Hostess this week was Heide of http://chezzero.blogspot.com/
I have to let you all in on a secret this week. I had to cheat a bit on this one. Just a bit. I did not let it sit overnight in the refrigerator as Ellie says to. Wasn't sure if it would work to just beat it up and toss it in the oven, but that's what I did. Drat those time constraints! But please keep this to yourself. Don't you just love a good secret?
My grocery store did not have fresh blueberries this week. Not sure what was up with that because we eat them every morning with our cereal. So I grabbed a bag of frozen blueberries. Believe me when I say they may be fine for cooking with them, but even thawed they did nothing for our cereal. Too mushy for me! But the size of the blueberries was amazing. Made me wonder where are these giant blueberries when you buy fresh ones? The ones I buy are tiny like little peas. These were mammoth.
I sort of halved this recipe so I was not sure how long to cook it. Ellie said 50-60 minutes and that seemed like a long time to me. I think mine cooked for 40 minutes and I called it done. Chandler loved it and said it reminded him of bread pudding.
Here's a little funny. At least it was funny to me. I was home today because. . well anyway. . .I was watching one of the "famous" chefs on television and when she took her dish out of the oven I noticed her stovetop was, shall we say less than clean? I'm talking some major grease baked on there. Surely these tv people have someone to clean up after them? Just evidence I guess that she is truly a dedicated cook and is actually using that stove!! I loved it and I think I love her all the more for it.
If you click on Heide's link above, I'm sure you will find the recipe for this luscious breakfast treat. Or you can find it in Ellie's So Easy cookbook. Or, you can google it and get it that way. Great pick Heide!
