Cranberry Orange Muffins

Years ago, I tried a box mix for cranberry orange muffins.  They were super good and very easy to make, win-win.  Well, I have this problem… I think I can make things as good or better myself.  It’s really kinda a hassle.  I’m not too into box baked good mixes, so I knew I had to give it a try myself.  I finally came up with these and I think they are a great homemade equivalent to the box variety I tried.
