Taste it: Blueberry Buckle

Over the weekend we went blueberry picking. So now you have a bundle of berries and what do you do with them? Make blueberry buckle! What is blueberry buckle you say? It is like a crumble or a grunt or a cobbler or a brown betty...whatever you want to call it, it is delicious. I love this recipe for many reasons. Not only is it easy and yummy but it is also steeped in memories for me. I always makes me think of my "happy place" aka the Little Cottage on Lake Michigan and all of the wonderful people who are still on those shores and those who are no longer there. This recipe originally came from a dear family friend, Mrs. Brewer who lived next door and was always there with a smile and a quippy comment. 

So keep reading for the delightful and easy recipe that always gets cheers in my house and is at its best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
