Sweet Cream Blueberry Dip

We spent a night last weekend with my sister and her family at their new house.  It was nice to escape the city (and the noisy amateur fireworks blasting off every other minute), and the kids were so happy to run barefoot in the grass.  They love hanging out with their cousin, so much that […]

Blueberry Maple Syrup

It’s no secret that our family loooooves pancakes.  At least one morning a week the kids groggily and hopefully request a warm stack of homemade pancakes for breakfast, and because I love them, too, I am more than willing to oblige.  Some days Chris makes his soon-to-be famous Lemon Pancakes, but most days we rely […]

Yesterday afternoon I offered to bring a dessert to a picnic. The problem? I offered to make it just two hours before the party started! So, I had to think quick and come up with a special treat that could be prepared in a hurry. I searched through my memories of 4th of Julys from […]
