Sweet Clementine

My Fall addiction is mainly due to the colors…well, everything Fall really!  Oranges, yellows, browns.  Then there’s pumpkins, gourds, and did I mention oranges already?  SWEET CLEMENTINE!!!

Sweet Clementine

Yes!  Clementine’s are currently in season and who doesn’t love a sweet clementine?  I love citrus (being a Valley girl and all), but so does my grandson.  Who also happens to love muffins of any sort.  So the other day I decided to try making some clementine muffins and guess what?  AMAZING!!!  Seriously, they exceeded my expectations.

So in the midst of decorating for Thanksgiving…

Sweet Clementine

Improvising with twigs and leaves we gathered from the yard, and an old ceiling tile that was lonely in the garage, I decorated the mantle. (Most of my decor is still in storage due to our move!)

Sweet Clementine

I experimented and baked up a batch to have ready for the little guy’s breakfast.

Pausing between fall decor, the mantle, the table, and back in the kitchen to check on those Sweet Clementine Glazed Muffins, it took most of my morning!  (Where does the time go?) But, they were totally worth it-so I wanted to share my muffin recipe!

Btw that old ceiling tile I found in the garage… it looked like it needed a little attention to detail, so I added a script and I think it completed the look I wanted.
