This past fall, actress and lifestyle guru Blake Lively found herself inspired by the rich traditions of southern slaveowners. Inspiration has struck Blake's beautiful head again: for Valentine's Day treats, "blue is in," as in "the Blues," as in the historical expression of "injustice and hardship in the African American community" in the deep South. The result: "B's Blueberry Stud Muffins," perfect encapsulations of both Valentine's Day and the abundant contributions to American culture made by people of African descent.
