Well-played, Andy. You are wise AND smart. Probably good-looking, too.


Speaking of good-looking, the blueberry crumble looks great! My apologies to anyone currently headed here for a piece of blueberry crumble. Seems the two pounds I needed for a 9x13" baking pan turned out to be only 8 ounces. I ended up with a shallow, 6" pie plate. *sigh* It smelled great while baking, so we're hoping it's yummy, too. We're waiting for a little more room in our tummies before we dig in.

So far, Cheryl, it looks and smells good. No reason to think it won't taste good too. However, the recipe specifically calls for "fresh blueberries". No mention of frozen. Still, if you want to test drive a small one (I ended up making only 1/4 of a recipe anyway), here is the recipe: Blueberry Crumble Recipe (Extra Blueberries)

Maybe wise and smart. Two out of three ain't bad.

Cheryl, or anyone really, if you make the blueberry crumble be sure to reduce the sugar! I did check the sweetness of the blues, and had already reduced the amount of sugar in the fruit part. I could have cut it back even more and also reduced it in the crumble part. Still, it was goooo-oood.

Thanks, CG. I may try this tomorrow, with the scaled down recipe. Bookmarked it. I just checked my blueberries, they're only a few weeks old and vacuum sealed, so it just might work. I have all the ingredients, even the sliced almonds. Thanks for the sugar tip.

just took a strawberry rhubarb pie out of the oven, looking forward to digging in tomorrow when it's had a chance to cool and set up.

Today I'm baking Red Velvet Cupcakes for sister's birthday. These are her favorite and special birthday request. Love how the house smells when the cupcakes are baking. Reminds me of when our mom would make cupcakes for us and have them as a special treat after school. I miss those days.

Lawdy is that strawberry rhubarb pie delicious! How did I get to 41 years old without trying this pie? We had rhubarb growing wild in our back yard growing up, but I don't remember mom making a pie with it although it's very popular back home. We'd have people from town stop by and ask to pick some we'd always let them because we had plenty!
