This weekend was a success! I hit up the bloody mary bar at Social Kitchen with Cindy and Nicole. I almost knocked over a giant jug of tomato juice, and then dropped my snack skewer on the ground (and still ate it). I don’t know what it is about going out in public that immediately turns me into Steve Urkel.
This lady brunch adventure was just what I needed! You see, I’ve been needing some no-nonsense fun. The kind that is a fun/silly distraction from common little stress-causers.
And these muffins are the baked version of that hang-out. They’re an easy/delicious recipe that is a solid distraction from the bread that you made (I made) that somehow ended up hollow. It’ll totally make you forget for a minute that you’re feeling stressed about the dishes and the laundry.
So let’s muffin our lives away! They’re the baked good remix of a simple/fun friend hang-out.

sometimes you just have to nerd-up the bloody mary bar and accidentally skewer a mini hot dog as a garnish. it’s life! that was a pretty amazing lady brunch, I’m pretty sure the waiter was either freaked-out or totally amused by us. ha! Also, points for immediately confusing the bus boy.
What’s goin’ on?
Good, how are you?!
ha It was too early for anything to be going on.
Our brunch could be scripted for tv! There’s nothing like a girly good time with a sticky bun appetizer. Your muffins sound perfect and I’m a sucker for vanilla bean flecks!
I’m always looking for a way to use up flavored yogurts – we always have one or two that are near their expiration date that need to be used up immediately. These look so pretty and delicious, and I love that nail polish!
Yeah man! Thanks! It’s my new favorite shade. 🙂
steve urkel reference FTW!
Yes!! Laura Winslow, what?
Laughed out loud at the Steve Urkel reference. Clumsiness is sexy! 😉 These muffins look wicked – love the use of yogurt and the pretty glaze!
haha Thanks, Amanda!
No-nonsense fun in muffin form! I’m in! Urkeling may still occur…
I would really like a whole basket of these right now.
p.s. I would have totally eaten the groundstruck skewer as well.
The blueberry yogurt sounds like such a wonderful addition to these muffins!
I totally need some of these stress free muffins. My laundry pile has been giving me the stink eye for the past week.
I have all these ingredients almost all the time. These seriously sounds perfect. Lemon, blueberry, lemon. Yes.
