The morning after getting back from Italy, I woke up around 6 am ready to start the day. Now, to understand how weird this is, think about how I am a 15-year-old teenager who just came back from a huge, exhausting trip. But there is a reason to this madness: a 7-hour time change. In Italy, it is 7 hours ahead of Chicago. To me, 6 am was 1 pm. 

Since I was up, I decided to try a new recipe and make breakfast for my family. But since we had just arrived, we had nothing in our house. No blueberries, no bananas, not even chocolate chips!!!!! It was a tragedy!! Finally, I discovered this batch of strawberries in the back of the refrigerator. So I looked up a recipe and found one for Strawberry Muffins. They were amazing, if I may say so myself, and completely impressed my equally jet-lagged family.

Have a great morning!
