Strawberry Coconut Muffins

Strawberry Coconut Muffins with Jam

Today marks a new day in my food blogging life…

Saturday’s agenda:

1. Sleep in… until 8:00am.  Although some people would not consider this sleeping in, for me, it is a huge accomplishment!

2. Coffee.  I can barely function without my morning cup of joe.

3. Trip to Costco (yes, on a Saturday!) to purchase a new camera :)   I have upgraded from my old Canon Powershot SX20IS to a Canon EOS 60D.  Go big or go home.

4. Bake Strawberry Coconut Muffins.

5. Sign up for a photography class as soon as possible, as I have no idea how to use said camera! I had to call for back up to figure out how to take a picture. Currently, the camera is set to auto and until I take a class I am not sure I will venture off of this function.

I love coconut and strawberries together. The great thing about this recipe is that it uses coconut two ways - in the muffins and sprinkled on top.
