December 16th-Alton Brown's Blueberry Muffins

I was feeling rather unmotivated today and we spent a pretty low key day in the house. I whipped up some of these blueberry muffins with blueberries I froze last July while the speech therapist was here.

I love Alton Brown's intelligent geekiness about food. That man can tell you the best way to make anything and then tells you why it works that way.

Agin with the foodies going over the top though. This recipe calls for you to pre-heat the oven to 380 degrees (Have you ever seen a recipe that called for that) Then, right after you put the muffins in the oven you raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees, you add 20 degrees....What gives?

Anyway, these look pretty basic but they are moist from the yogurt in them and quite tender as Alton is pretty specific about not over mixing. And he's right, of course.
