We go a bit green crazy around here when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around. For dinner we enjoy split pea soup with a crisp green salad. We all dress in green clothes so we don’t get pinched. And for a yummy snack, we all enjoy these delicious pistachio muffins. Okay, so there are no real pistachios in it. But for the kids, it’s a yummy way to green up a snack! Easy and delicious, these muffins hit the spot and the aroma coming from your oven is intoxicating!
