New things coming to Darlybird and a fetchin' awes recipe to boot

Hi friends! I've been a bit out of the loop lately; i.e., I'm pregnant and have been feeling sick-o. So things on Darlybird.com haven't been updated as quickly and well as I would like, and I have been neglecting darlyblog to the enth degree.

Just thought I'd let you know that I just went to the San Francisco International Gift Fair and found some amazing things! Get ready for lots of cute to be coming your way via Darlybird. And, I've got a little sale up my sleeve for the 1st anniversary of Darlybird. I'll let you know when it's closer to the actual date, August 15th. For now, enjoy this fab recipe:

Raspberry Streusel Muffins


BATTER:

.25 c packed brown sug
2 tsp baking pwdr
.25 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

1.25 c fresh raspberries (I substituted frozen in a pinch, but added some fresh blueberries)
1 tsp lemon zest


STREUSEL TOPPING:
.5 c chopped pecans
.5 c packed brown sug
.25 c flour
