Lemon-Strawberry Ginger Muffins

Hope everyone is having an amazing Sunday!  I feel like summer is truly among us.  Here in central Texas the heat is getting to be too much, and any opportunity to stay indoors is well received.  Jason and I have never been indoor-type folks, though.  We’ve decided to break out our little grill tonight.  I’ve got some huge ribeyes marinating and we’re going to sit outside and sip our kombuchas while we enjoy each other’s company…and sweat, I guess.

I have been toying with some recipes for the Fourth of July — mostly dessert type ones, of course.  With the overwhelming heat I am definitely going to lean toward some sort of fresh fruit treat.  Still in the works.  For now, I had some strawberries in the fridge gettin’ a bit too ripe.  Perfect opportunity for some practice!  These are not sweet — other than the natural sweetness from the fresh strawberries.  I decided to incorporate some lemon and ginger…just for fun.  Great decision.  Flavors are all great together.  These would make a great addition to any picnic or bbq this summer because they’re supper quick to make and so fresh and light.

    I love this recipe, thank you. I think this will be the perfect summer treat. I must admit I have a sweet tooth but I think if I just pick out the sweetest strawberries, I will love this recipe even more.
