So I need to confess something: I kind of despise winter. The first snowfall of the year is always quite pretty, and it can be fun to snuggle up in your favorite sweater with a cup of hot cocoa. Those warm, cozy feelings, however, last about two weeks before I’m fed up with the bitter cold, scraping off my car, and being forced to stay indoors.
That’s why I’m so pleased that spring decided to pop in a little earlier than usual. I’ve been waiting for weeks to break out my fun summer outfits and spend all day outside — I bet you have too! Spring weather means spending more time taking walks and visiting friends which means less time in the kitchen. We don’t want you to miss out on these lovely spring days which is why we’ve got the secret to tasty food on-the-go: muffins. Ladies and gents, I present to you a new craze:
March Muffin Madness!
Baking muffins is your answer to fresh food when you’re on the move. Whip up a batch, and you’ve got a snack or breakfast option that will last for days. Throw a couple into a plastic bag, and bring them with you to munch on when your stomach starts to rumble as you spend a day downtown with your friends.
Easy muffin recipes are so much fun to share with all of the people you love. You could even have your own March Muffin Madness party! One of the biggest setbacks to baking muffins is how you end up with a few dozen delicious bites, but they’re all the same flavor. What if, instead, you turned your baking into a social event and hosted a muffin cook-off? If a group of your friends all decided to make a batch of muffin, then you could exchange your best recipes and wind up with a variety of flavors that are sure to keep you reaching for more, day in and day out.
The Mr. Food team is here to help you get started with some of our favorite muffin recipes for the busy bee on-the-go. I’m sure any of these would be perfect alongside your morning cup of coffee. What’s your favorite muffin flavor? Let us know in the comments below!
