Day 726's dessert
Nearly all of my childhood Fourth of July holidays were spent at my grandparents lake house. There was much swimming, boating, hamburger-eating, and firework-shooting, but also blueberry-picking at a nearby farm. For me (and many Southerners, I'm sure), blueberries and the Fourth of July are one-in-the-same.
Now, my granddad -- Pop -- has a yard-full of blueberry bushes that he offers up to anyone with an empty bucket to fill. The last time I checked, they were nearly in (above photo). I have go-to cobbler recipe, but this year, I think I'm going to branch out a bit. The top contenders are ...
Smitten Kitchen's Blueberry Crumb Bars
Martha Stewart's Blueberry and Buttermilk Tart
Cooking Light's Lemon-Scented Blueberry Cupcakes
How about you? Have any summer memories or blueberry recipes to share?
