Many Berry Muffins

For you, my away-from-home girlchild-grown, as your thoughts are roving homeward ~ which is berryward this time of year ~ with love from your Mami who misses you. 

 May you bake these in health and share them with love and take joy both before and after.

[based on a blueberry muffin recipe in Enchanted Broccoli Forest by Mollie Katzen]
