Blueberry Struesel Muffins w/ Lemon Cream Cheese Icing (Low Carb and Gluten Free)
We got hitched when I was just 20 and he was a whopping 21 years old. I’d totally frown on that now – shaking my head sadly and saying “those kids are way too young to get married!”
But when you know, you know – and we just knew. Marrying Mr. Hungry is the smartest decision I ever made, and I’ve never once regretted it.
For years now, we’ve been planning all sorts of elaborate trips that we’d take to mark our 20th year. Italy, South America, New Zealand – something epic! But our life has taken some interesting turns in the last few years, and our anniversary day was definitely different than what either of us would have predicted 5 years ago.
We have dinner plans with friends this weekend, and a trip to CT and NYC next month, but to mark the actual day we simply had what we’re calling a “family fun day.” We took Hungry Jr. to Chuck E Cheese, had lunch at Chipotle, hit the Barnes and Noble, the Asian Market, and a local thrift shop, and came home to hang out together.
Even though it wasn’t the epic journey we had planned, we are grateful to be healthy, happy, and together when so many families are not. Sometimes stripping down to the simple things, and time spent in each other’s company are all you need to appreciate how much you really have. And we have everything we could possibly ask for.
Except these muffins. Because I finished them all last week. And now there is a giant gaping hole in my morning where this muffin should be. Even my coffee tasted better when enjoyed alongside these muffins.
These muffins make everything better. Every. Thing.
So regardless of your personal level of happiness with your life circumstances, you need to make these low carb and gluten free blueberry muffins ASAP.
If you’re already happy, these muffins will make you outright ecstatic. If your day is a little gloomy, one of these muffins will be like your own personal ray of sunshine. If you are outright irritated, these muffins will at least take the edge off and lessen the chances of your incarceration by day’s end.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that EVEN GRUMPY CAT WOULD SMILE IF SHE ATE ONE OF THESE MUFFINS. They are that good.
