Blueberry Muffins!

Its been so long, I know. I've been having some what of a writers block. I have so many drafts saved that I haven't posted. I haven't liked the way they have sounded. What can I say? I'm a perfectionist. One of my favorite favorite favorite bloggers in the whole wide world The Pioneer Woman recently posted this. It well, inspired me. So here goes nothing...(or something, depending on how you look at it).

I've never been much of a blueberry person, but during my vacation to Louisiana, this summer I realized how delicious they are! Try these muffins and try them now. I'm telling you, i've made these for several people and it has drastically changed their view on the blueberry.

Start with... well what else? Blueberries. See like these.

Freshly picked from a beautiful bush on a summer day, from a carton plucked from your local market on a rainy day, or if your the "grab and go" type of gal, a frosty package from the frozen food freezer.

Or these!!


Note: If you for some crazy reason you are afraid of blueberries, you can use raspberries, strawberries, or a lovely berry medley.

Ok, So now that you have that covered let's get down to business.

Grab yourself some flour, sugar, an egg, milk, oil, and some good old vanilla. Mix those all up.

Use a mixer or use a whisk, it doesn't much matter. Only if you opt out of both and use your finger don't invite me over for any, I'll kindly decline.

Anywho, mix those all up and then add your berries.
Pick a pretty pattern cupcake liner, pop them into a pan, fill 'em up and then your set.

Ok so these are just plain liners, i'm not perfect ok.

You wanna bake these until golden brown or about 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees.


Look how gorgeous! 373

I can't stand it. BEAUTIFUL!


These are super easy. Believe me, If my dog had thumbs, and if he didn't drool everywhere, he could do it! Like I said too, they are so versatile, use any berry or combination of berries you want. You know whats also great? Berries freeze so well! Buy them when they are on sale and pop 'em in the freezer!! So most of these ingredients you can have on hand even if you haven't been food shopping in 3 months. (poor soul, I live to go food shopping. Well not really but it is one of the highlights of my week!!)
