Blueberry Muffins

I have been craving blueberry muffins for around two weeks now. While browsing the grocery store I see them in their little plastic containers and all I'd have to do was pick one up and place it in my cart, but I didn't. They've been on my mind almost nightly, yet I nev
er just went and bought some. I knew I could make them at home and that I had the supplies, but I needed motivation. I've been spending almost every day 4+ hours at the local animal shelter helping with the kitties. I've also been fostering a couple kittens and boy do they wear me out! I'm on my fourth set and it's very enriching and warms my heart when I see their adoptive families cuddling them in joy.

Anyway, back to the muffins! I decided today was the day. TODAY I was going to make some Blueberry Muffins. I trusted Google to set me in my direction and it came up with a recipe called "To Die for Blueberry Muffins." It seemed easy and I loved the crumbly bits that went on top before baking.

I may of cooked them a little too long, but they had a slightly crunchy crusty top that was sweet and a super moist center LOADED with blueberries! I kind of like a crust on my muffins so it worked for me. I took a look at others' photos and each one varied. I think these were pretty good and will taste even better once I'm over this cold that's ruining my taste buds!
