Blueberry Muffins

Saturday mornings are pretty routine around here for Husband and I. Every Saturday morning we drop off our recycling at the center and then grocery shop for the weekend. Living in Germany, things are sometimes not as convenient as it is back in the States. Here the stores are closed on Sundays and many small, local businesses lock their doors Saturday around noon. 

Before our Saturday morning errands begin, we start our weekend off with breakfast together. It used to mean pastries bought from our neighborhood bakery, but the last few months Husband and I have been taking turns preparing breakfast for each other. This is an unspoken agreement and it doesn't hurt that Husband can fry up a pretty delicious French beignet. 

Lately, I have had blueberries on the brain and so this weekend I baked... 
homemade blueberry muffins.

I wish I could claim this recipe for myself but I can't... I found the recipe after a Google search on The recipe is titled "To Die for Blueberry Muffins" and while I think that is a bit of an exaggeration, these muffins are absolutely a make again. I'm really glad I trusted the 6,821 recipe reviews. I mean I'm not even rating these muffins, I'm writing a blog about them. People, you know they must be good!

Husband is sometimes impatient whenever I photograph our food. It is a bit mean of me to set a plate of piping hot, fresh blueberry muffins down in front of him and then yell "NOT YET!" as I grab my camera. Three minutes is about all Husband can stand watching me switch camera settings, rearrange the plate, and move around to the right light. Heck, it's about all I can stand as well without stuffing these beauties in my face.

Some things can just make life more beautiful. Homemade blueberry muffins on Saturday morning is one of the simpler things.
