So I just boldly stated to Luke and my parents "I think this was the
that I've ever had!" They gave me crazy faces, laughed and told me that
I must just be hungry. But seriously it was. I tried to get my dad to
side with me because he halved it with me, but he just gave me one of
those crazy faces. Then my mom said "It was from Starbucks at the
airport and it's been in this brown bag squished in my luggage bag all
day." I don't care, it was the best blueberry muffin ever.
I actually tried to make blueberry muffins from scratch last week. It's
just not the same. Have you ever made blueberry muffins from scratch?
They taste weird. Ironically they taste weird because of the fresh
blueberries. It was too real. Luke loved them, but I was so
disappointed. I was hoping that the fresh berries would make the muffins
even better than the box can, but it was sort of a toss up in looking
for a recipe and I didn't know what I was going to get. It was kinda
like ordering strawberry lemonade at a restaurant.
I really enjoy fresh strawberry lemonade, NOT the kind made from a
powder. Sometimes restaurants serve the powder kind and try to pass it
off as strawberry lemonade, but I can totally tell the difference and
not just because the real kind usually has strawberry shavings in it.
It's like the difference of real fruit vs. strawberry candy. Strawberry
candy tastes nothing like real strawberries, so why is it named
"strawberry?" They should just call it "pink sugar candy."
So anyway back to the muffin. If anyone has a recipe for blueberry
muffins that taste like the kind you get at a bakery OR even better the
kind that you can get at Soupplantation (Christa can actually get pretty
close at making those) then PU...LE...ZE share! Because it hasn't quite
hit summertime here so our oven is still in full time operation.
And speaking of recipe's I would love to have. If anyone knows how to
make strawberry lemonade (the real kind) OR the peach ice tea from Olive
Garden then I would love to have those as well!
