Muffin Monday: Sour Cream Walnut Cinnamon Muffins

*** Enjoy these easy to make brown sugar streusel-topped muffins with your coffee day or night!





From Denny: As a blogger I've started up this Muffin Monday recipe segment to help local economies all across the nation. How? By promoting the small businesses of bed and breakfast inns in America and Canada. Think about it. The next time you travel for business or pleasure be sure to book a bed and breakfast instead of a Big Business hotel chain. The prices are comparable and sometimes less. No one is paying me to write these posts - not do I own any interest in a "b and b" but hey, if you want to step up and donate feel free! :)

Seriously though, I just thought what a great idea if I could promote small businesses over Big Business. With small businesses the jobs stay here in our country instead of getting shipped overseas for cheaper labor costs and bigger profit. Let's support our local small businesses. By doing so we are supporting the 80 percent that drives our economy. Did you realize that most of the people in America work for small business? Big Business has driven so many smaller businesses out of business like small pharmacies, grocery and hardware stores.

It's been an enjoyable romp through the fields of the internet to locate these muffin recipes. Just when I found one bed and breakfast to be an interesting surprise then another one is discovered to be just as unique. Today's bed and breakfast inn promotes a special package rarely found at a hotel: a murder mystery package deal where you can partake in a weekend of amateur sleuthing fun. How unique is that?





From the website: We are an old-fashioned Bed & Breakfast promoting hospitality as our specialty. Located on a barrier island 8 miles long and approximately 1 mile wide where the sea air and ocean sounds are prevalent.

Designated by the Historic Commission as an Ocean City seashore cottage, our B&B has five Victorian rooms with the modern convenience of queen size beds, one with twin beds, and air conditioners in all guest rooms. Each bed chamber is uniquely decorated and named for a special butterfly. Quilts adorn the bedsteads while lace curtain sway with the breeze at the windows. The queen size beds offer special pampering but the twin beds offer comfort for friends who travel together. Our guests enjoy a continental breakfast buffet as one highlight of their stay.

The accommodations include a large front porch protected by striped awnings where our guests may relax after a full day... on the beach, walking our 2 1/2 mile boardwalk, investigating our quaint Asbury Avenue stores, or researching antiques along the Route 9 corridor to Cape May. Ocean City is located at the top of Cape May County where the Olympics of Birding occur each spring.
