Mmm Mmm Muffins

Blueberries and sunshine greeted me this morning.

And a bit of buttermilk that needed to be used.

Dear Mr. Google,
Blueberries + Buttermilk =
Buttermilk Berry Muffins.
Mmmm, sounds good to me and the yellow, blue & white muffin papers with polka dots, kinda sealed the deal.  The recipe can be found here.

A sunny morning calls for a sunny yellow apron ... with a daisy tucked in the pocket.

One of the things that drew me to this recipe was the addition of freshly grated orange peel.
I love the fresh pop of flavor provided by fresh orange or lemon peel.    As I grated that peel my kitchen smelled even sunnier . . . like Florida.  A most welcome smell in January.

Blueberries are my favorite for adding to muffins.  I also love them on oatmeal, cereal and fruit salads.  For a little berry, they pack a lot of punch in the healthy eating department.  You can read more about it here if you're interested.

Twenty minutes later . . .

A most delicious (& healthy:) mid-afternoon snack.


  1. Oh my.

    I don't know what my favorite is... the apron or the muffins!

  2. My favorite..and made with fresh blueberries AND buttermilk! It just doesn't get better than that! Can I have TWO? ♥

  3. They do look healthy and soooo delicios!
    I use buttermilk in a few recipes but don't have one for muffins.
    Thanks for sharing!

  6. Hi Kim,
    Wow..those blueberries are gorgeous! And those muffins looked so delicious...I'm sure they are. I have a bunch of frozen bags in the freezer from picking this summer. May just break out a bag and make this recipe...Thanks for sharing. Hope all is well in the Carolinas! Can't believe you get that much snow!!
    Have a great weekend...

  7. Blueberry Muffins are the Best! After looking at yours I need to take a bag of our local blueberries from my freezer and bake a batch! :) Yummy!

  8. Kim, I rarely bake blueberry muffins because I am yet to get ahold of a really good recipe. But these look scrumptious! I have plenty of blueberries in the freezer and I think I'll add buttermilk to my grocery list. I'm one of those people that like to drink it too:D Thanks!

  16. Dear Kim...WOW! I love the cheery colors that you have shared in this post. It is a gloomy cold day here and this is just what I needed to add a bit of sunshine to my day!
