Do you ever just get in a food rut? Sometimes it feels like we are having the same things over and over and over again. An endless loop that makes our favorites seem not so exciting when they pop back up on the menu. Blueberry muffins are one of those foods that we love, but after a while you just have to say, "Again?" I did a search on Golden Blossom Honey last week to see if they had anything that looked interesting. I wanted to make some muffins that we've never had before, and this Lemon Raisin Muffin recipe caught my eye. Normally, I'm not an overly huge fan of most things lemon flavored, but my family is, so on the menu it went. Bonus points because I already had all the ingredients on hand, so no extra trips to the grocers. Schwing!
After filling the muffin tins, I'm guilty of eating some of the leftover raw batter out of the bowl. Most of you probably do it to, so don't judge me ;) It's just my way of giving it a little taste test to make sure everything's on the up and up before popping the pan in the oven. If I don't like the batter, I don't bother eating the muffins. I'll let my family be the guinea pigs when they are done. The lemon raisin muffin batter did impress, so I happily indulged in my fair share of the baked muffins fresh out of the oven.
