From Stonewall Kitchen to L.L. Bean

We’re taking a little break from the food-ventures to share some other highlights of my trip to Maine today. Of course there were more, and I’ll be sharing those next week. For now, it’s time to talk shopping in Maine. This may surprise you, considering I’m not really into buying stuff. I haven’t been in a department store in months, if not a year. But Southern Maine is what you might call my shopping Mecca. Why? It’s home to the stuff that does fill my life. Like cooking gadgets, leggings, and boat shoes. From Stonewall Kitchen to L.L. Bean, I found a few goodies on this trip.

Blueberry Vanilla Muffins

There’s nothing quite like popping a fresh plump, juicy blueberry into your mouth, closing your eyes, and feeling the flavor explode on your tongue. But in my humble opinion, blueberries are also the best berry to bake with. Blueberry buckle, blueberry pie, blueberry cobbler, and of course, blueberry muffins. There are countless recipes out there for the making, but I’d like to introduce you to these gluten free Blueberry Vanilla Muffins. Made with sorghum flour, they’re the perfect blend of a light and fluffy interior with a sturdy, sweet exterior and tasty top. Wait for the first spring blueberries to roll in, and whip up a batch to see for yourself…
