Mom's Homemade Blueberry Muffin Recipe

Sunday, January 8, 2017
Today would have been moms 96th birthday. I miss her everyday. In her memory I made her blueberry muffins. Happy Birthday Mom in heaven, miss and love you everyday!

I actually always double this recipe as it will never make enough for my crew eating these. They will fly off the table. Pass the butter and eat them warm around 5 minutes out of the oven. Always a comfort for breakfast when there's a chill in the air. When the kids were little I made them often and made sure I had an abundance of blueberries in the freezer during the winter months. These sure do bring back memories and good ones of my own childhood when my mom made them for me.
I love making memories with great food stories don't you?
