Blueberry YumYum!

There’s something about warm summer days filled with laughter and sunshine and memories of going picking blueberries with my grandmother when I was younger, it’s nostalgic.

It just happened that we had a yummy batch of blueberries growing in our garden that were ripe for the picking, and what better thing to do with ripe blueberries then bake scrumptious muffins?

I owe it to the lovely Mariya from Teacups and Cinnamon for inspiring me and giving me the idea for these muffins. Actually, tempted me and made me drool over her photos would be the real story but shhhh πŸ™‚

Check out her post here and check out her blog, it’s one of my favorites and I love seeing her photos and drooling over her recipes πŸ™‚ oh and it doesn’t hurt that she is drop dead gorgeous!

Anyway back to the recipe, I could barely get the berries away from my sister before she gobbled them all up.
