Orange Blueberry Muffins

I found Gravity of Motion when Jane Anne guest posted over at Rocks In My Dryer about life with a food allergic child. I've continued reading GoM (and RIMD, and many others!), and Jane Anne recently posted a delicious muffin recipe.

The kids had a 'snow' day today - using that term very loosely - and we needed something fun to do. They were not as interested in helping me clean and organize the pantry as I'd hoped. So, we made Jane Anne's muffins! You'll have to check out GoM to get all of the details, including the recipe (and leave a comment while you're at it - bloggers love comments!). Let me just tell you that it's a scratch recipe, it takes a full stick of butter (so you know it's yummy!), and it uses orange zest and juice. Since we were zesting an orange, we used fresh juice, too (zest of one navel orange, juice from two). The kids helped me measure, sift, mix, squeeze, stir, and scoop. Then they helped me taste. Oh. My. Goodness. You must make some for yourself. You will not want to share.

YUMM-O! Come make some at my house. I have a whole muffin recipe book. Maybe we could trade secrets. Ohh and couldn't you have sent enough snow my way to get a delayed start at school. I wanted some extra sleep!

Oooh - a muffin recipe book? Can you bring in in March?!? Would have shared ALL of the snow with you - I am not fond of snow days....

You are such a great Mom! You get so excited about doing these fun things. We usually bake cookies together- which is fun! But, sometimes it is so hard to completely change your plans on a dime and come up with a fun activity for them! Way to go!
