while i have tried a few other recipes by the Pioneer Woman in the last couple of weeks, i do not have many pretty pictures to show. they just didn't turn out right. however husband has been asking me to cook some of them again.. so most likely there will be many more Pioneer Woman recipes on the blog soon. now the first of her recipes that i tried... the Blueberry Corn Muffins.
since it is currently the blueberry season, i am sure everyone around is baking their favorite version of these corn muffins.. just in case your recipe isn't the one that PW shared, reconsider it... for hers is really good. the thing that sets it apart from the other recipes that I have seen and tried is the fact that she uses dried blueberries instead of fresh ones. Oh don't cringe at the idea of dried blueberries. they are really good. i oven dried a cup of blueberries using this recipe and was duly rewarded. now its your turn. trust me. these muffins are worth that extra step and oven drying the blueberries isn't that complicated. simply toss a cup of blueberries with a teaspoon of honey and bake them on a sheet of parchment paper at 225 degrees F for about 2 hours or until shriveled but still supple. while PW does not mention the honey coated version of dried blueberries, I think it is a nice addition to the recipe since the honey coating helps the blueberries stay afloat instead of sinking into the batter...
okay now PW's recipe for the Blueberry Corn Mini-Muffins...

by the way, if you are wondering about my choice of props for the photographs...
well thats what happens in a house where you are out numbered by beings of the opposite gender.. sometimes the only fancy props available are shiny toy cars and action figures ;-)
Have a good day !
