Only when I’m in Costco, do I think buying 4 pounds of blueberries is a good idea. I have anti-oxidant visions of blueberries on cereal, in pancakes, in muffins, you get the idea.
It’s only after I’m home that I realize it’s only a matter of time before I have a plastic container of rotting blueberries on my hands! So, after eating them with breakfast all week long, I set to work finding a good blueberry recipe.
I settled on Blueberry Crumb Bars from Smitten Kitchen. This recipe is remarkably easy and uses a ton of blueberries!
I love that our house has a lemon tree right outside the kitchen. When a recipe calls for lemon zest or juice, like this one, I can just send the kids outside to pick a fresh lemon. Yeah for southern California lemons! Oh and cute $10 H&M dresses!
This also brings me to another favorite kitchen tool. The Microplane. It makes zesting lemons a breeze. And it does a pretty good job on parmesan cheese too. We feel all fancy like in an Italian restaraunt when we eat pasta with freshly grated parmesan!
I’m a huge fan of kids helping in the kitchen. Yes, it takes a little longer, but it teaches them math skills, fine motor skills, plus hopefully they’ll grow up to love baking.
Here’s the finished product. Yum.
I think I may have to go pick up a flat of peaches next time I’m at Costco. So if you know of a good peach recipe, send it my way!
