I found myself baking these in lieu of writing my grant application yesterday. :) I happily pass on the procrastination to you.

    1. Ha ha, thanks Claire! Me too! I tried sooo hard to write a lengthy synopsis (about a book only 1/3 of the finished, sigh) but caved and hid in my kitchen instead. ;)

    1. I know, I’m bad, ha ha. :) I’m applying for writing grants to help fund my novel-in-progress. I get grumpy every time I have to write a synopsis!

      1. Thank you! I’m determined to get back to work…eventually. It’s just nice to procrastinate a little sometimes. Especially when there’s a food reward, ha ha. ;)

  1. Baking is my favorite way to procrasti…uh… multi-task. When the weather cools down next week, I need to try this recipe because I can’t resist trying any blueberry recipe that includes a streusel topping.

    1. I love multi-tasking too, ha ha! And streusel topping. ;) Oh cool, I hope the recipe works out for you. I’m a sucker for blubes too. I was happy with the way the muffins turned out because sometimes I find berry muffins can be a bit mushy, if you know what I mean. But luckily these ones weren’t. I think it also helped that I used smaller wild blueberries. Thanks for stopping by, Kas! :)

    1. Thanks, Lynn! Things have been hectic lately but I hope to post some fall baking recipes soon. Thanksgiving’s just around the corner up here. My favourite! :)
