I’ve had this recipe up my sleeve for a little while now, so I’m super excited to finally share it.
Homemade granola has been a favorite thing of mine for ages, but I’d never really ventured into making homemade granola bars until I started whipping up these bad boys. Why, oh why did I wait so long? Rhetorical question – I’m not really sure. But I am definitely happy I finally started.
Say what? It’s Pancake Day?! That screeching sound you hear would be the brakes I just put on my grilled pizza post, the one I told you yesterday that I was going to share today. I’ll save that one for tomorrow. Today, I must observe Pancake Day. Tomorrow will be about the pizza.
I hope that’s okay. Pancakes are always okay though, right?!
It’s blueberry season! Hooray! This is the time of year when we head down to the wonderful Mountainview Blueberry Farm to pick a big bucket full of beautiful berries. And then we get home, we realize that we got a ton of blueberries (the act of picking them is strangely addicting), and wonder what in the world to do with them all.
This year, so far I’ve made a huuuge batch of blueberry lime jam. Then I froze a bunch for later on. We’ve enjoyed blueberry pancakes, of course, and I’m thinking about a batch of blueberry muffins. Maybe with cornmeal. Today I’m going to look into making and freezing some blueberry baby food, and yesterday, I made this wonderful drink: fresh blueberry lemonade.
Honestly, I think this lemonade is more like a dessert than a beverage. It’s bursting with gobs of fresh, sweet blueberry flavor – all those pureed blueberries swimming with tart lemon and sugar make for a very special summer drink. Drink/dessert.
I thought I’d go with a “Happy Endings” type recipe for this Friday. These are sweet, easy, and cute … the perfect conclusion to the week.
These two-bite tarts (three if you’re daintier than me) are ideal for entertaining – they’re easy finger food, they look great, and they take – I’m not kidding – not even 10 minutes to make. Taste-wise, the filling is just right. Sour cream, cream cheese, whipping cream, lemon zest, brown sugar, and a little vanilla. It’s the perfect base for those beautiful bursts of blueberries.
It took me awhile to succumb, but I finally have. I have tried – and, as it turns out, love – green smoothies.
