If you’ve been around the Spice Kitchen + Bar blog for a long, you’ve likely noticed that I love muffins. My strawberry muffins recipe remains one of my classic favorites although these gingerbread muffins are better suited for the upcoming winter months. Nothing is more satisfying on a snowy winter day than a cup of coffee in hand and a spiced treat to accompany it.
