Okay, super-short post today. Also, super-easy recipe today.
Here's one more blueberry recipe. I love them so much that I had to squeeze in one more before fall sets in. You can whip up this lovely bread pudding in the wink of an eye--and it'll be gone just as fast! As you can tell from this picture, despite some careful cropping, this was the last bit left in the dish.
