Granola last week, muffins this week. I guess I am in a breakfast mood lately. I don’t really think of myself as having a favorite meal…I mean, I just like eating in general. Ya know?

It’s the whole experience for me, though…not just about eating. It’s the space, the presentation, the company. I hear that traditionally, Italians take a good long time to eat a meal. I can relate with that. As my husband likes to say, we are people who like to live to eat as opposed to eat to live.

On days where I am in a bit of a rush and can’t linger over a breakfast meal, things like muffins are a go-to. Typically, muffins are more of a snack food for me. Something to eat when I have a cup of tea in the afternoon. Since I like to try to eat as seasonally as possible, these pretty little muffins feature grapefruit. (January in Minnesota, you guys! It’s no joke. We are in the middle of a thaw right now, but supposedly there could be as many as 22 inches of snow coming our way soon.)

I’ve talked before about how much a like grapefruit. This way, for example. Mmm. So good! I decided to pair grapefruit with cardamom again in this recipe and was not disappointed. Especially in the glaze…I mean, why not glaze a muffin? (There’s that line again…just where is the cake territory separated from that of the muffin?)

Also, I would just like to point out that the winter is truly the perfect time to be baking more often. At least in Minnesota. Do any of you have favorite winter baking recipes? Tell me all!
