I work part-time for five months of the year, and to start the day I love muffins and coffee as soon as I get up. These are my creation. Adjust the amount of cranberries and raisins to suit your tastes. Someone might like a streusel topping. I like "less-sweet" muffins, so I left them plain on top.
