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.

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Six Sentence Story: Burst

The moment the church organist started playing the introduction to the hymn, the precocious toddler girl stood up on the pew. Music just moved her, and she was doubly excited when she realized she recognized the tune. Though everyone around her was opening a hymnal and finding the right page, that was unnecessary for her. 
First of all, she couldn't read, but second, even if she could read, she didn't need the words; they were etched into her memory. Finally, the organist finished the introduction and the chorister signaled the congregation to begin, but while the rest of the church-goers sang, "Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing," the sweet little girl belted out, "Go tell Aunt Rhody." By the time she got to the line about the old grey goose being dead, all decorum was lost as those around her burst out laughing.
