Chef Kate is right...this is a "10 star" recipe, especially with peaches fresh from the tree and served with vanilla frozen yogurt. Ellie Krieger has a similar recipe using cherries instead of blueberries.

This recipe was recommended by Chef #174096. I served it atop Praline Biscuits for a wonderful brunch item. The two recipes work wonderfully well together. Thanks for sharing!

I just "lifted" the blueberry portion of this recipe because I wanted a blueberry sauce to pour over a store bought cake. This was easy and oh so delish-i-ous. I am thinking, next time I will grill some peaches and pour this blueberry sauce over.
