Blueberry Streusel Muffins

When Eric and I first met, we went over the basic “getting to know you” stats. Number of siblings, favorite movie, music preferences, ect. And then there was one additional piece of information I knew he would need to know right off the bat. I get sick ALL the time. I eat healthy. I wash my hands. I exercise…Yet I still manage to get terrible head colds, fevers & ear infections…more often than the average gal. Eric and I started dating on a Friday. I was at home sick, with a fever by the following Monday morning. I clearly wasn’t kidding. That first time I got sick, he responded quickly with soup, cold medicine & cross word puzzles. And his wonderfully thoughtful “get well soon” methods have just gotten better and better. Last Monday I found myself with not one, but two ear infections and a terrible cold. Eric, being Eric, was over in about 10 minutes flat with juice, soup & a blueberry muffin. And it was delicious. So now that I’m feeling much better I decided to make some blueberry muffins of my own to share with my fantastic caregiver. I also got him some pizza…because there was this one time on Monday when I coughed in his face. I’m such a catch.

This muffins are very moist and have a sweet cinnamon flavor. And the blueberries look and taste so very pretty.
