Welcome to my blog. I have had ALS for 10 years now.

Since I started this blog in June 2008 I've had amazing feedback. Family, friends, people from all over North America, Australia, Scotland, England, and places I can't recall, have commented, encouraged and corresponded. I had no idea when Cynthia taught me how to set this up, how much I would love posting and how many people would read it. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has helped propel this therapeutic exercise into a daily routine. All of you, both friends and visitors, are now part of my blog family. Welcome.

Easy Blueberry Yogurt Muffins


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of vanilla low fat yogurt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (divided)
  • 1 tbsp sugar

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spoon 2 cups of flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, 1/3 cup of sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture. In a separate bowl, combine orange juice, oil, vanilla, yogurt and egg; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moist. Gently fold in 1 cup of blueberries

Spoon batter into a muffin tray that has been coated with cooking spray. Divide the remaining 1/2 cup of blueberries between the muffins; sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar evenly over the muffins.

Bake for 17-19 minutes or until tester inserted in center comes out clean. Remove muffins from the pan immediately and place on a wire rack to cool. Slather with butter and enjoy.
