Just thought I should make your mouths drool a little bit about some yummy treats I've made lately.  I meant to post these muffins a long time ago, but I am not just getting around to it.  These bring back memories of picking blueberries on the blueberry farm back in Washington!

The Recipe for: The Best Blueberry Muffins
1/2 C Butter @ room temp
1 C granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 t vanilla extract
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
2 1/2 C blueberries (mash 1/2 C with fork)
2 C all-purpose flour
1/2 C milk
1 T sugar mixed with 1/4 t ground nutmeg

Heat the oven to 375.  Greese 12 regular muffin cups, including the area between each cup, or use foil baking cups.
In a medium size bowl, beat butter until creamy.  Beat in the sugar until pale and fluffy.  Beat in eggs, one at a time.  Beat in vanilla, baking powder and salt.
Mixe mashed berries into batter.
Fold half the flour in with a spatula, then half the milk.  Add remaining blueberries.
Scoop batter into muffin cups.  Sprinkle with nutmeg sugar.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.  Let muffins cool at least 30 minutes in pan before removing.  (I like to eat them warm!)

The next batch of treats I made were ones that I found on Bakerella.  When I have time I like to try out her creations, mine never look quite as good, but I am enjoying getting better at decorating things.  My class devoured these!
