Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Blueberry Sour Cream Crisp

I've mentioned before that I sometimes plan entire meals around sour cream.  Yesterday I had a bit of sour cream, and decided to make a dessert with it. (OK, to be honest, we ate it for dinner.  And maybe for breakfast this morning.)



Blueberry Sour Cream Crisp
8 cups blueberries (I used frozen)
1 c. sour cream
1/3 c. steel-cut oats
1/2 t. dried lemon peel

1 c. rolled oats
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. steel-cut oats
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1/2 c. shredded coconut (I used sweetened)
1/2 c. butter, softened

Preheat oven to 375.  Put blueberries in 9 x 13 pan.  Combine sour cream, 1/3 c. steel-cut oats, and dried lemon peel, then stir into the blueberries.  Combine remaining ingredients and place on top of blueberry mixture.  Bake for 40 minutes.   

Do you ever make dessert a meal?  (Please tell me I'm not the only one!)

  2. Dessert for dinner? Um, yes! Sometimes on a summer night when it's just too darn hot to eat even a salad, we've been known to indulge in ice cream for dinner. it's such a neat feeling.

    I also love sour cream and I would eat it off the spoon (OK, I do when nobody's looking) all by itself. This recipe looks great and would certainly be a good way to use up berries that are slightly past their prime. Think regular oats would do just as well as the steel-cut? I know cooking time varies but I don't usually keep steel cut on hand.

    1. You could substitute flour for the steel-cut oats; I used the steel-cut oats as a thickener.

  3. Looks yummy and we have been getting blueberries in our CSA box lately! Yes to the dessert as a meal! Growing up we would always have strawberry shortcakes for dinner on Fridays, during strawberry season of course. This was when I lived in Michigan and my Mom still does it! you are not crazy! If we could get decent strawberries down here I would certainly be tempted.

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful
