Big Beautiful Blueberry Muffins

What do you do to relieve stress?

I like to:

  • listen to music
  • read (cookbooks)
  • draw/doodle
  • make crafts
  • take pictures
  • hike
  • yoga
  • watch movies
  • and last but not least, BAKE!

I decided to bake this weekend because it has been one heck of a busy week. Plus, I haven’t had blueberry muffins in forever! These muffins taste out of the world, but are surprisingly simple to make!


500mL white all-purpose flour
20mL baking powder
2mL salt
125mL sugar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 large egg
250mL 2% milk
80mL oil
250mL frozen blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line muffin pans with paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the egg, oil, and milk.
  4. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, and pour the liquids into the well. Mix until dry ingredients have almost disappeared.
  5. Fold in frozen blueberries. Do not over mix!
  6. Scoop batter into 12 paper liners until they are 3/4 full.
  7. Evenly top 12 muffins with the 2 tablespoons of sugar. (1/2 teaspoon each)
  8. Bake for 20 minutes until muffins are golden in colour and spring back when lightly pressed.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Wake Me Up When September Ends

One song I have been listening to repeatedly:
Wake Me Up When September Ends – Green Day

One thing I have been eating repeatedly:
Tortilla pizzas.

Whole grain tortilla + pizza sauce + hardwood smoked salami + red bell peppers + Laughing Cow cheese = one super easy and delicious lunch. Have a wonderful Sunday!

Taking a Break. Having a Kit Kat.


About the Kit Kat. (None for me right now; I’m waiting for Halloween to get my sugar rush.)

However, I am taking a short break.

September is here, which means the workload is going to pick up again. The first week back is always exhausting because I’m not used to my daily routine. Summer was amazing – I slept in everyday, went to bed late, had lots of free time to blog, spent time with family and friends, went to Jasper… the list goes on. Unfortunately, all of that has to end. I’ll have to sleep early tonight so that I can wake up at six tomorrow and get out the door in the next half an hour. I’m not a morning person. Never will be. Something tells me that tomorrow morning is going to be fun…

I will not be posting daily anymore; hopefully, I will have enough content for a weekly post though. I look forward to sharing my food photography and recipes with all of you when I get back!

Colossal Croissant

Sometimes, I just need a giant buttery croissant. Do you love croissants?
