Here is a little taste from my childhood. Although I always want the best for my followers, I had to think twice about putting one of my moms best muffin recipes on my blog. But after all the pros and cons were thought out in my mind, I could not hide this one from you!

Growing up I vividly remember many mornings and evenings when these delicious blueberry streusel muffins would come out of the oven! My siblings and I would just go wild whenever we knew these muffins were being baked. We could not keep our hands off of them, even when they were piping hot out of the oven.

That probably explains why a lot of the time I burnt my tongue on the first bite! But regardless of how many times I injured my tongue on these blueberry muffins, I will always remember this great baking concoction of my moms. So thanks mom and I can’t wait for your next batch!
