Blueberry Cornbread Muffins

If you’re a fan of cornbread and cornbread muffins, here’s a spring-and-summery version you can enjoy, made with fresh blueberries! The blueberries give this slightly-sweet made-from-scratch cornbread a great flavor. And the corn kernels help make the muffins good and moist. There’s buttermilk mixed into the batter too, for a little extra zing. What’s not to love about these tender and tasty muffins?

Corn and Blueberry Salad

Sometimes you come across a recipe that sounds so different, you just have to try it! I love all the ingredients in this Corn and Blueberry Salad, but I never would have thought of putting them together myself! What a brilliant idea this salad is…a sweet and savory mix of lots of yummy, healthy ingredients. The sweetness of the corn complements the blueberries…and the red onion, jalapeno, and cilantro give this salad a nice savory punch. And I have to mention the cucumbers, too, that give this salad and side dish a great crunchiness!

Local Blueberry Crisp

Depending on where you live, blueberry season may be here already or getting close. Whether you pick your own blueberries or buy them at the farmers’ market or grocery store, baking with fresh blueberries is the best! I first made this recipe for Local Blueberry Crisp when I did a review of The Freds at Barneys New York Cookbook by Mark Strausman about 3 years ago. Freds at Barneys New York was a luxury dining destination in the Big Apple where you would often find actors, sports figures, fashion designers, and other celebrities enjoying a meal. Mark Strausman was the chef. Unfortunately, when I googled the restaurant recently, I found that it was “permanently closed.” It may have taken a hit during the pandemic, which was a hard time for so many restaurants.

Blueberry-Applesauce Bread

This recipe was a little experiment for me. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but I really liked it! This Blueberry-Applesauce Bread is a great quick bread for summer-into-fall. It has the fresh blueberries of summer combined with fall apple flavor, thanks to the applesauce! It’s a really good, moist bread with not only lots of blueberries, but some chopped pecans added in too. Other things I like about this bread: it rises really nicely when baking and the sweetness is just right-not too sweet, but sweet enough.
