I have been really confused about what day of the week it is�coming back from a vacation mid-week is a bit discombobulating.
But I�m 99.9% sure that today is Friday, so that�s exciting. I�m hoping to post more in-depth about our vacation this weekend, so if you�re interested in what to do in Vermont during the winter time, you won�t want to miss it! Actually, I found the Green Mountain State to be full of stark, natural beauty and interesting attractions (and we now have so much maple syrup we could probably bathe in it).
But I�ll talk about that later (Vermont…not bathing in liquid tree sugar).
Today I�ve got some muffins for ya. I sometimes get really focused on hearty, warm winter flavors and I tend to forget about all the bright citrus and tropical fruits that pop up this time of year. The fact that I�m not the biggest citrus fan in the world might coincide with why I tend to gloss over those bright fruits, but this year I discovered mangoes.
Which aren’t technically a citrus fruit, but close enough. I will devour any sort of dried mango that�s put in front of me, and now I’m enjoying cooking and baking with the source. (Maybe I’ll finally get a dehydrator and dry my own someday!) I have grown to love this juicy, vibrant fruit, so here it is baked into a fluffy mango-tastic muffin with an added bonus of a homemade white chocolate crunch.
It�s like sunshine in muffin form�don’t let it blind your taste buds!
