Thanks for the recipe, Becky. I don't make desserts for us (plenty of WILL power, just no WON'T power!). Next time I need a dessert for company, I'll give it a try.

Don't you hate that when that happens!

I had to laugh at my friend one time. She brought over a 2 layer cake and when she cut it, it was falling apart. She said to me, "what it wrong with this cake?" I looked at it and started to laugh. She left out the frosting between the 2 layers! She didn't realize she did that. Oh well, still tasted the good!

My granddaughter loves those!

The apple crisp was OK. I think I remember fixing better unless my taste buds have changed! LOL!! Here's a link to the recipe. I don't think it would qualify for the Mediterranean Way Cookbook.

I just found Ocean Spray Craisins - dried cranberries infused with blueberry juice. They are a little sweeter than the plain craisins. Different flavor that is for sure!

You're right ELSEEBEE! I forgot about those big Costco bags! I will have to buy some. I had one box in the fridge that needed me to do something with them. I made an apple crisp today that called for blackberries or raspberries with the apples. I didn't have either so I added the box of blueberries with the apples. It's still in the oven baking. I'll let you know how it turns out!

I buy big bags of frozen blueberries at Costco (not too expensive there) and we eat them year-round. When local, fresh berries are in, we eat those and I freeze them if the price is right. I love all kinds of berries, but DH is really only crazy about blueberries, so I try to keep plenty around for him.

I love blueberries. I bought a bush last year and right now it isn't looking too good. Some the branches have died off from the winter. I do have some green ones with small leaves coming through. Hope I get something this year! If not, I will be buying them. My sister usually buys several quarts and freezes them. Maybe I can go in with her this year.

Blueberries are truly a super food! They have a high antioxidant factor which can help prevent cancer. When they're not in season, we eat the bags of frozen ones. (Costco sells them at a great price.)

Thanks Becky for the info. I love fresh blueberries and its hard to get them where I live (PR). If I find them they are very pricey.

When I was a child one of my relative who was a fruit picker took me to pick blueberries. It was my first experience in the country (I was raised in NYC) and eating blueberries. I ate more of the sweet/tart berries than I placed in the baskets. Didn't get paid much, but I surely enjoyed the experience. Gee, thanks for bringing back a good memory.

A new study with blueberries shows they can have a direct effect on white adipose tissue, cutting fat cell numbers and the amount of fat in cells. It lends proof to the notion that diets high in Polyphenols from fruits have multiple benefits to health including weight loss.
