Best Blueberry Muffins

It is not very often I would label something as ‘BEST’ since I’m a natural skeptic. Tiger (aka hubby) would be the best judge for that. He thinks my palette is too difficult to please. Very often, the restaurants we visited based on rave reviews online turned out to be meh. (Meh – an expression of indifference, uninterested or boredom. Used frequently by my teenage daughter. source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meh). Maybe my expectations were too hyped up by those astounding epicurean vocabulary used in the food reviews. Anyway, that’s another story.
