Blueberry Muffins with Cinnamon-Crumb Topping

82170

Last weekend, my kids went blueberry picking at Petals from the Past while I was in Park City at EVO. When I got off the plane (at almost midnight), I came home to a refrigerator full of fresh blackberries, blueberries and Chilton County peaches. I was so excited to have the freshness of summer at my fingertips after a long day of traveling. My daughter, Leigh, and I made blueberry muffins the next day and chose to make some with Greek yogurt (I love Fage) and a cinnamon crumb topping. Needless to say, 2 days later, they are all gone.

EVO Conference and My First Time in Park City

Last week I had the luckiest and most wonderful opportunity to attend EVO, a conference focusing on the evolution of Women in Social Media in Park City, Utah. It was beyond my expecations, and to be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect as this was my first “blog” conference. I usually attend the yearly IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) conference, and this conference was even more unique in many ways. Read below for some of my favorite highlights.
