Blueberry Muffin – Samantha Ann King
Annie’s Soup Kitchen is known for its blueberry muffins. On a visit there many years ago, I picked up their recipe and made a few changes. These muffins aren’t overly sweet, so they’re delicious with fresh fruit or eggs (or both) for breakfast or with a bowl of vegetable soup for lunch or dinner.

Preheat oven to 400°F.
2 ½ cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
A pinch of salt (⅛ teaspoon)
1 teaspoon soda
Mix dry ingredients together.
3 eggs beaten until frothy (The original recipe reads “beaten till stiff”, but I can never get mine stiff.)
½ cup sugar
1 ounce melted butter (cooled)
2 cups non-fat Greek yogurt
1 ½ cups blueberries (or more)
Add sugar to eggs gradually as you mix.
Fold butter and yogurt into egg mixture.
Fold liquid into dry (do not overmix).
Add blueberries. Fold gently. The batter will be thick!
Coat muffin pans. I use melted butter, but you can use your favorite oil or non-stick spray. I use two different sizes of muffin pans. One makes 6 large muffins and the other makes 12 regular size muffins, so I end up with 18 muffins. Fill the large muffins about halfway. Fill the medium muffins to the top.
Bake at 400°F for 10 minutes. THEN lower temperature to 300°F and bake for 15 more minutes.
Astrophysicist Meredith Burke’s professional life is perfect. Her personal life is another story. Years ago, a ménage with the man she loved and his roommate left her with a broken heart and a secret. She hasn’t trusted anyone since, but when she meets rugged hunting guide Charlie Connor she figures she doesn’t need to. He’s got “one night stand” written all over him.
After one night with Meredith, Charlie needs more. She’s intoxicating, and shockingly willing to give him total control of her body. When she agrees to spend an entire week with him at the lodge where he works, it’s more than he’d hoped for. But Blaine Bridges, Charlie’s best friend and boss, has his own secrets.
Blaine hasn’t seen Meredith since that disastrous encounter eight years ago, but he still has feelings for her. Now she’s dating his best friend, the man he wants for himself. When Meredith invites him to join in their naughty play, his pleasure is all-consuming. But will the secrets they all hold close destroy a beautiful beginning or bring these three lovers closer than they ever imagined?
