Glazed Strawberry Muffins

Glazed Strawberry Muffins

Summer is right around the corner and boy am I ready! We are tired of the cold air and are ready for signs of Spring to start popping around our little neighborhood. I figured it was about time to share my families favorite spring time breakfast recipe with you. My family absolutely loves my strawberry lemon muffins with lemon glaze and it’s a great way to sneak a little fruit in the kids diet.  These muffins are absolutely wonderful!
