Blueberry Cheesecake Muffins

Everyone in my house likes muffins.  Is that a silly statement to make?  As I think about what I typed, I have to wonder if there is anyone who doesn’t like muffins.  There are so many options.  For those with allergies or health issues, they can be made gluten-free, sugar-free, nut-free, whatever it is that you need.  The options for flavors seem endless:  banana, apple, chocolate chip, spice, oatmeal, corn. . .

So, when I saw that the newest bed & breakfast recipe was a muffin, I was excited to see what I could add to my repertoire.  Then I read the whole recipe title and realized how great of treat I had ahead of me.  Muffins and cheesecake in one recipe, oh my!  I have a feeling that although everyone in my house has different muffins preferences, this recipe might be the one that brings us to a common decision.
