  2. Hey, I forgot about that panini. it really looks delicious...hmn.

  3. Blueberries are a favourite this time of year:D

  4. WOW! I came across your site and I truly enjoy it! Wonderful POSTS!!!

  5. Wow that blueberry bread pudding looks awesome, it's never occured ot me to put fruit in bread pudding, but it totally makes sense. Nice choice on using challah too.

    I made the blueberry soup out of the French Laundry cookbook a while ago and love the flavour in a cold soup:-)

  6. Oh baby, I could eat the pants off of each one of those. Blueberry and tarragon is such a lovely pairing idea.

    Btw - my favorite comment on your site, possibly ever: "...Vancouver is a part in Canada state...." teehee!!

  7. maybelles mom:
    Thanks! I had almost forgotten about it too!

    Thanks! =)

    Marc @ NoRecipes:
    Making that bread pudding was just an excuse to make a crisp topping. Hehe. We just happened to have some bread that needed using up.

    Choosy Beggar Tina:
    Yeah, that's a little strange. Last time I heard, Vancouver ("also called Bristish Columbia") has not ceded to the US. ;)

  8. The second annual "UBC Blueberry Fest" is on July 13-16!

    9:00AM to 1:00PM at the UBC Bookstore Plaza (rain or shine).
