Blueberry Bran Muffins

These muffins made regular appearances in our home growing up and now, I hope they will start to make regular appearances in my home. They are delicious and packed full of goodness! I almost always have all of the ingredients on hand to make these muffins, so they don't take much fore thought. If I don't have blueberries, I would add raisins, cherries or nuts.

Blueberry Bran Muffins

1 cup milk
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
