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.  :-)  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!
