"My Homemade Blueberry Muffins"

First things first, I am in no way a foodie.  A dietitian yes, a foodie no.  The thought of doing Foodie Friday blog posts makes me uncontrollably twitch.  I just don't enjoy cooking that much.  Yes, I do it, but it's more of a means to an end than anything else.  So, brace yourself because you may not see this very often.  I'm about to blog about a recipe.  Yes a recipe, there I said it.

As I mentioned in my last post, I had such a relaxing Memorial Day weekend that I was inspired to pull out the Kitchen Aid and bake something from SCRATCH. (gasp!) Actually, I was just tired of my Mom asking me if I'd used the mixer (that I begged for Christmas before last) lately.  : )

So, seeing that so many delicious fruits are in season in my area, I decided to go with a blueberry muffin.  It sounded simple enough and I figured it would involve the least amount of steps.  I was right.  I quickly Googled a recipe and landed on this one at www.allrecipes.com.  I was called To Die For Blueberry Muffins, and it had over 6,000 four star ratings, so I figured it was a safe bet. Best of all I had everything already in house that I needed with the exception of baking powder.  Not something we non-baking chicks keep on hand. 

It wouldn't be a homemade recipe if you didn't alter something, so of course I did.  Therefore, some of the ingredients you see here, I ended up not needing. I don't really like that sugary topping on muffins so I eliminated that part.  The link above provides it in the recipe if you prefer those extra calories.  : )

So here goes...



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, salt and baking powder (I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon)
  3. Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup.
  4. Mix this with flour mixture. Fold in blueberries.
  5. Fill muffin cups right to the top.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.
Hot out of the oven, these were really delicious. I will definitely be making them again.  See Mom, I am using my mixer.  : )
And is it just me or is that a totally "Pin"able image or what?  Hint, Hint.

Awesome -- love the comment above. Cooking is a means to an end. ;)

We got back from vacay yesterday where we ate out every day (read..not every meal). I went straight to Trader Joes then back to whip up a batch of salsa and some oven baked chicken fajitas. :) Oh I missed standing in that kitchen! ;)
