I opened my Yankee Magazine Minute e-mail this morning, clicked on to read about New England breads to find a thrilling surprise – the recipe for  Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins. Not only were these the BEST tasting blueberry muffins, which I thought were gone forever due to the demise of Jordan Marsh, but they come with wonderful memories of the times my mother, Candy, Debbie and I spent shopping at this grand store just outside of Boston, sometimes with my dad and Aunt June along. As well, we found them at the Warwick, Rhode Island store which was typically a twice yearly sojourn- once in the autumn/winter and once in spring/summer – happy, happy memories!

Part of the anticipation of the trips was visiting the Jordan Marsh Bakery where we would each get a blueberry muffin to have for a mid-morning treat there, and if possible a dozen to take home to Connecticut – though they were so popular a full dozen was not always available.010
