mini vacation, Apple Crisp tester muffins

Tomorrow we are off to Florida for a mini vacation! Jared is riding in a bike race in St. Pete on Saturday and I'm tagging along to visit my family who live in Tampa (St. Pete is only a bridge away from Tampa). It'll be cool to hang out with my dad and step mom, doing what we do best: cooking, talking about cooking, watching cooking shows. With all the crazy stuff going on with me trying to get into school and Jared surviving tax week, it will be a well deserved break from real life. Plus I get to see my sister, brother-in-law and new baby nephew Gabriel! I might even get to see my little brother, who is attending U.S.F, which are both mine and Jared's Alma mater and where we met.
As I mentioned before, I am a recipe tester for Happy Herbivore. Since we will be gone this weekend, I had to test the Apple Crisp Muffins before I left . . . plus, we do need a snack for the long car ride tomorrow (which is about 7-8 hours). I seem to be stuck on her muffins, which is a good thing because I love muffins!

Hello! I was looking at some of your past posts and saw you were going to start nursing school! My husband just finished a 2nd degree program in nursing in August and really liked it. His first bachelors is in economics, and eventually he wants to combine the two. Does your area have 2nd degree programs? He took the program at George Mason U in VA and finished in 1 (very intense) year, after completing the prereqs.
Anywho - Good luck to ya!

Apple muffin is a favorite of mine. :) Thank you for this post though! I have been wanting (actually NEEDING!) to do Weight Watchers for awhile now. This is excellent motivation.
