Blueberry Yogurt Muffins // take a megabite

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.

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!

Laughed out loud at the Steve Urkel reference. Clumsiness is sexy! ;) These muffins look wicked – love the use of yogurt and the pretty glaze!

I totally need some of these stress free muffins. My laundry pile has been giving me the stink eye for the past week.
