With July just around the corner, my food thoughts begin to turn to fresh blueberries. We are fortunate to live in an area that is brimming with fresh produce, farmers markets, and pick-your-own farms. One of our favorite stops is a local, organic blueberry farm. Not only is the price amazing, but the blueberries, picked fresh from the bush, are amazing as well.
I’ve never been a big fan of desserts. I do love, I mean love, cookies, but desserts such as cakes, pies, and pastries, really do little for me.
However, (isn’t there almost always ‘however’), I do have a weakness for cheesecake bars. If you’ve never tried any one of the gazillion variations on cheesecake bars, well, you must. The base crust is topped with a simple cheesecake filling, then finished with crumbs….huge, sweet, delicious crumbs. Everything is baked to perfection, then chilled. For me, these are the perfect dessert.
