Bluberry Rhubarb Streusel Muffins

Tracy Byrne

Blueberry Rhubarb Stresel Muffins | Pale YellowThere was no intention of breaking from the blog this month.  In fact, I was hoping for a resurgence and/or some updates to the overall appearance of things, but clearly that has not happened.  I don't want to be a blogger that disappears for no reason all mysteriously-like. Blueberry Rhubarb Stresel Muffins | Pale YellowSo in the spirit of honesty, here is what I've been doing in no particular order: working too many hours at DNA camp, trying to rest up from vacation/travel hangover, trouncing around Manhattan with Lynn seeing Broadway shows, getting my nails done, watching my grandmother pass away and help with the events afterwards, being in Michigan, playing with my friends kids, watching three seasons of Oz, drinking a slightly alarming amount of pinot grigio, and reading trashy romance novels.

Blueberry Rhubarb Stresel Muffins | Pale YellowThere are some causes and effects in that list.  I'm working really hard to focus my goals and not be a Debbie Downer.  At this point, I want to push forward with a positive attitude and live a life worth living.  That has to be the biggest take-away from my grandmother's life; live everyday to end.  Go to lunch with your friends, golf, bowl, spend all remaining time with your family, laugh, pray, believe, and be thankful for the energy to do it all.  I hope I inherited my grandma's energy as much as her beautiful skin!

Blueberry Rhubarb Stresel Muffins | Pale YellowNow that I'm done crying (kidding, not kidding), let me tell you about my muffins.  Some of the best muffins I've ever made (not kidding)!  Rhubarb is my new friend and paired delightfully with the blueberries; a streusel topping is always welcome to the party.  The muffins are tender, moist, and full of fruity freshness.  Make these happen!
