You know those people who clamor for the corner pieces of a store-bought sheet cake ... the ones slathered with thick frosting on both the top and two sides?  Or, that immediately claim the piece with the huge rose decoration smack in the middle so they can gobble up that big glob of frosting?

Yeh, I'm definitely not one of those people.

See, I'm super picky about my frosting.  And most store-bought frostings are simply too overly sweet for me.  Or, kind of greasy, know what I mean?  Or, just have no real flavor at all.

But this homemade Vanilla Buttercream Frosting?  Now, this is a frosting I will clamor for!

I am a dark chocolate fanatic.  Well, actually ... I'm an any-kind-of-chocolate fanatic.  Though I especially adore dark chocolate.

But I must admit, when I stumbled across the combination of dark chocolate and blueberries in these Dark Chocolate Blueberry Muffins, I was skeptical.  Chocolate? ... Yes.  Blueberries? ... Yes.  Together in a muffin? ... I wasn't sure.

But given these are two of my absolute favorite things, I just had to give the combination a try.

And you know what?

Edible Arrangements® Mother's Day Swizzle Bouquet®


My Mom is one of the hardest working, kindest, and most thoughtful people I know.  She's always taking time to make sure we, her family, know how special we are to her.  Whether it's by cooking us our favorite meal when we visit, making sure her grandkids' favorite drink is always in her refrigerator, planning and setting up our family's annual Easter egg hunt, or giving us a little something just-because to let us know she's been thinking of us.

And while I think I'm pretty decent at letting her  know just how special she is to me throughout the year, Mother's Day is definitely a great opportunity to make sure  she knows how much I appreciate everything she does for me and for all her loved ones.

Thankfully, with their hand-crafted fresh fruit arrangements, Edible Arrangements® is here to help make celebrating my Mom ... and all  the wonderful Moms and special ladies out there ... easy!  Whew, do they ever have some great Mother's Day gifts available.
