For this weeks Food Network Chefs Cooking Challenge hosted by I Blame My Mother is Alton Brown. I knew I would have a blast cooking a recipe from him, but time did I have the time. So because time is a short and precious thing some weeks, I choose a Blueberry Muffins recipe. Boy I am glad I did. They turned out beautifully fluffy, moist, slightly sweet and absolutely everything I would want in a muffin. Delicious.
So because time was short, I don’t have my step by step pictures.
But I hope you enjoy these!
I know we sure did!
