Went Blueberry picking today

Today was blueberry picking day. It's fun to get the kids out of the house and do something together. It saves money when you freeze the blueberries and now to learn from Pinterest all the things I didn't know about blueberries and all the recipes that I will have fun trying to make with them. So let the adventure began.



Every beauty buff knows that blueberries are high in antioxidants. Another bonus benefit in this fruit is the polyphenols which help reduce your chances of heart disease. So you should look for ways to incorporate more berries – lingonberries, strawberries, and raspberries (oh my!) - into your diet. 

Here is a recipe I might have to try:

Easy Blackberry Cobbler

Make the easiest blackberry cobbler ever using fresh berries plus 5 more ingredients. To make it special, top with whipped cream and a mint garnish.

  • Garnish: fresh mint sprig


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Place blackberries in a lightly greased 8-inch square baking dish; sprinkle with lemon juice. Stir together egg, sugar, and flour in a medium bowl until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle over fruit. Drizzle melted butter over topping. Bake at 375° for 35 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired. Garnish with fresh mint sprig, if desired.
  2. For a neat presentation, bake for the same amount of time in 6 (8-oz.) ramekins on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.

Summer reading

I saw that most of my friends on Pinterest were adding and talking about The Hunger Games Books. I found them to be quick read and easy to follow story line in the first 2 book. In the Third book Mockingjay I found it a little hard to read due to graphic out line of the war that was going. I also found some parts of the book hard to read then others. What were your thoughts of the books? If you saw the movie do you feel that it was done tastfully? Thanks for stopping by. Jen

Most of you know and Love it.

In case you didn't:

With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests.

I have treied so many New Things!

I have tried so many new things that I have learned over on Pinterest. I have found that some times I just pin every thing I see on the board knowing I will most likely never find time to try them. I know that if I get on Pinterest late at night all the food looks good and so I Pin away. Then there afternoons when the kids are driving me crazy that I Pin all kids projects but have only used a few ideas.
I figure this will a good way for me to keep track of ideas that I have used from Pinterest. Thanks for stopping by. Would love to hear your thoughts, Jen
