Zucchini and Cranberry Muffins

Cry berry muffins - still in shock horror innocent babies and fabulous educators

Why Why Trader Joes do you print baking soda in the same colors as baking powder.  I now write on the lids because too many times I have mixed up the two.

I bring my eggs to room temperature by putting them in warm water.
