Today was a very satisfying day in my kitchen. I kicked things off this morning by baking a batch of blueberry muffins, using some of the blueberries Travis and I picked a couple weekends ago in Michigan (which I'd frozen in the meantime) to make the blueberry muffin recipe from The New Best Recipe Cookbook (the heftiest and most helpful cookbook on my shelf). Both were a first for me (blueberry picking, and making this recipe) and both will definitely be repeated! Travis and I had a lot of fun out there in the field, filling our buckets (and our tummies) with blueberries, and are hoping to go raspberry picking this fall. The muffin recipe, while a bit more involved than your average muffin mix, produced THE BEST blueberry muffins I've ever made. These will square off against a blueberry muffin recipe I received from a co-worker (who is a long-time blueberry picker), and then a champion will be named and forever written into the family cookbook.
