Blueberry Lemon Muffins

IMG_5866This has become one of my go-to recipes in blueberry season. You can’t add enough lemon in my opinion.

“When blueberries are in season, these muffins make a glorious start to the day. But, even when berries are out of season, they’re still pretty sensational. For fresh berries, substitute the kind that are individually quick-frozen and let them thaw slightly before folding them into the batter. (Never use frozen berries packed in syrup.) These muffins are just as delicious when made with wild black raspberries. Adding cornmeal to the batter gives a slight coarseness to the texture, which I particularly like.” — Sheila Lukins Continue reading…

Lemony Potato Salad

These days my husband and I are trying to watch what we eat. Some of us more than others. By which I mean that I am really bad about staying away from stuff I like. Like massive quantities of cheese and mayonnaise. But, in the interest of keeping the both of us around on Earth longer, I went looking for a potato salad recipe that didn’t have any mayo in it. And TA DA! I found this on MyRecipes.com

Ordinarily, I leave recipes alone until I’ve made them once. However, this one looked like it needed a little extra crunch. So I added red bell pepper and radish slices. And some fresh dill I have running rampant in my garden. Maybe next time I’ll add a bit of celery too. Potato Salad

Yield: Makes 6 servings, Total: 50 Minutes


2 pounds red potatoes, cut into eighths
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
