Ever since I saw this recipe for Blueberry Muffins with White Chocolate Chips over at Mihl’s blog, Seitan is My Motor, it had been on my to-make list. Mihl is a baker extraordinaire and I’ve drooled over her photos and posts for years. Just as I expected, this recipe is a stunner! The crumb is perfect, the flavors lovely, and the basic muffin is a perfect showcase for the berries and chips. Since I missed making these in blueberry season, I used some frozen berries instead. What a wonderful way to start the week.
Since none of us managed to do the Food Network Friday for last Friday, Kim picked a new recipe that we’re doing for Friday, December 11th. It’s a Beef and Horseradish Sauce Sandwich. I was so excited about this recipe (horseradish, hello!), that I’ve already made it. So has Kim. The original is from Ina Garten and can be seen here. I’ll post my version of it on Friday and if you happen to join us, please be sure to post a comment so we can check out your sandwich, too! After this Food Network Friday, I think we’ll take a little hiatus until next year. Things just get too hectic this time of year.
Don’t forget to enter the book contest! And it would be a good idea to make some of Mihl’s muffins, too.
