Strawberry Lime Muffins 5

Strawberry Lime Muffins

Serves: 5

Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week! I don’t know about you, but I am very happy it is Friday! For some reason this week has felt extra long! Maybe because I am excited for the upcoming holiday next week? Hopefully some of you are starting a long holiday vacation today too! The fourth of July always signifies the official start of summer for me, so I thought it would be a great day to share this recipe! Strawberries and limes are two wonderful summer flavors, but put them together and they are even better! I hope you enjoy this recipe and have an amazing weekend! :)
