Strawberry Muffin

January 07, 2016 Motions and Emotions 14 Comments

After long vacation, life is slowly coming back on track!! Still lot more to do... I wonder whether it happens only with me or others too?? Sometimes I feel, I am taking too much time to organize things! Whole day I run behind 'n' number of things and end of the day I realize I have completed only 30% of the total task. :( . Is it because I look for perfection in every work?  I think this quote says the truth:

                                           “If you look for perfection, you'll never be content.”  
                                                                                                                                 ( Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina)

Today I am sharing a fruit muffin recipe. Strawberry is in the season now, so I thought of preparing strawberry muffin which can be served at your breakfast table. Well, at my home I am the only strawberry lover so this muffin is dedicated to me :).


 Our daughter loves the artificial strawberry flavour which we get in the market especially strawberry pastry, strawberry jelly etc. The reason behind this the beautiful pink color which is not there in strawberry muffin as I have used chopped fresh strawberry dice in the muffin. She is fascinated about pink color and each and every thing she wants pink :(. I won't be surprised if someday she ask "Mamma why your face is not pink color?" Grrr!!

This strawberry muffin could be a great surprise for your loved ones on coming Valentine's Day!

  11. I really wonder why girls like pink so much ? Even my little one likes pink . Strawberries are so well used up in this recipe. Yummy treat for kids and some guilt day pleasures for adults too!
