Blueberry Muffins

Here’s a quick, easy recipe for blueberry muffins, to get your holiday weekend off to a great start. It takes no time to put together and you don’t’ even need a mixer – in fact it’s preferable to make these muffins the old-fashioned way , with a large bowl and a wooden spoon, so you don’t get blue batter by overbeating.  The recipe calls for frozen blueberries, which I find makes it easier to mix the batter – and makes it an anytime treat. I look out for good deals on blueberries, when the’re in season.  I bring them home, freeze them on a cookie sheet and pop the individually frozen berries in a container.  Since they’re not frozen in a clump it’s easy to grab a handful to add to a dish.
