I almost had a major panic attack a few weeks ago when I realized I had been so busy that I literally had forgotten to sign up for this month’s Secret Recipe Club. After all, I’ve never missed a single one. I was ill. Sick to my stomach. I told Jane so. She told me to be ready should there be an orphan. Well, that same night I got lucky. There wasn’t an orphan, but someone who had to step down this month and I got the slot. Breathing deep sighs of relief. Then I was in for an even better surprise. 🙂
Blueberry Coconut Muffins
When I was given my assignment I was given Jess’ blog – The Inquiring Chef.  If you haven’t been to her blog, then you are totally missing out.  What a treat for me.  🙂  Jess makes a lot of Thai food.and I love Thai food.  However, I didn’t chose to make it for my SRC post.  I went with another favorite of mine.  Lemon. She had a recipe for Lemon Olive Oil Muffins.  I decided to switch it up and add more favorites; dried blueberries and coconut!
I made a quite a few changes to the muffin.  I subbed coconut oil for the olive oil and I went with some coconut flakes and dried wild blueberries .  My recipe that I followed will be below.  These turned out pretty darn amazing.  Even Grumpy, who is not a fan of either lemon or blueberry, ate two of these on Saturday morning!
Blueberry Coconut Muffins
I didn’t stop there.  I also made something that is Grumpy’s favorite.  Butterscotch and Chocolate Pudding, layered pudding.  Deliciously sweet butterscotch swirled in with slightly bitter and dark chocolate. What a match made in heaven.
Another thing about Jess. this girl is expecting twins any day now!!  How exciting for her!  Congrats to you and your hubby Jess and I hope you enjoy your little bundles of love!

Now, you know you want to make these Blueberry Coconut Muffins!

    Shelby, I love it when you are under the gun because you always make more than you need too and it's always good stuff. (No pressure or anything!). Both of these recipes look and sound delicious.
