Cinnamon Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins

Oh man, this is an exciting week for me! On Thursday, I am traveling to Austin to attend the Blogher Food Conference. I signed up in December, so I have been anxiously awaiting this week for quite some time. I am really looking forward to meeting the bloggers that I follow and have come to know through the past few months. I am trying to plan a visit to some local bakeries and eateries in the area. This is one of my favorite things to do when I visit a new city. If you have any recommendations, please send them my way! I plan to not eat at all this week so I can have some storage space for the extra calories, haha.

As an adult, I much prefer to buy my blueberries at the grocery store. Sorry mom and dad. Continue reading

Mother’s day is coming up this weekend, as if you didn’t already know that! My mother lives on the other side of the country, but I am so excited because I get to see her the following weekend! Mother’s day is awesome because it’s one of the few days a year that it is acceptable to eat breakfast in bed. I mean, I would eat breakfast in bed all the time if I could. We always got up early to make breakfast for my mom and made her stay in the bedroom until we were finished. So why not try making your mom some muffins this weekend?

We are in the midst of strawberry season here, and I LOVE strawberries! I have been looking for every excuse to bake with them, how else am I going to get rid of the five containers I bought? I looked through dozen of strawberry muffin recipes to figure out what I wanted to do and I am so pleased with the results. I had a few requirements for this recipe. I wanted something with yogurt or sour cream, buttermilk and I wanted to try out my Zulka Pure Cane Sugar. Continue reading
