Peach and Lime Muffins

It’s the 2nd day of B being in partial daycare!  I am a nervous wreck mama because I’m used to being with him all of the time.

I have spent my few hours alone working at a little cafe close to his daycare.  I’ve mostly been daydreaming about recipes and flavors that I thought would be good together.

I cook more when I’m nervous, so this week I have been a cooking and recipe creating machine.  

I tried to come up with a new muffin recipe that was fresh and fun, something amazing to end off my muffin month.

Peach and lime.

It came to mind because I was listening to Panic! At the Disco and there is a line that says, ‘Peach and lime daiquiri.’  And I thought that flavor combination sounds so amazing, I have to use it in something.

It’s fresh, abnormal, and best of all tasty.

I whipped up the recipe that I came up with and it was perfect.  The muffin is fluffy, moist, sweet, but a little tart.  I think this might be one of the best muffins that I have come up with so far.
