Pear and caramel muffins

Pear and caramel muffins 1

Why is it that weekends go by so fast? I’m really bummed by this fact this morning. All I wanted was one more morning where I could sleep in, lounge around the house while sipping a coffee and enjoy these delicious pear and caramel muffins, and then around ten decide if I’m staying in my PJ’s all day or go for a stroll on the beach. Is that too much to ask? I think not. But since it’s Monday I only have these muffins as a distant memory of the past weekend. Hope you enjoy them.

    1. With the sun rising later and later each morning with autumn in full swing over here, I need one every morning. Wish we could sleep and eat and sleep and eat forever and ever! 😛
