BLUEBERRY WEEK: Double Blueberry Ice Cream

Double Blueberry Ice CreamIf you’re going to make blueberry ice cream, now is the time. I admit to splurging on fresh blueberries from time to time over the winter . . . sometimes you just need a taste of summer after several weeks of heavy snow. But when a pint goes for $5-$6 dollars in January, as opposed to picking your own for $2 per pound in July, it’s a no-brainer to make all things blueberry this month!

This is the perfect, refreshing blueberry treat for a hot day when you want a blueberry dessert without turning your oven on. Continue reading

BLUEBERRY WEEK: Blueberry Biscuit Coffee Cake

Welcome to Blueberry Week! I’ve never devoted an entire week to one ingredient before, but blueberries have been at their peak in our area and I can’t stop picking/eating them.

Copycat Chick-Fil-A Chicken Nuggets & Sauce

Make your own ChickFilA-style nuggets at home!I always order chicken nuggets at ChickFilA. Yes, I am a creature of habit, but they are also so good that I can’t bring myself to try something new! So imagine my delight at discovering how easy it is to make them at home. The hardest part is cleaning out the deep fryer afterward, but if you use a big stockpot or Dutch oven you can save yourself that trouble.

One of my favorite things about this meal is that I don’t have to coerce/beg/bribe Wendy to eat it. She silently devours all that is on her plate. Total win. Continue reading
