Despite what's stated in the intro to the recipe, I don't see myself making these every weekend. They were good, not great and almost too moist. The recipe is very high in fat (ricotta, buttermilk, butter and eggs) and given that, it should have tasted even better. I'll stay on my search for the perfect blueberry muffin recipe.

Delicious muffin recipe, the ricotta creates a moist muffin. I used lemon zest instead of orange - yum!
