Blueberries are the quintessential summertime fruit to me. For as long as I can remember, my parents have had row upon row of blueberry bushes. While I hated picking my daily quota per the summer chore chart as a kid, I certainly didn’t mind stuffing my face with them. It’s hard to get much better than sun-warmed fruit picked at its peak and eaten right away. Except maybe when you turn it into cobbler. This is one of my husband’s favorites, because instead of a traditional cobbler topping, you use cookie dough to top fresh blueberries that have been tossed with a little coriander, lemon juice and sugar. Add a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream and you have summer dessert bliss. I’ll definitely be whipping this up for Father’s Day.
As I’ve mentioned before, Thanksgiving is my favorite food holiday. This is the holiday that I scour my favorite food magazines, scroll through my favorite food blogs and visit numerous websites looking for the perfect new recipe to take to our family get together. We, like so many other families, spend the night together Wednesday night so Thursday morning is literally wall to wall food from the moment we wake up till the moment we go to sleep that night. In years past, Carmi and I have shared some family favorites, exciting new side dishes as well as an entire series on using up those leftovers. This month we will be sharing some delicious breakfast options that don’t take a lot of time or effort but will still wow and impress your family Thanksgiving morning. Of course, if your family is staying for several days, these next few posts would also work perfectly for the weekend after turkey day.
