Want a fun and easy way to make Saturday morning pancakes?  Pull out that cast iron skillet and whip up a batch of these Lemon Blueberry Skillet Pancakes!We love blueberries.  Well, to be honest, we love all berries…but blueberries are a particular favorite around here.  In fact, one of the first things we did after moving into our new house is plant several varieties of blueberry bushes along the back fence.  It took a couple of years, but those bushes are pretty darned happy now.  Every summer, I’m out there in the backyard fighting the chipmunks and birds for berries…but I wouldn’t have it any other way!Continue Reading »

Grab some fresh berries and serve them up a slice of this  light and airy Hazelnut Angel Food Cake!I’ve always loved berries.  It doesn’t matter what kind of berry.  I don’t discriminate.  Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries.  You name it, chances are I love it.  (More accurately, chances are I’ll take it and turn it into a berry cobbler!)

When my wife and I moved into our first house in Atlanta, we planted a sizable garden along the sunny side of the house.  Thanks to the wonderful heat and humidity in the South, we pretty much just tossed some seeds on the ground and ended up with a pretty impressive garden.  We had more tomatoes than we knew what to do with…literally.  I remember eating bruschetta topped with fresh tomatoes for dinner on more than one occasion.  We gave away bags and bags of tomatoes.  And we still had more!  Unfortunately, our blueberries and blackberries were a different story.Continue Reading »
