Here is a delicious muffin recipe to make with those hand picked raspberries this season (or fresh ones from the store, or frozen work well too). It's almost raspberry picking time (just a few months away), so I am getting excited about having my freezer filled with fresh hand picked raspberries again. I can't wait to get back in the kitchen and create some magical new things, but today I am sharing a muffin recipe, from one of my favorite bloggers. This is by far one of the best raspberry muffins recipes I've made so far.
