Blueberry Muffins

on

As many of you may know, I love blueberries. In middle school a friend gave me a blueberry-themed birthday gift box full of blueberry flavored, scented, shaped, colored things. I loved it! I’m always seeking more ways to bake with these awesome spheres of flavor and this muffin recipe is awesome. Take these muffins, add scrambled eggs, fruit and juice or coffee and you’ve got yourself the perfect weekend brunch!
