Summer Time oh Summertime. A time of Fresh Berries and Sun! Oh what an awesome recipe for fresh berries. May - September is the perfect time for fresh blueberries!



Saturday I woke up early with the intent of fixing breakfast for hubby. I am not an eggs and bacon kinda girl (that's all hubby!, when he fixes breakfast that what he makes.... my usual extend of breakfast is a pop tart or cereal. haha)



But when I opened my fridge and saw my extra carton of blueberries I knew what had to be made! Blueberry Muffins!

In another bowl, mix eggs and sugar till thick. Add butter, oil, milk, and vanilla. Fold into dry ingredients.
