Cherry Vanilla Muffins

Every Friday afternoon during the summer, I host a playgroup at our house for my sons and all of their Montessori classmates (they're in the same class). It's really not as crazy as it sounds. Not every child attends every playgroup, and I encourage the parents to stay and attend, too, so there is lots of supervision. Today I decided to make some muffins for the playgroup's afternoon snack. I didn't have any fresh fruit but I had plenty of frozen fruit. So I selected some lovely cherries from our freezer.
