Winter is almost over! To bring on the spring, I adapted this recipe to include a yummy zing of lemon, tangerine and orange flavors.
YOU WILL NEED:
– 2 c. whole wheat pastry flour
– 1/2 c. granulated sugar
– 1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
– 1 c. chopped strawberries
– 2 eggs
– 1 c. plain yogurt
– 1/4 c. butter, melted
– 1 tsp. vanilla extract
– Fresh grated orange peel from one orange, one lemon, and one tangerine
– Squeezed juice from 1/2 a lemon
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Rub a light coat of oil around the tops of a muffin pan. Line each of the 12 cups with muffin papers.
Mix the first four ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Add the dry ingredients a little at a time, until the dough is smooth.
Spoon the batter into the twelve muffin cups. Bake for 18-25 minutes, until tops are golden brown. (Mine took a bit longer, but it was an unusually humid day for New Mexico.) Remove from the heat and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
I adapted this recipe that I found on The Other Side of 50. Makes one dozen.

I’ve been on the other side of the camera, so to speak, many times. I’ve interviewed doctors, lawyers, graduate students, even a curandero. But this is the first time I’ve been interviewed for MY stuff!
Janelle of Nomad Crafts Etc. put together an interview and some archived photos in her blog. Be sure to check it out for all of my People’s-magazine-worthy dirty little secrets.
If you like what you see, come say hello at my Etsy shop. There will be brand new items posted later this week… stay posted!

Alright, I know, it’s a little early. But what better way to start off the week than with some cheerful color inspiration?
I’d love this gorgeous wallpaper from Anthropologie in my ugly office, maybe with some cozy flannel. Whaddya think, wallpaper: easier than painting?
Can’t wait to be outside, back in the mountains, and with a sunhat like hers. Until then, Happy Monday, and stay warm!

When I lived in Montreal, we got lots of snow and no snow days.
Growing up in Vermont, we got some snow and infrequent snow days.
Now living in New Mexico, we get a quarter of an inch of snow and 3.5 days of mayhem.
Anyone else notice a strange trend here?
