This week, we have a guest spot for my oft-mentioned friend Ginny — she did so much of the work for these, it’s only fair she should get to gush about them. ¬†ūüôā ¬†Here she is!

Due to an odd, a-seasonal abundance of strawberries in my local grocery stores, I ended up with a box of extremely ripe berries that had to be used¬†now. So, since I had rhubarb in my¬†freezer from this¬†past fall (and a husband who¬†loves strawberry-rhubarb pie) on hand, I decided to make a pie to celebrate Easter with. It’s a tasty treat, and with just the two of us a whole feast seemed excessive. So, here you go :-).

Making these cookies with my family is one of my earliest memories. ¬†We’d all sit around the table and churn out massive quantities of dough factory-style during Advent, throwing in Dutch ovens to serve as additional mixing bowls. ¬†We’d make cookies with no chip, with chocolate chips, with mint chocolate chips, with white chocolate chips, with peanut butter and chocolate chips, with cinnamon chips (once, and I don’t recommend it — yuck).

Most of us are familiar with soft pretzels as a fast-food treat item, the kind of thing you buy at the fair or while you’re walking around a tourist town. Now, many of those pretzels are actually pretty good (though usually drenched in things that are not so good for you!), though the flash-frozen and reheated ones can be rather dry. Here’s a homemade recipe for the same treat, and it’s¬†surprisingly¬†simple!

So Jocelyn may have been hoping her post on¬†kolaches would prompt me to do the same, but nope, it’s hermuffins instead. ¬†I took one look at that post and thought, “Wow, has it really been so long since I made muffins? ¬†I want some!” ¬†Blueberry muffins were one of my first posts, but I hadn’t really done anything with muffins since then. ¬†I’d always intended to post more varieties of muffin, though, so here you go!
