Week #1 - Blueberry Muffins

I started checking out Pinterest over 2 months ago.  At first I really didn't get all the hype about it.  Then a lot of the bloggers I follow started raving about it like crazy; they even started posting about all the "pinning" they've been doing.  Overall, Pinterest is a great "bookmarking" site and an amazing site to get ideas.  So, I thought I'd give myself a 52 week challenge and pick one thing to bake from searching on Pinterest every week and preferably bake something that I have never done before.

So, this week I baked blueberry muffins............sounds boring, huh?  Well the truth is that I didn't even know I could get frozen blueberries here in Samara until a few months ago when my friend Sharon baked some blueberry muffins a few months ago.  Plus, I've never baked them in my life!  So, I went on Pinterest and searched for blueberry muffins and a gazillion pin boards popped up.  I found one recipe and tried it out.  The muffins turned out real yummy but not quite as good as the ones they sell at the Vons grocery store in L.A.

The recipe can be found here!

wow you and your challenges. love it! if i wasn't in language school right now and trying to limit extra stuff, i would totally do this with you. and i too just found frozen blueberries in my market and was super excited about it since the type of produce i can buy here is pretty limited.
