Orange and Parsnip Muffins

Orange and Parsnip MuffinsA gluten free friend of mine recently had a beautiful baby boy and I was going to visit them in the hospital. I thought muffins would be the perfect treat for her. I also had a parsnip sitting in my fridge that needed to get used. I don't know what it is about parsnips ... I love their flavor, so I buy them sporadically but never seem to want to use them when they are in the fridge. I found a recipe in a cookbook that I have called Carrot Bread with Orange Frosting.

The recipe sounded pretty decent and I knew I could substitute the carrot with parsnip ... and the regular flour with gluten free flour ... and I wanted a banana in there ... and I didn't want frosting so I did a glaze. When I was done, the recipe was totally different and I was getting a bit nervous that they would even turn out. God was on my side, because they turned out great. However, I ran into one little problem. I left them at home so my friend didn't even get to try them!
