Blueberry Muffins

It's blueberry season on the edge and I must admit that my freezer still held berries from last year. I knew my NSSP wouldn't approve of a new stash of berries so in a fit of domestic cooking I grabbed one of my Joy of Cooking's and made a quick Sunday batch of muffins.
These aren't the 600 calorie wonders of today but simple muffins from my 1942 cookbook. I find today that muffins have morphed into clawingly sweet cakes with fine crumb and no crumble. The muffins I made (and I did increase the blueberry amount!) reminded me of my childhood. Don't over mix! was the mantra. Overmixing will make the muffies tough! So with a few deft turns of my wooden spoon the wet and dry ingredients were combined, spooned in tins, and popped in the oven. A job well done and a taste down memory lane!

Look at all those Joys of Cooking! I'm impressed. I have one copy, have had others, but got rid of them as a newer version came out. Do you collect other cookbooks as well? I use my Joy all the time as a great reference.

My "joy's" are my passion. I hate to admit how many cookbooks I have- well into the triple digits. I only allow my joy's however in the kitchen.
I have a piece I've been working on about joy's and will post it soon!
