Chocolate Chip Muffins

My dad and stepmom are visiting from North Carolina, which means my house is filled with sweets. Anywhere my dad is, sweets are involved, as well. The ice cream, cookies and candy that occupy our home are getting a ton of attention from my sweets-loving children (and me). Also in the mix are these delicious Chocolate Chip Muffins that I baked in my sparkling clean oven on Thursday. Does anyone else hate cleaning ovens? Why do I despise this task so much?

Even if you have a set rotation of muffin recipes, don't overlook this one! These Chocolate Chip Muffins are moist (thank you, sour cream) and so yummy. Easy peasy, too!

A spring snowfall is throwing a wrench in our park plans today, so I have to go recalibrate.

Enjoy the recipe and your weekend, friends!
