    I just baked cranberry orange muffins myself this week. They have been a real treat … I used fresh cranberries for the first time and they worked out very well. I loved the burst of tang you get when you take a bite. Your muffins look so festive with their white icing and a bit of holly. I like the idea very much.My first time visit — glad I found your link.Wishing you a beautiful day…Brenda
