To die for blueberry muffins!

That's the name of the recipe we used, and they were delicious!  The most important ingredient was the fresh blueberries, which we have lots of right now.

This is one of the 5 bushes we have, and they're all ripening now.

You also need a good blueberry picker, which Sweet Pea is.  Right after she woke up she went out and picked us some.

You also need a good mixer, one that throughly blends the ingredients.  Luckily we have the littlest gardener for that.

With those important things you get some very delicious blueberry muffins!

First thing yesterday morning we worked together and made these muffins.  They were so good warm out of the oven.  I found the recipe at allrecipes.com.  If you click here you will find the recipe.  Think we may need to make another batch tomorrow morning!

  3. Catherine, You are such a wonderfully involved mother. If only more moms were like you the world would be in a much better state.

    Your blog was at the top of my Picks page this morning which is uncanny because I just came home with 25 pounds of U-Pick blueberries! My bushes are loaded but not ripening yet. The blueberry farm's 'Bluecrop' bushes were loaded and RIPE. I must check out the muffin recipe. They look fantastic.

    Please tell you helpers that your blog buddies think they're adorable. :)

  7. Great family moments. My baby blueberry bushes will someday be big ol' "bluebs" like yours. A real superfood, and the bushes are so attractive esp. in Fall. Off to go get that recipe now!! Great post. - Bonnie

  9. It is good to have helpers, as early as the moment they wake up..

    The littlest helper is really concentrating on her job. With mouth shut tight, with eyes focussed, she will complete the job in no time...

    Blueberry looks very nice.

  10. Allrecipes is my go to place for any recipe I'm looking for! I love their star rating system too. How old is your bush? That looks like a whole lot of berries. Are you planning on making anything else? Now you just went and made me hungry. I wish my berries were ready for picking... Of course my harvest will be pitiful next to yours!

  11. What a privilege to have your own blueberries. I only see them in little boxes in grocery stores. They are not large and juicy like yours. Those muffins look wonderful. Thanks for making me hungry.

  13. As a kid, our family ran a small blueberry farm. Picking berries wasn't fun, it was a chore. However, I still have wonderful memories of my Mom's homemade blueberry jam and her wonderful blueberry buckle. In fact, tomorrow we'll be making some buckle with the blueberries I just picked up at one of the nearby farms. Can't wait!

  14. I hope some of you try this recipe, it really was a good one!

    Cinj - We've had these bushes planted here for about 3 or 4 years, and one is about 2 years old. I added lots of peat when I planted them and they really seemed to like that. Every year we get more from them. It's hard to wait, but eventually you'll be getting lots too!

  18. What fun! And all the more fun when you can pick, eat, rinse, eat, stir, bake... and EAT. I know my girls would like to follow suit. I think we'll head out to the local mid-Tenn. farm and pick a peck. We might have to try your recipe soon!

  25. We made similar-looking muffins yesterday, but with huckleberries - and they were definitely to die for! Plenty of butter, buttermilk and sour cream in the recipe also helped, I'm sure.
