Ardyce Piehl of Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin relates, "These moist muffins are chock-full of blueberries. I keep frozen berries on hand-it's so convenient to be able to fold them frozen into the muffin batter."
When most people think of Maine, they immediately think of lobster. But we who live here know of something equally as good: wild blueberries. Their flavor is unmatched, and they're especially great in muffins.
Meet the Cook: While these are delicious year-round, you could easily turn them into an edible Christmas gift. They look festive on a decorative tray wrapped in red or green cellophane or tucked into a giveaway cookie plate. And don't forget to include the recipe so your recipient can enjoy this treat over and over again!
I'm planning to share my muffins with the ladies in my church group and also with the Alabama Farmer's Federation, of which I'm a member.

"Our four kids like slices of this moist tropical-tasting banana bread for breakfast," comments Mary Watkins of Chaska, Minnesota. "I sometimes bake it in mini loaf pans, then freeze the loaves so we can enjoy a small portion at a time."
