Cranberry Orange Muffins

At the rate my baking extravaganza has been going, I am staying (far..far) away from a scale since November (wonder why?!?). This time of the year is the time for indulgence and special treats. It is necessary to pamper and rejuvenate both body and soul to get yourself in gear for another year so “let it be” (with portion control in mind of course). I enjoy filling my home with sweet aroma of different desserts and home cooked meals while glancing at our Christmas decorations, it is simply delightful and pure happiness.

This past weekend, I made Cranberry Orange Muffins (adept from Cranberry Orange Loaf). A Cranberry Orange Muffin from Nestle Tollhouse used to be my favorite until they closed down a store by my house. They made wholesome muffins filled with tangy cranberries and yummy pecans and a hint of orange which I was dying for more until I found this recipe. It was pretty close, not as heavy but enough to fulfill my craving. Find recipe {here}

    I love how the tartness of cranberries bring a refreshing punch to sweet food like muffins.

My mom and I are very into cute Christmas baking cups. Too bad we don;t have baking cups as cute as the ones you have ;) The pictures are so pretty as always, you're a great photographer and baker as well! :)
