Recipe from King Arthur Flour Cookbook.  You can find it here on their website, although the web directions very slightly. You can fill the muffin liner to the top, they don’t really spread.

I plopped the blueberries into each liner instead of mixing them into the batter, since my husband prefers chocolate chips to any fruit–so he gets special muffins. 😉

The Streusel topping is in the cookbook as well. If I recall off the top of my head, it’s 1/2 cup flour, 6 tbs of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts, 3tbs of soft butter, pinch of salt, and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, all mixed together with your fingers.

I admit it. I’m “That guy” (well, girl) the one who takes pictures of their food and posts in on all social media for everyone to see.

Taking a photo with your iPhone is much more discreet than pulling out a DSLR to snap a quick picture of your food before you chow down in a public place.

Some of these photos take me back to a particularly fun time: Cappuccino in Italy with my husband on our honeymoon! Chocolate Chip Pancakes at The Stack after going to Mass on a Sunday morning. Those pancakes were quite the experience with fresh whipped cream…..mmmm. I need to go there again.

Being able to instantly share those kind of moments with all of your friends is fun. It’s like a modern day postcard saying, “Wish You Were Here!”
