I spotted these muffins on a really great website back in May (per usual) and immediately wanted one. However, blackberries weren’t quite in season yet, and I didn’t have much time or reason to make muffins for no specific reason (tragic, I know). I was in the process of preparing to move home, where these photos were taken, and making yet another item to store just didn’t make sense. By the time I graduated, moved home, unpacked all of my cooking crap [confession: not everything is unpacked yet] the berries were in season and I was totally set….
Northern Ohio is known for having fairly erratic (often deemed bipolar) weather. It can be 30 degrees and overcast one day, 60 and sunny the next, and then snowing two days later. Especially with spring- last year I was wearing my winter coat until what seemed like the first days of May. However, this year I was pleasantly surprised when in early March we started having consistently sunny, warm weather.
Suddenly everyone was wearing open-toed shoes, biking around and drinking iced drinks. Immediately I began to yearn for the fresh produce found in summertime markets, and decided that waiting until July to make my favorite berry pie just wasn’t going to happen.
