    Hi inspired taste is a very suitable name for your muffins. Today I tried the simple blueberry muffins made with frozrn blueberries and they are soooo delicious! I will be sharing them with all my friends who love blueberries.The best thing about this recipe is the fact that I could use frozen berries. Here in New Brunswich the winter is long and cold and sometimes it’s hard to find fresh anything. Also the directions were super easy.Thank you for a delicious recipe.
