With an abundance of Jersey blueberries in the supermarkets now, I thought it would be great to include an easy recipe for a yummy pie. I regret asking readers to turn on their ovens to bake – although it is just for a short while – but you will enjoy when done.
I am sure most families, like ours, is sticking to cooking outdoors and not adding heat to the kitchen with the oven. It is with that in mind, that I am adding a short write up about a great product for barbecues.
As for the promo for hair products, as I look at myself in the mirror and see my out of control frizz, I felt it necessary to share these wonderful helpers to help tame this problem.
Hope everyone is holding up with the intense heat and drinking lots of water. This is so important. Until next time. BMC

Put the blueberries and ingredients into a small saucepan that is sprayed with a non-stick spray like Pam. Simmer over low flame for a few minutes until the blueberries start to pop. Pour mixture into pie shell and bake according to directions on the piecrust (about 25 minutes). Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if eating dairy; serve as is with meat.
