I love reading blogs!  It is amazing how many great blogs there are.  One of the blogs I follow is Bo's BowlHe not only has delicious comfort food recipes on his blog, but he also posts creative takes on today's trendy foods.   I spotted this recipe on Bo's Bowl and added it to my long list of recipes to try   

I seldom make a recipe the same way twice.  The first time I made this recipe I followed Bo's Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffin recipe.  It was absolutely delicious!   The muffins have a delicate texture with chunks of fresh strawberries through out.

The second time I made it, I decided to change it a little bit.  I swapped out the cream cheese for strawberry cream cheese and made a few other changes.  My family loved the muffins both ways.  I will be making these muffins again and when I do, I am sure I will have a new way I will want to make them. 

On Tuesdays I post cooking tips.  Here is a link for a past post with tips for,
Baking Muffins.

Do you follow recipes exactly the way they are written or do you like to put your own twist on them?

  6. Ficou maravilhosa! Adorei a receita e tenho certeza que devia estar divino. Tenha um excelente fim de semana,. Um abraço, Marta.

  7. They look great!! Good switch with the cream cheese! It depends on the recipe for me. If it's something a little more costly, I stick with the recipe the first time. Other things, I change, either because I failed to really read the recipe carefully or just don't care for an ingredient or two that's in it. Now pass the plate please!!!

  8. These muffins would go great with a cup of coffee. They look amazing.
