Chocolate Chip Muffins

Recently, we spent a delightful weekend in Charleston, SC.  Charleston is a great food town with lots of various eateries to try.  One of our friends recommended the Fat Hen on St. John’s Island for brunch.  After a fun evening celebrating at a wedding and a late Sunday morning start, the idea of coffee and brunch was just what we needed.  When we arrived at the Fat Hen, we were asked if we would like to start with their bakery basket.  Well, of course, we were definitely interested.  The bakery item of the day was chocolate chip muffins.  What a wonderful way to start brunch with a great cup of coffee.  I decided it was time to bake some chocolate chip muffins.  Time to brew some coffee!
