Cran-Apple Streusel Breakfast Muffins

Cranapple Streusel Muffins-7I think I may have a problem! An addiction of sorts.

Cranapple Streusel Muffins

Let me start by saying I am not one of those people who collects endless amounts of collectables, and clothes and such. I’m quite the opposite really. I hate clutter! I’m the person that regularly donates a bag of clothes every season. My Motto is, if I haven’t used it in 1 year, toss it.

Mr. PBandO thinks I’m a clothes hoarder.  Last time I was shopping and found the most perfect sweater ever, he mumbled something about me having to many sweaters.  I didn’t understand that remark.  How does someone have to many sweaters, that’s like having to many shoes… IMPOSSIBLE.

Back to my problem… my magazine collection. I have somehow managed to let my collection grow to around 200 food magazines. I don’t know what it is about a food magazine, I’ll be standing in the grocery line and I’ll spot a cover with a delicious new recipe that claims to the best ever.  That might actually be my Achilles heel, the title “the best ever” .

I think I’m afraid to throw out one of these magazines. I mean there might be the best ever pumpkin pie recipe, or the best ever brownie recipe.

I think I found this recipe in one of those recipe card inserts, you know the ones that fall out as you flip through the magazine.   Thank god I did, cause this is really the best ever cran-apple streusel muffin recipe ever.     Goes perfect with your morning cup of tea!

  1. Ahh…hahaha!!

    First…I’m so sorry that I haven’t been around, Tracy… I totally suck. Too much junk going on.

    I love these muffins…they sound absolutely wonderful. I’m so happy you’ve somehow hoarded all of those magazines!! My kids bought me a Nook about two years ago for Mother’s Day…and my magazine problem was solved!! All of my magazines are on that Nook…and any recipes that I loved, I’ve made a document that has the name of the recipe, and which magazine and issue that it’s in…and just a note of how much I loved the recipe, how soon I want to make it, and if it is for a certain time of year. ❤
