Strawberry Lemonade Muffins

Strawberry Lemonade Muffins

The best pink lemonades I’ve had have actually been strawberry lemonades, made with fresh lemonade and fresh, bright pink strawberries. They have more lemon than berry, but that berry makes the lemonade all the sweeter. These Strawberry Lemonade Muffins mirror that, although they do have more of a yellow color than that pink lemonade might! To make them, I mixed finely chopped strawberries into the ... Read More »

Scones have been on my mind for the last couple of weeks, but I haven’t’ been inspired to do much aside from some of my usual favorites.
