Cranberry-Orange Muffins

It's been a crazy week.  I've recently spent more time in a hospital than I ever have previously, and I totally have a new-found respective for nurses.  Doctors flit in and out, while nurses seem to do all of the work...no offense to my brother the doctor :)  My grandpa should be released tomorrow, and then he and my step-grandma will spend a few days with us, while he recovers from this throat surgery.

When I had breakfast with my step-grandma yesterday she really wanted a muffin, but not the prepackaged type available at the hotel, so I decided to make muffins tonight.  The last time I made this recipe I was attempting to make scones, but the batter was more muffin-like and I had a really hard time making scones.  Here's the kicker - the batter today was perfect for scones and I have no idea why it turned out differently.  I went ahead with muffins, since the pans were out and lined.

I would definitely make these again as muffins.  Using a large Oxo scoop, I got fairly small muffins, just barely higher than the top of the muffin tin, and they cooked in 13 minutes.  The only change I made to the allrecipes.com recipe was to use half wheat, half white flour.  Now I need to hit publish on this post, because it's almost 8pm and I'm looking forward to watching Michael Scott's last episode of The Office!
