Thanks, laboheme!!! We're actually now trying to decide between a place on AMI or Siesta Key -- do you have any insight for us??

Anna Maria Island - never been, need recs!

We're spending 5 days on AMI (tried to get a place on Siesta Key, but everything was booked). We have a toddler and an infant, but that won't keep us away from good food! :) We will get groceries (where to shop for local, fresh, artisanal produce/products??) and cook, but definitely plan to eat out a few times. Please tell us the best places to go! Thanks!!

Very Blueberry Muffins

I made these last night at midnight. Super easy recipe with delicious results EXCEPT for the quantity of salt. I wish I'd read the reviews first, although I did already cut back the kosher salt to 1 1/4 tsp. instead of the requested 2. Still too salty. Thankfully not inedible, but I can't imagine how they'd be with the full 2 tsp. Fascinating how the responses are so varied -- 'goes to show how all of our tastes are so varied, too, I suppose.
