I know what needs to be changed. Once again I took one of my trusty loaf recipes and made them into muffins.
Another yummy hit with tea or milk...but you do need to drink something with them.

no fingers were harmed during the making of these muffins
