Blueberry Crisp

Good morning friends wanted to share a quick and tasty recipe that I got from, if you love blueberries as much as I do you really need to try this one and its so simple! My entire family loved it. Its wonderful with vanilla ice cream!!
perfect serving just add ice cream! I say this is a perfect serving but most that tried it gave me the comment "thats all"
Simply wonderful!

For the crisp, grab a bowl and add:
2 cups of blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/3 cup of flour
1/2 cup sugar (or to taste), 1/4 tsp cinnamon
mix it all togethor and
Set aside.....

For the crisp, get your food processor, or a bowl and a fork, if you don't have a food processor.  And preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 stick cold butter chopped into pieces
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 tsp salt
Put these ingredients into the bowl of your processor and pulse.
Now take your ramekins (bowls) and place on a baking sheet.  Spoon the blueberry mixture into the ramekins about 1/3 of the way up making sure the flour, sugar and cinnamon get evenly distributed in each ramekin.

Next, take your topping mixture and spoon plenty on top of the blueberries in each ramekin, pop that into your 400 degree oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
I switch up between using the ramekins to a larger serving dish! If it's just us and the kids I use the ramekins, if I'm making it for a get togethor I use my larger serving dish and make more :)))

My Hutch

Hey there I happen to scroll across this solid wood dresser that I thought was perfect for putting togethor a hutch. I have wanted one for quiet sometime now to display all my white dishes, but wasn't about to pay that kinda $ for one :/ #pricey! So, I bought it for 60 bucks and already had the rest of the wood to build the top! Perfect-o! I wanted something different and that's what I ended up with and I was ecstatic :D

Did I mention I dislike sanding????? Wellll if I didn't I do!!!
   After putting the good ol' Dewalt sander to work than we started to put it togethor, yeah I know this is ugly you don't even have to think it or say it amongst yourself :)....I thought the same thing, ha! But I had in mind what I wanted it to look like and it was part of the process, just pure ugliness. I was only hoping the finished piece was gonna look 10x's better

bead board used as the backing purchased from Lowes, molding on the top, and shelving added

added the hardware
Sweet & Simple!!! Just what I wanted :)

Hey there you all!! I hope you're having a wonderful day...It's once again a beautiful day here in Kentucky :)...The sun is shining so brightly although it's cold, it's still a beautiful day. I must say though that I do believe I'm more than ready for spring/summer. I love nature and everything that comes along with it so before we moved from our house into this apt, I took some photos of my garden that I would just love to share with you, as I think the day kinda sets the mood..Hope it makes you all happy, smile, or at least make you think about something wonderful/peaceful going on in your life :) inspired & stay tuned!
