We spent this past weekend up in the mountains with my family.  My parents were in town, so we rented a house to celebrate Christmas.  My brother and SIL met us up there as well.  It was so much fun, and so relaxing.  We brought tons of food, so we could cook and just relax.  Traditionally we have French Toast for our Christmas breakfast, so that was on the menu for sure.  My brother wanted to add his favorite blueberry smoothie to breakfast as well.  Blueberries are known to help with memory, so there was joking all weekend about making sure we got enough blueberries in our diet.

I always have frozen blueberries in my freezer.  They are so easy to throw in smoothies for a quick and healthy breakfast or even just to snack on.  Blueberries have only 80 calories per cup, are high in vitamin C, and are a good source of fiber.  The US Highbush Blueberry Council website has lots of great recipe ideas and even more facts about blueberries.  Frozen blueberries are one of the few fruits that I think are equally delicious frozen and fresh.  Plus there are just so many things you can do with them.  You can follow along on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest to see all the latest happenings.

You all know that muffins are one of my favorite things to make.  I have made blueberry muffins here before, but after trying a different baking method with these Triple Chocolate Muffins, I wanted to try it with other varieties as well.  You start by baking the muffins at a super high temperature, and then lowering it to finish cooking.  The muffins get a high domed top but are still soft, tender, and full of plump blueberries.  Great to have in the freezer for quick week day breakfasts.
