Blueberries for Thalia

Thalia Grace, my 2-year-old, likes blueberries.


The last time we visited my in-laws, she ate nearly 6 ounces of them.

In one sitting.

Yesterday we made some mini blueberry muffins.

She got to mix the dry ingredients.

Sweet, antioxidant rich blueberries.

We took turns sprinkling the streusel on them.

 The streusel is my favorite part.

Don’t you want one now?

Thalia loved them.

Do you have a favorite blueberry recipe?
