52 Treats: V.4

This week has been an absolute whirlwind.  I needed a little bit of super-simple baking for our weekly baking venture and this recipe (if you can call it that) was just what the doctor ordered. 
Johnny and the girls were playing out back on this unseasonably warm day, so I was alone in the kitchen this week.  It was a nice bit of quiet time.
I whipped up the corn muffin recipe according to the box and then added (a lot of) orange zest and a couple handfuls of cranberries.  As you can see, they were thoroughly enjoyed.  :) 


  1. Ooh, it sounds so delicious! And Poe's face!! <3 <3 <3
