Don't Be Blue: It's Easter Breakfast!

This is my first foray into a new blog hop. Mom's Crazy Cooking Challenge asks bloggers to bake a particular assigned food for the month. For April, it is Blueberry Muffins. The catch? You have to bake a recipe found on another person's blog. It can't be Taste of Home or Pioneer Woman or another "big name" blogger. Everyone's link is posted on the 7th of the month at a synchronized time.

So, I decided to give it a try this month. I recently discovered A Farmgirl's Dabbles, where Brenda says, "My passion for preserving all my favorite things runs as deep as my roots in the South Dakota soil. I'm fueled by family, friends, fabulous food, & a lotta faith."

This Kansas farm wife can relate to that. So I searched her blog and found her recipe for Grandma Renelt's Blueberry Muffins with Crumble Topping. Since I'm a big believer in a grandma's recipes and Randy is a big believer in all things blueberry, it seemed like the perfect contest and opportunity to jump in.

Jill, Eric & Kinley arrived last night for Easter, I figured muffins would be a special way to wake up the tastebuds. (I don't suppose Kinley will be eating many. We'll have to wait and see if blueberries are as popular with her as with her grandpa.)

Be sure and check out all the other blueberry muffins by following the blog link. Happy Easter!

A Farmgirl's Dabbles
