I got crazy last night. I threw on my comfiest sweats, poured m'self a glass of wine or three, and whipped up some Apple Cranberry Muffins for this morning. Man, was it worth it! These things are divine -- warm or cool; with or without butter. And I've gotta say -- my house still smells all cozy and fall-like.
If you're planning on making it a lazy Sunday today, and you've got a hankering for something delicious, I highly recommend you make yourself a batch of these super-yummy muffins. They're some of the best I've had in a while. Enjoy!
