April’s challenge was to find a blueberry muffin recipe.

And for a blueberry hater, it was a challenge.

But Susannah asks me every time we go shopping if I’ll buy her blueberries so I decided to dig up a good recipe – and just leave the blueberries out of a muffin or two so I could taste them too.

I don’t know if I have an actual allergy to blueberries or if I just imagine my throat swelling shut, but after a few episodes I quit eating them back in the Alaska-blueberry-picking days.

Plus, (sorry to all of the blueberry lovers out there, my entire family included) I just think they taste grody.

But I did find a good recipe, and the whole fam approved (especially Susannah), so I guess the almost $4 I spent on a tiny pint of the hideous things were worth it.

Oh, and the plain lemon muffins that I ate were good.
The only modification I made was to add a little lemon juice to the actual muffins because I like them to taste very lemon-y.
