It's guest blogger day again today - yay! This next very special guest always seems to have a way of making me laugh. The comments she has left on my blog are laugh out loud funny. She just has a way with words.
Her name is Jen and she writes for her blog, The Misadventures of Mrs. B.
Jen shares some really amazing recipes, everything from dinners to lunches to side dishes and desserts. She has great diversity in her cooking and she has introduced me to quite a few new recipes.
She also has another side to her blog where she just writes stories as well as general daily thoughts. She is real and genuine and I think a lot of us really connect with her on that level. Jen is a fantastically gifted writer as well as cook.
So now that I have sung her praises, I'll let her get on with her recipe!
First of all, thanks to Brandie for having me here. I’m such a huge fan of this blog and the work she does. Girlfriend makes me drool! She’s also a sweet and supportive friend, as I’m sure her readers know all too well!
So you wanna know about me? Well, I run around Blog Land under the name Mrs. Jen B, and you can find me at The Misadventures of Mrs. B or on Twitter as MrsJenBardall. I started off writing about the various disasters, mistakes and clumsy accidents in my life but over time came to focus more on food and my general love of it. I still share bits of life and writing but for the most part, food is where it’s at.
Now let me ask a question in order to get to know you better: Do you like muffins?
Frankly, I can’t see how you wouldn’t. Muffins, as we all know, comprise an entire level of the food pyramid. My food pyramid, anyway. And you can’t beat a muffin and a cup of coffee or tea (and fruit if you’re feeling all healthy or something) when it comes to a quick and lovely breakfast or brunch.
These muffins happen to freeze beautifully, so bake up a bunch, toss 'em in a freezer bag, and grab one whenever you want! Just defrost them in the microwave or, if you're like me, bring one to work and let it defrost along the way.
Blueberry Muffins (adapted from AllRecipes.com)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
2 cups frozen blueberries, thawed and drained
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Thoroughly grease muffin tins, both inside and in between cups.
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients one at a time, stirring after each addition. Batter will be thick! Gently fold in blueberries.
Fill muffin cups to top and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Makes 12 large muffins.
Thanks again to Brandie for having me as a guest! I hope you all come pay me visit or drop me a line - I'd love to meet you.
Yes, I'll take 2 of those please! I gotta say, I'm kind of a sucker for muffins. They are perfect for breakfast in the morning when you are on the go. You can give one to your kids before they hop on the school bus, pass one to your hubby as he heads out the door and then throw one in your purse as you head on to work. And you still feel good that you made your family breakfast! Thank you again to Jen for sharing this yummy recipe.
I hope you will check out her blog.
