|I have been searching for the " authentic" Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffin Recipe! |
Does anyone have it? If so, please email it to me at
Here is one from www.cooks.com
It is very good but not the JM Blueberry Muffins, I remember.
1/2 cup butter
2 cups all unsifted flour
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tablespoons Turbinado sugar for the tops
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
In a large mixing bowl cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy; add eggs, one at a time
beating after each addition.
In a second bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter and sugar mixture
along with the milk and vanilla.
Optionally, mash 1/2 cup of the blueberries, and stir in by hand. This
will turn the batter a light shade of blue and ad a touch of blueberry flavor.
Add the remaining whole berries and stir in gently by hand.
Spray a 12 muffin baking pan with Baker's Joy (my favorite baking product).
Fill greased muffin cups with batter. (I got 9 muffins not 12.)
Sprinkle sugar on top of unbaked muffins.
Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick put in the middle comes out clean.

Back in 2003, we celebrated our Mother's birthday
at this fabulous restaurant! We remember our
experience as being wonderful. Years have gone
by and we always wanted to return. Well...
last night we did!
|One of the specials of the evening was a chicken |
stuffed with lobster. It rested on a bed of
angel hair pasta and spinach! YUMMY!
|Portuguese Cod, served brilliantly with a sauce, colorful |
vegetables...almost too beautiful to eat!

|Two Sisters recipe for "Fresh Corn and Tomato Salad" on page 88 with a new Southwestern flare.|
Instead of basil use cilantro. Add a can of rinsed black beans and...
there you have it! A new twist to one of my favorite summer recipes.
|Marinated flank steak with grilled peppers. You can purchase these |
colorful peppers in a bag. Toss in a little olive oil and some spices .
You can put them on wooden skewers. Just make sure you soak the
skewers in water first or they'll burn.
|A delicious plate of Southwestern fare! Yummy, colorful, pretty to look at |
and so wonderful to taste! This is a real crowd pleaser
And...don't forget the Sangria!!

|A large snapping turtle has once again found her way up the 250 feet|
from the pond to the edge of a perennial bed. She's looking for the
perfect soft spot to lay her eggs.
Each year around the 14th of June, Flag Day, this
natural phenomenon occurs.
|In the pouring rain |
on this Friday the 13th of June,
she works very hard digging, looking around all the while being
totally aware of her surroundings.
