Blueberry Buckle


My mom keeps reminding me how many days it's been since I've posted. Yes, I've neglected you,  my cute blog. My computer is getting repaired and may be ready this Saturday. I am using a laptop from circa '98 and dang (my kid reads this blog so it has to be G-rated)is it SLOW! My darling hubby swore he would clean it up and it would be fine. He didn't believe our computer guy when he said "It's time to get another laptop. These Dells last 3-5 yrs tops." He is one stubborn Italian. Computer guy was right (gasp). I cracked and finally downloaded some photos to this dinosaur so you guys could get busy baking something new and yummy! Because we have been busy baking. I have to do some catching up. First on the list is this Blueberry Buckle that I saw on http://www.smithbites.com/. I follow @smithbites on Twitter and saw her tweet about this Buckle. Maybe it was her mouth watering photos and maybe it was because I had a fresh jumbo container of blueberries from Costco...but we had to make that Buckle FAST. And you will too. Don't hesitate. My daughter worked on mixing  the butter with the sugar and made the crumble topping. She also did the main photo above. I love all the delicious time we have spent baking together this summer. Precious baking moments.
