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.

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…

Ten Things of Thankful: So Long, October!

Although the number of good moments in October outnumbered the sad, I'm still thankful it is now November!

November brings:
1. a time change. I'm thankful that mornings will be lighter earlier.
2. John's birthday. I'm thankful for him, and love thinking of ways to make his day special.
3. Drexel's birthday. He will be 7 years old this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for him; he's a good dog. 
4. Thanksgiving. I'm thankful we have a designated day to remember to be thankful.
5. Oldest granddaughter's birthday. She will also be 7 this month. Time passes so quickly! I'm thankful for her; she's a sweet girl.

Other things I'm thankful for this week:
6. Books. I read Educated  and started It's All Relative. Educated is thought-provoking on many levels. I'm looking forward to finishing It's All Relative; I started it in the Baker City Public Library while waiting for our van to be repaired. My copy from Amazon should arrive late…

Ten Things of Thankful: Nearly Christmas Edition

This is a busy time of year, and though it isn't as busy for me as it has been in past years, my to-do list still seems longer than the hours in the days. However, I find that when I spend time to focus on the reason for the season, I can feel the joy of Christmas and the tasks-at-hand fall back into their proper place. This week I had the opportunity to attend some wonderful events, and I'd love to take you along for a virtual tour:

Let's start at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, last Friday night. The Tabernacle Choir joined with the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Bells on Temple Square, along with dancers and guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas, to present a spectacular Christmas concert. Although I couldn't record any of the performance, the following 2-minute video from the church provides an overview:




The last time John and I had attended a Christmas concert by the Tabernacle Choir, they were still holding those conc…
