Strawberry Muffins with Fresh Lemon and Rosemary: Fragrance and fresh, muffin for the lovely morning!

I just bought some pots of the herb (well, I have to inform you that they won't last long, I don't have green thumb >*<), and some of them is the rosemary.

Well this rosemary is very beautiful, you can see that! So, I think about the recipe that I can use them. And then I saw the recipe from the book

This muffin is the combination of the strawberry, rosemary and the lemon, well, you can see that it's quite interesting. Like always, I have adjust the recipe to my taste ^ ^, I add a lot of the strawberry, as I want to make sure that anyone who eat this muffin will know that there are strawberry muffin, haha!

And for the top of the muffin, the original recipe calls for the sugar to sprinkle over, but (I always have the reason, ^ ^) I find that the lemon taste is to little, so a lemon glaze will add the more lemon taste, the sense and a little tanginess to the muffin.

The muffin turn to be great! The fragrance of the strawberry, lemon and rosemary get along very well (my sister, who has a lot problem with any smell haha), love the muffin too.
So, I hope that you will like it, the muffin with a lovely fragrance, and refreshing taste, it will brighten up your day!.

I'm trying to imagine the taste of the muffin, the sourish sweet strawberry taste, the fragrant lemon & rosemary, must be yummy ! I've tried a raspberry cheesecake flavoured with rosemary in Singapore & I liked it, will try it out when I get hold of fresh rosemary leaves.
