Blueberry addiction

Blueberry Muffin?

  I was lucky enough to buy a pint of blueberries for only $1.50 the other day.  I knew if I didn’t so something with them quickly I would just sit and eat the whole pint.  Yeah.  I do things like that.  Once I start on them, I don’t want to stop.  My son Justin seems to take after me when it comes to blueberries. (inside joke ;o)  he he).  Lately they have been curing my sweet tooth.  Well, a little bit anyway.. 

One of my “things” I like to do when recipe hunting is go to allrecipes.com and peruse the photos to vote on for that day.  I click on each photo and if I like what I see I go to the recipe.  If it is a great photo I always vote.  You can do that….vote on several photos.  That is how I found the To Die for Blueberry Muffin Recipe.  I tweaked it just a wee bit by adding almond extract and omitted the crumb topping.  Don’t shoot me yet!.  I love crumb topping but I just wasn’t in the mood for it that day.  Instead I made an almond flavored drizzle for the top.  Not a bad decision in my opinion! They turned out beautifully – in looks and taste!  I’m definitely keeping this one around.

    You know I'm a muffin freak and this looks like a great recipe to try. I just bought some blueberries yesterday. Do I make the tart I was planning on making, or try these muffins instead….hmmmm

    I can so relate to this post. I've had a pint of blueberries in the fridge calling my name for eons (since yesterday, that is) and finally blended them with yogurt tonight for a huge dinner smoothie, all to myself. Now I have a perfect excuse to go get more tomorrow. Love your recipe!

    These look great! Blueberries are abundant in my kitchen these days; been putting them on every thing. I also have a go-to blueberry muffin recipe but yours I have to try! They look perfect in your photos!
