Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins

I have a confession to make. I secretly really love going to the dentist. Is it strange that I feel like falling asleep while the hygienist is working on my teeth?

Yes. It sure is. 

My dentist called me on Wednesday. They had an opening and asked if I could come in yesterday at 9:00. Sure! Why not. The only bad part about the experience was paying for the appointment. I'm without dental insurance this year because of school. Maybe I could go the year without going to the dentist, but I really don't want to mess up my teeth after years of braces and a herbst appliance.


On my way home I stopped at Hannaford to pick up some frozen blueberries. I had brown butter blueberry muffins on my mind all because of Joy the Baker's new cookbook that I got in the mail Wednesday. 

I've followed Joy's blog for almost two years so obviously the cookbook needed to be ordered. Her humor and style of writing comes out in each recipe. So does her love for baking.

This was my first time experimenting with brown butter but it won't be the last. I may have accidentally gotten some of the warm butter on my finger as I was mixing into the batter and it may have tasted really yummy.

The  muffins were good, but not the best I've ever had. That could have been my own doing (I wonder if frozen blueberries affect the taste, or perhaps I didn't cook them long enough). All I know is that I'm super excited to bake the other recipes in the book. 

And in case you were wondering, I am cavity free once again (*knockonwood*)
