Blueberry Lemon Muffins

My daughter came home yesterday with a little pint of hand picked blueberries.

A little box of jewels!

We deliberated as to what to do with them…pancakes or muffins?

Muffins won unanimously. They last longer and boy, did I have a great recipe for them!

It’s fragrant with the addition of lemon zest and nutmeg.

Topped with swirls of a lemon glaze.

All very easy.

Easy like a Sunday morning.

What I was making a year ago: MOCHA MARTINIS!
