A Few of Our Eats

Blueberry Crisp--I think I might like this better than blueberry cobbler if that's possible! 
5 or 6 cups fresh blueberries (mine had been picked and frozen)
1 T white sugar
1 cup AP flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a separate large bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cut in butter until crumbly. Press half of mixture in the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Cover with blueberries. Sprinkle blueberries with white sugar and toss slightly. Sprinkle remaining crumble mixture over the berries.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until fruit is bubbly and topping is golden brown. original recipe from allrecipes
Kielbasa and Veggies
It's exactly what it looks like--browned sausage with a bag of frozen broccoli and fresh tomatoes from our garden--we ate this over seasoned pasta.
Flourless Almond Cookies
I cannot for the life of me find the recipe I used for these amazing cookies--here it is to the best of my memory:
2 1/4 cups of roughly ground almond flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
3 T honey (+ or -)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Heat butter in a saucepan on low heat until melted. Remove from heat and add honey and vanilla. Mix in baking soda and salt. Add almond flour. Shape into balls and cook for 8-11 minutes at 350 degrees.
note: while searching for the recipe, I saw cookies very similar to this made with coconut oil instead of butter. Sounds yummy and good for you. I also saw similar cookies where the recipe added flax seed--this might be worth a try.
Happy cooking and baking!
