Down East Blueberry Buckle


Yesterday was National Blueberry Picking Day, and we are big fans of blueberries here.  My grandmother used to have 150 blueberry bushes and would sell to the local bakeries and restaurants.   If you came to visit, you were given a bucket and a row and strict instructions on picking.  Roll the berries between your thumb and first finger, but don't take off the blue "frost." Pick one bush clean before moving on.   And heaven help you if you picked a red or white one :)   My dad ended up with a dozen of the bushes in the 80s, and we'll be moving those bushes to our new home this fall.    This year our berries are running a little late, so I stopped by a local farm and picked some up to make this recipe.

I used whole milk instead of 2%, it's what we keep in the house. As I was putting the ingredients together, I kept thinking, "the guys are going to devour this, I really should double it".   Mine did take about 8 minutes past the time range, but I need to test my oven temperature.   If it's still not done and the topping is browning too quickly, tent it with foil.  Thank you so much to Dianne V. for sharing her recipe, next time I will definitely make two pans, this one went too fast.

    1. This was my first one, I love reading about the differences between buckles, crisps, grunts, slumps, cobblers :) I just call them GOOD!

  2. That looks good, Jolene. That's very close to the recipe I make that's called Blueberry Crumb Cake. The ingredient amounts are a little different and I add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the cake part. I love that it's an 8" pan recipe so it's not overwhelming for the 2 of us. Can't wait for blueberry picking around here although I don't know how good it's going to be with all this rain we're having. :(

    1. We have had a few awful rainy days! The bushes at my dad's are coming along slowly. Maybe by monday. A little vanilla is a great addition, or maybe some lemon or orange.

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!

Southern Fried Chicken Strips

  Sometimes I defrost something with a specific meal in mind, and then the weather completely makes me crave something else.   We had a nice sunny warm stretch of weather here in New Hampshire over the weekend.   It was easy to ignore my menu plan of a heavy, creamy chicken and pasta dish for some crispy, golden brown fried chicken. I chose this recipe , and made very minor changes- first, I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic instead of regular garlic powder.   Second, I held the salt out of the flour mixture, I prefer to salt fried foods as they come out of the oil instead.   I also omitted the parmesan cheese, it didn't need it. I don't fry often, so I'm always glad when the recipe turns out to be worth it.  Using tenderloins made for a quick fry, and the crunchy outside stayed put when you cut them with a fork.    There was just the right amount of seasoning for the guys, though I admit I'd have like to have swapped out the paprika for some cayenne pepper.   I l

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

I've been making this recipe for over 5 years now.  My guys saw an advertisement from a pizza chain for a Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie and they asked if I could make one. Since I didn't have an ovenproof skillet or pizza pan at the time, I searched the web for one I could do in a cake pan.    I found this recipe on That's So Yummy and it was perfect since I only had 1 egg. This is a great fix for a chocolate chip cookie craving without making a huge batch, scooping dough and then babysitting cookie sheets! Most often I make it with semisweet chocolate chips, but sometimes I switch it up and and use some of the speciality ones that I can't seem to resist buying, like Sea Salt Caramel. Though the directions say to cool it completely, we like ours warm, topped with a scoop of ice cream, sometimes a drizzle of hot fudge sauce.   Yield: 8 Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Print Recipe With Image Without Image Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake ingredients
