Lemon Blueberry Muffins

I found this recipe a while back on my old volleyball coach, Amy's, blog:
& had it saved until we got an apartment ;) 
She had gotten it from Joy Ever After's Lemon Blueberry Muffins

When I first read about these I LOVED the idea of combining lemon and blueberry-

So last night I convinced lee we needed to go out and get all the ingredients for them 
{not that they required anything unusual, we just didn't have basic stuff like flour, baking powder, etc}
Anyways, I made them this morning & I think they turned out fairly well! 
This was the first time I used our oven-
 I've been doing ALL my cooking on the stove, 
so I was excited to use it ;)

Although I had originally FOUND the recipe on Amy's blog... I failed to actually re-read some things that she had suggested and I just used the link that directly took me to the recipe.
 Oops. I wish I had re-read what she wrote. 
Basically she had said to actually use the correct amount of yo-gurt in these, but of course, that was the ONE thing I just estimated.
So I thought they were going to be a little dry... just because I didn't think I had put enough yo-gurt, but honestly they weren't bad.
{I will probably add a tad more yo-gurt next time tho}
&& I totally agreed with the other comment she had said about using MORE lemon zest. 
Like I said, I should have of read her critiques first!

But nonetheless, they turned out quite yummy.
Lee even liked them! {he wasn't originally as excited as i was about the recipe ;) }
We both ate these up rather quickly
& I will definitely be making these again.

So, thank you Amy for the yummy post! :)

Hope you all had a good week!


  1. The FIRST time you've used your oven?!! Oh man, you simply MUST make a roast chicken! Really easy although it seems intimidating at first. Just pull out the stuff that's inside the chicken (it's normally already packaged and loose, wash said bird, DRY bird, and then massage all over with a mixture of olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper...don't forget to rub UNDER the skin, AND inside the bird. Then cook at 425 for about an hour....SO delicious. You can use leftovers for home-made quesadillas (also using the oven!). And, you guys might like homemade Sheppard's pie...super simple, and super filling.

    Also, the bread recipes I use are phenomenal...white and wheat.

    Do you want any recipes?

    Super envious of your delic looking muffins!

  2. Ok... I'm going to make this tonight! I decided I need to just do it!
    I'll let you know how it goes :)
    It sounds delish!
    Thank you!

    And yes, I would LOVE your recipes. Email them?

  3. ha! i just saw this! i'm glad you bookmarked and posted and what not. i'd say most of the stuff i make turns out yummy, but i'm always always critiquing and wishing i'd done SOMETHING different. always read 5x before cooking/baking! hahah i've learned the hard way many times ;) but good job and they look tasty!
