Strawberry Muffins [sms]

Photobucket
This week's Sweet Melissa Sundays pick, Orange Blueberry Muffins with Pecan Crumble, was chosen by Chaya of Sweet & Savory. I actually only made strawberry muffins with a sugar topping because two words - FINALS WEEK. Next week is finals so all I've basically been trying to do is sleep, eat, and study.

I made half the recipe and ended up with 8 and used a basket of some farm fresh strawberries from a place near campus for a $1. I also added more butter and cream to make up for the fact that most people found this recipe to be too dry. I also pulled them out at about the 20 minute mark. I have a few left for the next couple of days - NO TIME TO EAT...STUDY STUDY STUDY.

I gave a couple of these to my friend who is also studying lots...like everyone else. So onwards to sleeping and studying!

SORRY for the super short post, but I'm just super tired right now. It's been a crazy day and I just want to sleep and study for the next 4 days for my finals. THEN I'll be [basically] free!

Make sure to check out the rest of the SMS bakers on the blogroll.
