I was completely ready for the cool weather and so excited it was finally here. I even finally had the windows open the other day. Then a warm streak hit. Why?! Mother Nature seriously needs to figure things out. At least there’s no humidity. But, I’ll be super thrilled when the cooler crisp weather is back to stay! The only downfall to that is it means the trees will be bare soon and Winter isn’t too far off. I’ll try to keep that as far back in my mind as possible for now.

Things don’t normally excite me at the grocery store. I mean… it is the grocery store after all. But this was completely grounds for having a mini happy dance…

My local store has cortland apples!! Eek!

Normally they don’t show up until later in the month, so I was extremely happy to find them already. They’re my absolute faaaavorite variety! They’re a lot like McIntosh, only so much better. They have just the right blend of sweet and tart flavor, with crisp flesh, making them perfect for just about everything… from pies to general baking, canning and of course eating as is!

I’m a creature of habit. Have apples… will make (so much, but definitely) muffins.

I’ve always loved muffins. It’s like having a cupcake for breakfast but without the frosting. Moist, flavorful, carby goodness that I can’t get enough of!

Irresistible moist apple muffins with cinnamon oatmeal crumb topping and a sweet vanilla glaze! Grab your favorite apples and head to the kitchen. You need to whip up a batch of these apple crumb muffins!
