Blueberry Muffins

I have about five different blogs I follow that have done blueberry muffins or cupcakes and I've been craving them since the first blueberry post I saw. We had breakfast last night for dinner (my fave!) and I had my mom pick up some blueberries for my pancakes. Well, pancakes don't really need that many blueberries (especially since I'm really the only one that eats them that way) so I made Banana Blueberry Muffins. I found a recipe on, my go-to site for recipes, and found a banana chocolate chip muffin (check the recipe out) and switched out the chocolate for blueberries. The only thing I did really was increase the amount of blueberries. I think I put in a cup but I say add as many as you like. These are very very yummy and moist. I should have put crumble on top but I wasn't thinking. It was late and I was tired.

Fourth of July

Happy Fourth everyone! I know I'm late but I was a little busy. This is going to be very short today. This is another decorated cookie entry. So recipes are still the same. Same sugar cookies. Same royal icing. But anyways, I made these cookies with my little girl. I'm hoping to make this something we do every holiday: I make the fancy cookies while she paints them. Eventually she'll get into decorating them too and we'll be a pair of decorating cookie fools! So here she is showing off her cookies and may I just say, she did a spectacular job, just look at the pride in her eyes.

And here's my take on the Fourth of July cookies.

Hope you had fun and enjoyed fireworks somewhere, if not here's a pic of what I saw.
