  1. Delicious blueberry treat! DH loves it, and he is not easy to please where his blueberries are concerned. Used frozen berries which we did thaw. I used a 7 x 11 inch dish, and it was fine---cooked in the same time. The berries surprised me and ended up on the bottom. Thanks for posting.


I love trying new recipies and have a 17 year old and a husband that will try anything once. Even my Mom will try just about anything and will help cook once in a while. I usually make my mom do a marathon cookie bake during the holidays. She groans but I think she really likes it. I grew up in Florida and moved to North Carolina 14 years ago. I love the beauty of the mountains and the seasons but small town living can be both a little boring and joyous at times. The seasons let you cook different foods; stews and casseroles become popular during the cold weather months and of course lighter dishes during the summer.
