Blueberry Peach Muffins

Hubby and I were getting ready to leave for vacation and I wanted to do some baking (shocking, I know!) I decided to make some muffins since they travel well. I had seen this recipe on Katie’s blog and it instantly made me think of the spiced peach jam I made for Steph Chow’s Jam Exchange. When it came time to bake these muffins, I decided to use up an extra pint of blueberries we had in the fridge instead of adding a cut up peach.

These muffins were delicious! Hubby said they’re the best muffins I’ve ever made, and I make muffins on a regular basis. They were extremely moist and the peach and blueberry flavors go well together.

    I know you said lighter dessert idea, but I’m picturing a cranberry mousse tart with dark chocolate drizzled on top!

    This looks delicious! Also, can I ask…what kind of backdrop do you shoot your photos on? It is so clean and really highlights the food at hand!

    Rachel – For the majority of my photographs, I use 12″x12″ scrapbooking pages. I have a bg folder with all my pages in them. I have been using a lot of solid colors recently. I have to admit I love how the blue background really makes the pink mousse pop in these pics!
