I’m enjoying one of these bad boys while I type this and it …is …yummy!

These muffins are so soft and perfectly sweet. Orange flavor in this spread is a great compliment for the carrot flavor of the muffins. Talk about a great breakfast for yourself and your loved ones! They are also perfect on the go, I give one to hubby as he is leaving for work and take one with me while I take my little guy to school.

I’m glad that my Facebook fans voted for these muffins to be shared next. If you are already a fan of my page, you know that I like to get votes on what I post next from my readers. Yesterday, I asked if they wanted to see a Spring Flower Bed Cake or these Carrot Muffins with  Orange Cream Spread. The votes were pretty close, it seems like everyone wants the Spring to come already and they all want to see some Spring recipes. So I’ve decided to push back the chicken that I had planned for tomorrow and share the muffins today and the cake tomorrow!!

Oh, and you just wait and see what I have planned for Sunday! Wowzee!

I am so anxious to get back to my own kitchen so I can start baking and cooking with all my tools — you know the ones you simply can’t do without. I’m looking forward to your next surprise.
