Blueberry Muffins from Amy's Bread

These muffins were just the way muffins should be: moist, bursting with berry flavor and crowned with high, domed tops. The batter is just the right consistency to hold the blueberries suspended evenly throughout the muffin and just the right sweetness to complement the berries. The recipe is from The Sweeter Side of Amy's Bread.

Amy's Bread is a bakery in Manhattan and one of the many I plan on visiting when I visit New York at the end of September! Yup, this girl is going to the big apple for a week! I'm so excited to try all these restaurants and bakeries that I have only read about or watched as they were featured on the Food Network. If anyone knows of any "must visit" places, I'd love to hear about them!

Here's an nyc tip: Dutch, an excellent new restaurant in the West Village. We spent a week there in July and I came across the restaurant on the NYC Times food blog and made the reservation. great food, great drinks, fabulous service and while not cheap also didn't berak the bank.

On the cheap side, the Shake Shack for a really good burger. Always on the best burger in NYC lists, and deservedly so we discovered.
