Strawberry Muffins from the NoblePig

My mom and I love to cook. Whenever we find a recipe that we'd like to try, we set it aside and hopefully someday get around to actually making it. We decided that we needed an entire weekend to make all (or just 13) of the recipes that we had been holding onto.

This is that weekend. So, expect some posts of our baking highlights over the next few days.

We started our morning with this:

What? What's your point? (All of this butter didn't go into the muffins, so don't freak out!)

Ever since I saw the Strawberry Yogurt Muffins recipe that Cathy from The Noble Pig posted about I knew we had to try them.

Her recipe is here. We followed her recipe exactly except that our store didn't have coarse sugar, even though our store is supposed to be the biggest in Texas. So, instead we bought and used Sugar in the Raw. I don't think it was the same, but it turned out ok.

Here are the muffins before they went into the oven.

And here they are afterwards. We can't stress enough how good these muffins are. You simply must stop whatever you are doing and go make them now.

The muffin part is so light and airy. I think they would be good with blueberries as well.

So far we have made 10 of our 13 planned recipes, and this is one of our favorites.
