So when works sucks and you need to vent your frustrations...what do you do? Make muffins! I'm just about at the end of the oranges from my orange tree in the back yard, but yet another good use for them!!! These muffins are really good. I cut out the recipe years ago from the Cooking Light magazine and have been making them ever since. They are super moist, with that ooh so nice orange taste in the background and oooh yeah quick to whip up!
