I love blueberry muffins, but blueberry muffins with crumb toppings – I love more.
Berries are hard to come by in Manila. You have to go to specialty groceries or farmer’s market to get a glimpse of them. I know I wasn’t exposed to them when I was young, until I moved to the US and was amazed at boxes of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries lined up at a grocery store a few blocks away.
My mom used to bring me home some cooking magazines and cookbook during one of her frequent travels to California. I was always amazed at all those yummy-looking recipes, but felt so intimidated by the ingredient list you certainly cannot get so easily here in the Philippines. I just ended up staring at the photos!
