Glazed Strawberry-Peach Muffins

 Strawberry-peach muffins can’t help but make you think summer….and when you add a sweet peach drizzle, you can’t help but think yummmmmm!

Do you ever feel like you’re living in the movie Groundhog’s Day? Where the same things happen day, after day, after day? Every morning here at our Lemon Tree Dwelling is a little like that….first Nora wakes up waaaaay too early (this morning was 5:00), then Ellia comes in our bedroom and asks if she can go get the ipad, then Greta climbs into our bed and asks for a new pony (she is obsessed with high ponytails and asks us to re-do them about 18 times a day)….and then, when we can’t push the time any longer, and we are running the risk of being late for school, we all head downstairs for breakfast. And Groundhog’s Day continues.

Because every morning, without fail, my kids tell me they’re hungry. And every morning, without fail, I tell them I know they’re hungry and ask them what they’d like. I run through the list of options, and, without fail, they tell me none of them sound good….and we go back to square one. I’m not kidding you – it is a ridiculous way to start our day.  BUT. If I give them the option of something delicious and different and home-made…..well, then Groundhog’s Day disappears and it’s like Christmas around here! So yeah…. I’ve been making a lot of muffins lately.

I know muffin recipes are a dime a dozen, but I wanted to share these ones with you because they’re just moist enough, just sweet enough, just delicious enough that I thought you might enjoy them as much as we did. The strawberry-peach combo is just right for the warm weather that’s just around the corner….and the sour cream in the batter gives them a richness that is oh so satisfying. And, come to think of it, these muffins would be the perfect addition to a Mother’s Day brunch….(time to start thinking about that already!)

Between this week’s muffins and last week’s smoothies, I’m hoping to bring our Groundhog’s Day to a quick close. Speaking of groundhogs….Punxatawney Phil, you were soooooooo wrong this year. Don’t think we didn’t notice….    :)

    Yes, my life sometimes feels like ground hog day–some days it’s a ‘what about bob’ day too!
    We woke to snow this morning, is spring really close? I wore capris today (my own little revolt).
    These little gems look perfect, and maybe I’ll make the gingerbread scones today, while it’s still cold. I love scones and ginger!

    These look divine, Cathy! Glad they took the Groundhog-ness away! We go through the, “I’m hungry” … “What would you like?” … “What is there?” …and I list the usual (that they know full well in advance! lol) I totally get how adding something like these scrumptious muffins could shatter that repetition in a millisecond 😉 Such a delicious flavor combo! Pinned & look forward to trying sometime!! Thanks for sharing! I always so enjoy your posts! :*)

    These look wonderful! They would certainly make my morning routine a little brighter. Thankfully my boys have been sleeping a little later since baseball started. Phew! I was right there with you. My kids have always been early risers. I would love if you would share these on Thursday @ Great Idea Thursday http://ahandfulofeverything.blogspot.com. Krista
