I've never had a pistachio muffin before but looks really tempting...

I just made these pistachio muffins and I unfortunately have to say the color green you show had to have food color to make it so green, and they are very dry...1/2 cup milk seemed to little??? I followed your recipe and they are nothing like you have posted. Maybe your measurements are off...I am not sure. Not bakery style...sorry
