Blueberry muffins

Growing up, blueberries were not commonly found in our home. Maybe it was because my mom thought they were poisonous (wild berries grew around the area, and one of our neighbor’s cats ate them and died) or didn’t know of the numerous health benefits. Nevertheless, I didn’t get my first package of blueberries until a couple years ago when I was experimenting with new foods (add avocado to that list too…crazy, huh?!). I think blueberry anything is delicious–I add them to pancakes, cereal, and smoothies. I decided to try my hand at blueberry muffins, which were a rousing success. I tried to stop at one muffin, but just couldn’t.
