My family has always had a large garden and our summers growing up were usually spent planting, watering, weeding, harvesting and preparing the produce grown in it. Most summer mornings, we would wake up to find my mom outside watering the garden, wedding her flower beds, or picking fresh fruits and vegetables. The first place that my dad usually goes after work is outside to check on the progress of things he's planted. All of the hard work my parents (and sometimes us kids) put into the yard and garden pays off every year. Not only do my parents have a beautiful yard full of flowers and lots of green, but we get to enjoy the fruits of our labor and share them with our friends and neighbors too.
One of my mom's favorite summer foods would have to be raspberries. We eat them fresh, make jam with them and put them in a lot of different recipes. These muffins, or really any muffin she makes, usually disappear into our bellies before they even have the chance to cool off. Of all the muffins she makes, these are probably my favorite.
So yummy!!! These muffins freeze perfectly and I will probably be eating them for breakfast all fall/winter while I reminisce about summer mornings spent picking raspberries and summer nights eating these muffins with cheese and fresh veggies for dinner.
What is your favorite thing to make with fresh raspberries in the summer?
