Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping

I called my mom yesterday, she was mid prep for Sunday dinner.

Me: “What’s for dinner mom?”
Mom: “Oh, just a simple dinner tonight; butternut squash salad w/ warm apple cider vinegar dressing and shaved parmesan, sole meuniere, roasted fennel and asparagus, and profiteroles for dessert.”

Yup, that’s the kind of house I grew up in and boy do I wish I was home in Pennsylvania yesterday to chow down on that menu!

I can’t say I follow in my Mom’s footsteps exactly… but I do love a Sunday in the kitchen. So yesterday I spent most of the day in the kitchen, it was bliss.
