Spring has sprung in California! That means all sorts of colorful, yummy vegetables and fruits are showing up at the farmer's market. We love using fresh berries in our breakfast foods. I've been tinkering with this recipe for a while. It's great for breakfast but also an option for snacks. This makes a large batch so you can freeze half for another time. We do the regular-sized muffins for the adults and the mini muffins for the kids.
