Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

We had fantastic weather on Saturday in northeast Ohio! I hope many of you who live in the area got to get out and soak up the much needed and appreciated sunshine. :) Now that winter is over, I’m definitely looking forward to more gorgeous days in the coming weeks (we are so deprived here […]

Summer Cake Delight

This cake was totally inspired by The Kitchn’s Easy Summer Cake with Fruit & Cream recipe. I mean, isn’t that cake absolutely gorgeous? I just love, love, love it! Of course, I had to make the cake, wouldn’t you? However, I decided to use a different cake recipe (from a cookbook I own), just because it’s […]

Braided Cream Cheese and Blueberry Bread

This is actually King Arthur Flour’s Braided Lemon Bread recipe but since I’m not using lemon curd in the filling, I decided to call it the above (longish) name. :) I guess it doesn’t really matter what it’s called because all you need to know is…it’s d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s! In fact, KAF should officially rename it Delicious […]

Cream Cheese and Blueberry Pound Cake

Where has our summer gone to? Not that I’m complaining weather-wise, since the cooler weather has allowed me to bake, bake, and bake. But at the same time, it feels so strange…it feels like we’re bypassing summer straight to fall. Not only that, school will be starting in another three weeks. Yikes! Breathe, Chris…breathe. :) […]

Blueberry Sauce and Lemon Pancakes

The next thing we made with our yummy blueberries is a family favorite – blueberry sauce! And here, we pair it with lemon pancakes, something equally delicious in their own right but when combined with the blueberry sauce, they are out of this world! Enjoy! Blueberry Sauce {lightly adapted from the Blueberry Sauce recipe in […]

Blueberry Muffins

Muffins are one of my favorite things to make. They are easy to put together, they are not finicky (mostly), and they bake up pretty and delicious in no time at all. So, that’s the first thing we made with our bountiful blueberries. Enjoy! {Lightly adapted from the Perfect Muffins recipe in the McCall’s Home-Baked […]

Picking Blueberries

Blueberry season is in full swing right now, and I managed to persuade Alex to go pick some with me yesterday. It was cloudy, breezy, and cool (another weird summer day) but just perfect for blueberry picking. :) {For the past several years, we have been picking blueberries at Voytko Farms in Auburn Township, Ohio.}

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Remember the blueberries we picked a little over a week ago? They are all gone! We ate them in salads, as ice cream toppings, and as snacks…yum! :D In addition, I decided to use some to make these decadent blueberry cookies. The filling was full of summery berry flavor with a hint of citrus (and surprisingly not too sweet), and was sandwiched between crumbly, buttery crusts…so […]

Fruit Terrine

A.K.A. Fancy Fruit Jello. :D That’s what it looks like to me although this version does contain more yummy goodness than your typical jello. I love summer for all the wonderful fresh fruits that are at their prime. Because of that, I normally would eat or use these fruits as is. Alternately, I’ve discovered another […]

Picking Blueberries

It has been a while since Keith and I last watched a good movie…one where neither of us would fall asleep on the couch halfway through. :D Since we don’t ever keep up with new movie releases, picking a good show is always a toss-up. However, I think we may have hit a jackpot last night with the movie “Real Steel.” Both of us thought it was one […]
