Blueberry Muffins
Allen and I went to Northern California to be with his parents for two weeks and while there, I baked blueberry muffins, s'more chocolate chip cookies, hedgehog sugar cookies with chocolate royal icing, and chocolate cake for my birthday. I also made my father-in-law his favorite Lemon Meringue Pie and made Veggie Pasta Salad when Aunt Jeanne and doggie Buddy visited. This muffin recipe is from Ina Garten (see link below). The muffins have a fluffy cake-like texture, are moist and have blueberries in every bite. These blueberry muffins are best served warm with coffee, tea or a cold glass of milk. See recipe below.

Yield: About 18 muffins depending on size (I made 6 large and 12 standard muffins)
