little Indiana would never have called herself a fan of gingerbread, but this gingerbread muffin recipe not only smells good–it tastes like the holidays!

This is yummy. While I had never had gingerbread muffins before, after a recent stay at a comfortable Indiana bed and breakfast where they served Gingerbread Muffins with breakfast, I couldn’t wait to try my hand at them at home.

After shuffling through a few of them on, I found this one and it is a keeper. It travels well, too–we had to get ginger into Kid #2 somehow!

The Carnegie Library in Attica, Indiana is so grand--and I didn't even get to go inside! The library had closed so I could only admire the exterior.
