Streusel topped blueberry muffins


Hello! In the kitchen with Sharon this week is my good friend Lesley Lightner with her delicious streusel topped blueberry muffins. Wow, these look so good I need me some Lesley. I’m going to stop and get blueberries and make some.

Leslie is always making something good in her kitchen for her knitting meetings or her church functions and, of course, she makes all kinds of food for her husband, Ken. He’s a lucky guy to get all those goodies.

Please send me your favorite recipes. I would love to put you in the kitchen with Sharon. Send the recipes to [email protected] or call me at 937-393-3456.

If you see Lesley, thank her for this wonderful recipe.

See you all next week in the kitchen with Sharon. Have a great week!
