This recipe is a slight variation on the one we discovered online called, To Die For Blueberry Muffins. We were searching for a recipe (or something close to it), of one of our favourite muffins we often buy at our local coffee shop - the fruit explosion muffin. The fruit explosion muffin contained various fruits and although this recipe is a blueberry muffin recipe, it looked promising, so we gave it a try.


This homemade recipe we've been making for years and was handed down to us by... someone. Adding smoked bacon is what gives it the (I'm doing the Italian kiss-fingertips-and-toss-away gesture), wonderful flavour! We sprinkled a bit of shredded mozzarella cheese on top for extra goodness!

Video: How to Roll a Croissant

Believe it or not, a lot of people (including ourselves), really don't know how to roll a dough into a croissant shape. Remember those Pillsbury Crescent rolls? We could never get those things looking right. Perhaps this simple video below (no words required), will finally help us to do so - especially when making your own from scratch because, yes, it's really that easy to roll.
