It’s the new year. The start of every new year brings new hopes, dreams and resolutions. I’ve been dreaming of a Kitchen Aid stand mixer for a very very long time. This is the year that my dream has been realized. Hubby came through and surprised me. We made room on the counter for this beauty and I promptly put it to work.
My adorable little feet turned 1 today. Time sure does fly. To mark the occasion, I baked blueberry muffins. I know it’s not the traditional cupcakes. But I figured that muffins are probably better for the daycare crew.
After a quick search, using my handy iPhone All Recipe App, I came upon “Blueberry Muffins to Die for”. Who wouldn’t want to try muffins with that title? Luckily, I had all the ingredients on hand. With my new Kitchen Aid stand mixer prep was a breeze. The recipe makes 8 large muffins. I doubled the recipe (but ran out of sugar) and had enough for 16 regular sized muffins. The muffins are still very tasty even with the lower amount of sugar.
Hopefully the little munchkins will enjoy the muffins and the celebration.
