Blueberry Delights!

Did you know that July is National Blueberry Month?  Well.. it is!  And today I have some great ideas for using blueberries in your recipes and dishes to celebrate and enjoy!

From Henry Happened, some yummy Blueberry Mojitos… and other patriotic drink ideas too!

Blueberry Hand Pies

This fabulous blueberry hand pie recipe is courtesy of Toronto’s Food & Drink Magazine, a beautiful free magazine handed out at their wine stores.  I’m *so* fortunate to have a dear friend that always picks one of for me – the recipes are divine!

A single serving easy blueberry pie, this hand pie is easy to make using frozen puff pastry.

Peach Blueberry Tart Recipe – Divine!

This incredibly delicious peach blueberry tart has fast become one of my favorite dessert recipes!  You can use frozen fruit or fresh so that it can be made and shared at any time of the year.  If using frozen, do make sure you thaw the fruit prior to putting together.  The first time I made it I overlooked the directions that said to use ‘thawed’ and although still delicious, the fruit needed a bit more cooking.

This recipe and photo comes from the Oct/Nov. 1012 issue of Taste of Home (mine looks almost as good as theirs!).  Easier than a peach blueberry pie because you simply pat the crust into the tart pan, it is every bit as good.
