Maine Blueberry Muffins

How about a recipe today?  I’d love to, thanks for asking!  These are my Maine blueberry muffins.  Why Maine?  Because this recipe uses real Maine blueberries.  You don’t have those?  You can substitute the ones your local store has – just don’t expect them to taste like fresh Maine blueberries.  *grin*

Two secret ingredients make this recipe rock: lemon juice and cinnamon.  These turned out beautifully and even though I’m just “starting to cook” I enjoyed playing with several blueberry muffin recipes to create the best blueberry muffins I’ve eaten.  The photos came out *very* well, too, which really made me happy!
