Bountiful Blueberry Muffins

Bountiful Blueberry Muffins

Nothing is more disappointing than biting into a beautiful blueberry muffin at a bakery or coffee shop and finding out that there aren’t very many blueberries inside.

Fresh Blueberry Waffles

Fresh Blueberry Waffles

Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Bread

In looking for a way to use up the rest of my meyer lemons, it occured to me to make some sort of baked good. A stretch, I know. Actually, my first thought was to make a lemon pudding. This thought took place before I completely lost my appetite for custardy desserts, so it wouldn’t do. I started searching for lemon bread recipes instead. The ... Read More »
