Lemon Blueberry Bread!


Hey Friends!!

Y'all I woke up a chilly 55 degrees this morning! Fall is definitely in the air!! I think I may just haul in the Fall decor from the basement this weekend!! I'm excited!! I love all things blankets, jeans, boots, cute jackets, pumpkins, corn mazes, hayrides, festivals, it's such a blast!! 

So, I thought on this chilly morning, it'd be the perfect time to share one of my favorite bread recipes with ya'll!! Our number one pick, for soooo many years, has always been banana bread with chocolate chips, or pumpkin bread with chocolate chips! And I'll definitely share the pumpkin recipe soon!! But, I'm trying to be more adventurous in the baking realm, and make more than cakes & cookies, and try more breads and pies!! My husband is a huge lover of all things lemon and blueberry, so I knew when I spotted this yummy recipe in the Magnolia Journal, that he would drool over it!! I actually made the lemon blueberry and a banana chocolate chip, because why not. Hahaha!



Are you a subscriber to the Magnolia Journal by Joanna Gaines? I've loved it ever since my hubby started my subscription a couple years ago for Mother's Day! It's filled with not only her famous, gorgeous home decor, but gardening tips, sweet & savory recipes, realistic and beautiful everyday fashion, and stories from real people about courage, overcoming difficult seasons, women celebrating each other, and kindness. It's really wonderful, and my favorite magazine!! You should definitely grab it for a year! It arrives on your doorstep every new season, so 4 editions! It's always filled with the best things for each season! 



This one edition was filled with a variety of delicious quick breads! Like banana bread, a cinnamon nut swirl I'm dying to try, and this lemon blueberry bread! The scent of bread baking in the oven really is the most glorious, comforting, homebody aroma ever!! And bonus, yummier than ever!! Don't forget the blueberries!!



So, drum roll!! Here is the recipe for the
