Summertime means blueberry pie

Lattice Top Blueberry Pie

Oh my.  Oh my my.  Now I have to find a way to say this is blueberry pie without rhyming.  That mostly worked.

I love making blueberry pies.  Although I think they’re delicious, they’re not my favorite of the bunch (that would be lemon meringue, but all things considered? I’m more of a cake girl than a pie girl*).  Although I do love them and they say summer to me.  This summer has been odd, however. Not nearly as hot and humid as summers usually are, and very rainy. Although I have a difficult time complaining about lack of humidity and heat. Especially since it’s SO much easier to make a pie crust in this kind of weather. Continue reading

Bandwagon Buttermilk Blackberry Cake

Blackberry Buttermilk Cake, baked

Between gourmet magazine having a buttermilk raspberry cake, Smitten Kitchen having a version of the cake, Yahaira making the cake, it seems everyone and their mama is making this cake.

Blackberries, ahoy!

So I decided to hop on the bandwagon too.  I was going to do a post about an awesome lemon cake made with rosemary-infused olive oil (seriously! It was good!), but my camera battery was dead and I didn’t have any pictures of the cake before I brought it to the barbeque.  So I’ll do that bad boy later when I can make it and take pictures.

Meyer lemon buttermilk layer cake

Cake cooling

I’ve discussed my passion for lemon cake before.  If not on the blog, which I’ve got to admit I’m too lazy to check, probably in person.  On my birthday, I’ve baked my own lemon cake from box mixes for years, with homemade lemon icing.  Imagine my delight to find a guy whose favorite cake was also lemon cake with lemon icing…  

2 lemons, 4 states

At first, it was whichever cake mix was on sale at the grocery store, then when the foe protein gluten was eliminated from my kitchen, I used the ‘Cause You’re Special (which as a company name? Sigh…) lemon cake mix which was really good.  But I wanted to make a homemade cake.  So I went to Laura’s hibernating food blog to get a starting place.  Because she’s awesome. Continue reading

English Muffins for breakfast

Buttered English Muffins
I love English muffins.  Love them love them love them.  Without gluten in my kitchen, I have a heck of a time trying to figure out what to eat for breakfast that’s not garbage, 97% sugar, and not leftovers from the night before (which I will eat for lunch, more often than not. Who wants to eat the same food for three consecutive meals? Yes, a real first world problem, I realize).

Gluten free brown sugar coffee cake

It’s recipe time again! If I were a good blogger, I’d also have photos. But I’m not. So it goes. Continue reading
