White Chocolate Cranberry Muffins, you haven't had a sweet muffin until you try these muffins that combine white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. A must try simple recipe!
Happy New Year!
Welcome to 2018!
I still cannot believe that today is the first day of another year. I am starting my day with one…okay, maybe two…White Chocolate Cranberry Muffins and a large cup of coffee because tomorrow I plan on going hard with my workout and diet. I will also be having dinner with my family later today and will definitely not miss out on eating the traditional black-eyed peas and greens that you must have on the first day of each new year to bring you good luck.
Honestly, I am not sure if this works, but I prefer not to be the one that ruins the tradition by skipping out on this. Plus I rebel on enough things that my family lets me get away with AND I will not be the one to miss my mama’s black-eyed peas, greens, and cornbread. However let me tell you that it does not have to be day one of a new year for me to enjoy these, so luck or no luck…just let me know when and where to fix my plate.
