Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins





These strawberry cheesecake muffins are a dessert and breakfast all in one. Nothing is better than that, since you get the best of both worlds. Cheesecake is in the middle of these muffins so that is a nice touch when you take a bite out of the muffin.

Excuse the absence of me from the blog and commenting on other blogs during the past week. I have been preparing to go back to school to get my Masters in English to be able to teach at the community college level. This next year will be a busy one with school, but I know it will be worth it in the  end.
