My Blueberry Delight

How sweet...
     Hiya Everyone!!! Wow, it's been so long since I've blogged that I almost forgot I owned one! I've been so consumed with work and fixing up the apartment that I've been so neglectful.

Well that's all about to come to an end! With the help of my awesome aunt, I now have a digital camera to finally show you all my little adventures and creations. Today we'll start with my love for blueberries and their partnership with biscuits.
     It all started one day about 4 or 5 years ago, I was in my local grocery store shopping when I came upon a can of rolled blueberry biscuits. I was delighted when I took my first bite, sweet and so blueberry!!!

But sadly my sweet blueberry companions were discontinued. I searched other stores but no my loves were not to be found, there was nothing more for me to do but mourn their lost. See in those days I cooked, but nothing too fancy, so it never acquired to me to just bake my own. Boy am I happy that I've out grown that!!

I searched for the perfect recipe and went to work!! But that first attempt was a major disaster, plus afterwards I lost my perfect recipe. So after becoming a little discouraged, a stroll threw the farmer's market renewed my quest! Though I lost my perfect recipe, I pieced a few things together from other recipes and went to work!

(Aww... baking mix, sugar, milk, lemon peelings, orange peeling and of course, BLUEBERRIES)

(It all goes a long way)

(I'm still getting the hang of rolling out doughs, but practice makes perfect)

(My grammie was kind enough to let me use her biscuit cutter, she's had it for years & years)
