My mother-in-law was visiting with us last week. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see her often as her current job has her based in California. So, when she comes to visit…it’s always a real treat. I had thought that I would get a lot done while she was here, as far as gardening and cooking goes. But, sometimes it’s just nice to take a break from it all, and that’s kind of what I did. Hence, the lack of recent blog posts.

One thing I did manage to make while she was here are these blueberry muffins. I’m very glad I did, because this will be my go -to blueberry muffin recipe from now on. I have tried several recipes before, and every time, have been let down. The muffins were either too dense, not sweet enough, or dry. Not these though; they were perfect in every way, shape, and form.

    I love the crumb topping. Everything is better with a strudel top.

    sure does look like it could be the best one out there! 🙂

    Just looking at the streusel topping on these beauties makes me want to take a big bite. I think these might also be a great way to (re-)introduce my kids to blueberries, as they have been hesitant about the fruit itself. Thanks for passing along the best recipe!

    Anyway, I found you through Tastespotting and I’m writing to say that if you have any photos that aren’t accepted there, I’d love to publish them. Swing by my new site (below); it’s a lot of fun. I hope to see you there soon!

    Yum! Perfect time of year to make them with fresh blueberries in season.

    These remind me of the streusel topped banana muffins I made last week…you can’t go wrong with cinnamon and sugar!

    I just made blueberry muffings last week. Now I have to make them again, but with streusal(Now I kow how to spell “streusal”!) On second thought, I’m not really seeing a problem with that 😀

    blueberry muffins are typically pretty tasty, but the simple addition of a streusel makes them irresistible! lovely work. 🙂

    My one twin would love these as he’s keen on blueberries and the boxed version of your muffins.

    It’s nice to step back from it all once in a while.

    Yum these look good…I needed one of these for breakfast today!

    I will be baking these tomorrow morning. Normally when I tell Jimmy I am going to make something he is all over the internet looking for things and ends up with so many recipes, well I told him today that there is no reason for him to look for anything. My blueberries are in the freezer but I am sure that is okay. I am now off to see if you have a corned beef hash recipe. So nice to just go to a site you trust and a Chef you trust and not wonder what in the world you will end up with THANKS!!!

    Oh my Gosh….. these are so awesome. I gave six away, left four out for hubby and froze the other eight in two different little baggies. This way we always have a fresh blueberry muffin when we want it. The entire house smells so lovely, thanks for all the great recipes you share with all of us.
