Mixed Greens & Blueberry Salad

So, I’ve made it to Texas. I’ve been hunkered down here in this big ol’ house, hanging pictures, decorating, arranging the kitchen.  It’s been 12 days now – but it seems like so much less. Time is FLYING.  Soon, Seven and my mom will be here (one week from today!) and we JUST got their […]

Low Calorie Blueberry Ginger Ale

Blueberry Ginger Ale. I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this sooner, but perhaps it’s because I lived in Virginia, versus Texas. Why should that matter? It does.  It really, really does. You see, in March, in southern Texas?  It was in the 90s. Not the COOL 90s, like, with Nirvana and The DMB, […]

Wild Blueberry Cornbread Muffins

New Year, folks. Time to start all over again.  Wash away the old, bring in the new.  But before we can do all that, we have to look at ourselves with fervor, and demand answers to our own questions.  The hard truth, the questions  we struggle to answer. For example…What kind of cornbread lover are […]

Blueberry Banana Muffins and all about Dole

I adore muffins. Yes, I like them sweet.  I think secretly, we all do.  It’s still breakfast food, but it’s dessert…without trying too hard.  And, because so many muffins include fruit (like blueberries, bananas, raspberries, peaches) – it feels like we are being healthy. Oh, we are so cute, aren’t we? Truth though, we could […]

Blueberry Muffin French Toast

I love working with Krusteaz.  It’s not work.  It’s play.  Delicious, tantalizing play. Take for example, a challenge they presented me with recently, to use their already scrumptious Wild Blueberry Muffin mix in a new and different way. Personally, I adore eating them straight out the oven, slathered in butter.  But that’s hardly new and […]

Blueberry Cheesecake Pastry Squares

Some recipes are just too easy. You may not know it yet, but you will.  And this recipe is one of them. Blueberry Cheesecake Pastry Squares. I adore cheesecake.  New York Style, tall as heaven, thick and creamy and tang tang tangy.  But that kind of cheesecake takes me over 6 hours to bake (my […]

Gluten Free Tropical Blueberry Cake

I don’t live a gluten free lifestyle.  In fact, I am sad for people who have to.  I love bread. I love cake.  I love pastries.  Most of all, I love not having to worry about whether or not what I am eating will hurt me, because it contains something my body can’t tolerate. That […]

Blue Valentine Mojito

Don’t be sad. A Blue Valentine can be a great thing. Not like the movie Blue Valentine, which I still haven’t decided if I love or hate.  It pains me to see Ryan Gosling looking like, well, a normal man, with a receding hairline and glasses.  I can see THAT at Walmart.  I want the […]

Blueberry Cheesecake in Jars

I am in love with mini Weck jars.  I can’t help it…they are adorable, and who wouldn’t want to eat a dessert out of one?  I mean, really…imagine you are at a fun Sunday Brunch, and the hostess delivers out a tray of these guys?  Tell me you wouldn’t want to dig right in? I […]
