Blueberry Yum-Yum

Ohhh my! This recipe came to mind when I was posting the Blueberry Pie Filling recipe. This recipe was given to meal a while back when I lived in NC. A dear lady would always bring this to our church dinners and it never lasted long.

I haven’t made this in several years but I will have to add it to my meal plan soon! (I’m all out of blueberries or I’d make it right now. Continue reading “Blueberry Yum-Yum”

Blueberry Dump Cake

This recipe is so easy! Give it a try and you will see just how easy it is. If you don’t like blueberries then try this Apple Sonker recipe.

Blueberry Pie Filling

This is really yummy and I use it for different recipes… one of which just popped into my head… and I will definitely try to post those recipes as I can. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries for this recipe. This can be poured into a prebaked pie shell also.

This works great as topping for No-Bake Cheesecake with Flavor Variations and for Blueberry Yum-Yum. Continue reading “Blueberry Pie Filling”

Blueberry Oatmeal Bread

I found this recipe a while back but I don’t remember where. I needed to come up with ideas for the blueberries that I had frozen. My kids love this and I normally have to double the recipe to make 2 loaves so everyone can have enough. Continue reading “Blueberry Oatmeal Bread”

Blueberry Syrup (with healthier options)

My kids love this stuff. Serve over waffles, pancakes, or french toast. Top with whipped cream for special occasions.

Note: If you don’t have the glucomannan or xantham gum you can mix 1/3 c. water with 2 T. cornstarch to use as a thickener.) Continue reading “Blueberry Syrup (with healthier options)”

Santa Pancakes

December 6th is St. Nicholas Day. It happened to fall on a Tuesday which is normally our French Toast day but the kids loved this extra special treat. Below are the instructions for how I assembled these today. These did take a little extra time but the look on their faces was well worth it!

These would also work well for Christmas morning! Continue reading “Santa Pancakes”

Easy Pancakes and Waffles

In our house Thursdays are always Pancake Days. Waffles are usually saved for weekends as they take a little bit longer to make. For special occasions top these with Blueberry Syrup and whipped cream.

This will make about 8-10 pancakes and 6-8 waffles. I usually double or triple this recipe to feed my crowd.

(I am not against using mixes either because I know that mornings can be hectic. Our favorite is the Krusteaz brand of pancake and waffle mixes.) Continue reading “Easy Pancakes and Waffles”
