You know what I love about muffins?  Muffins are extra large cupcakes that can be eaten for breakfast.  AND they come with no judgement.  If its eaten between the hours of 6 and 11 in the morning, extra large, and void of frosting…no one cares.  No one gives dirty looks.  It’s breakfast.  Chocolate chips and all.  I once saw a red velvet smore’s muffin at a local coffee shop.  That my friends is my kind of breakfast.  #breakfastgoals

Blueberry Cornbread Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream

I’m a southern California girl.  I was born in Mission Viejo near Laguna Beach.  I left when I was about 12 and headed to the melting pot known as Florida.  I loved my little hometown.  From what I remember, it was fabulous.  I was barely a tween, but I had good memories.  In my profession I meet people from all over the world.  So whenever I come across a southern Californian, I’m excited and tell them I’m from little Mission Viejo.  Quite often, I get a little smirk or chuckle.   A little confused, I finally asked what was so funny.  Let’s just say Mission Viejo is New Jersey and Laguna Beach is New York.

So although I was born in the west, my allegiance is to the east.  Specifically the south.  I love all things southern.  Sweet tea, corn bread, pies, fried chicken…I could go on and on.  And yes, I’m in Florida.  A state where so many argue that it’s not part of the bible belt, so it’s not really “southern”.  I say whatever to those people!  If the state serves sweet tea in their restaurants, its in the bible belt!  So here are some Blueberry Cornbread Cupcakes to commemorate my love for the south.
