Happy Easter! What are your plans for today? Going to a relative's? Cooking up an entire meal by yourself? Regardless of what you're doing, you're going to need some morning fuel to get you through the day. But since it's a special day, you should have a special breakfast (or brunch). None of that cereal or toast crap -- treat yourself right. Treat yourself -- and your family -- to Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins. There isn't a quicker, easier Easter treat in the book. And it's special, to boot!
