What do you like to snack on in the middle of the day? Almost definitely, you would make yourself coffee or tea. It is true for me too. I even made blueberry cheese muffin to go with my coffee today. I like plain muffin but it is usually too dry on its own. So, I added moist cheese and tangy blueberry today and it resulted in a more varied flavour and crumbly texture in every bite. Wash down with a cuppa hot coffee/tea, and the taste is even enhanced.
