I don't have anything crafty to share with you today. I do have a yummy muffin recipe you're going to love! It is SUPER easy to whip up and tastes so good. Our children inhale these muffins every time I make them. I don't know who created this recipe because it is not on my copy so whoever you are... THANK YOU!!!
These are some notes of mine: I usually don't use 1/3 cup of oil, maybe 1/4 c. will do since I don't measure. I only add a pinch of salt if I add the salt, sometimes I just don't bother with salt. The direction doesn't have any baking time. I usually bake the muffins for about 15-16 minutes and check, usually it's done by then, if not go for 18 minutes at the most. We don't want dry muffins:)
You can freeze the leftover streusel if you'd like, it keeps very well.

Here's the recipe:
These are the muffins I baked up. Some visual for you.
Streusel Topped Muffins

1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. milk
1/3 c. vegetable oil

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin tin or line with baking cups.
2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; mix well. In a small bowl, combine milk, oil and egg, blend well. Add to dry ingredients. Stir until dry ingredients are moistened (batter will be lumpy).
3. Fill cups 2/3 full. Top with streusel topping - see recipe below.
