Robert McCloskey spent summers on Scott Island, Maine. We were not too far from Deer Isle where McCloskey lived with his wife and two daughters, on whom the characters in the book are supposedly based. I love making connections like this to old beloved books. Remember "Make Way for Ducklings"? Same author.
If you picked about a cup of teeny tiny blueberries, and left them on the counter, you could pretty much expect to find fresh muffins the next morning at breakfast. Thanks Ellen!
Now I'm still craving blueberries and am trying all sorts of recipes. I've taste tested one from the Magnolia Bakery cookbook and another from Muffin Mania. Next week I have my niece visiting. I hope she likes blueberries.
