Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Lemons and blueberries go together like, well, lemons and blueberries. It's a perfect pairing. The lemons bring out the blueberry flavor (which isn't usually too strong to begin with) and in muffin form, these flavors come to life right out of the oven. These are very simple and ideal for a lazy weekend morning when you want to lounge around with the paper and a few cups of tea.
