lemon blueberry muffinsToday I will be packing so tomorrow I can head on a plane to the Food and Wine Conference which starts on Friday in Orlando. I can’t wait as I know there is one great weekend ahead of me.  As usual, I waited until the last minute to get a hair cut and pedicure which I will be headed to shortly. But I thought I’d get one short and sweet post in.

To me, muffins are the perfect summer comfort food. I made these last week for a friend that is sick and it was just what she wanted. They are light, sweet and perfect with a cup of coffee or tea. Blueberries are plentiful in Jersey right now. Paired with lemon, these muffins are the perfect summer baked treat. Don’t be afraid to fill up the muffin tins. These muffins have nice tops like the ones you see in bakeries. They are crunchy on the outside but soft and moist on the inside. Today is a cloudy,thunderstorm filled day so I might whip up a batch of these this afternoon.

If you want to get a glimpse of my weekend and see all the great food and wine I will be consuming, take a peek at my Instagram page. Have a great weekend everyone!
