What We’re Eating: Blueberry Crisp (Bread & Wine)

breadandwine 2013-04-23_17-29-03_337

I received the book Bread & Wine, and to be honest, I just thought it was really cool to read a book that some of the bloggers that inspire me were reading and reviewing. Little did I know… this book is a whole lot more than just a book with some stories and some recipes. There are recipes, but it is not exactly your typical cookbook. You can head over to our review blog to read my thoughts on Shauna Niequist’s book BREAD & WINE.

Note: These are all phone photos, so I apologize for the blurriness of the photos.

Below is the account of the girls making Blueberry Crisp, one of the recipes from the book.

Here are the ingredients, from one of the stores that Shauna frequents, Trader Joe’s. And we also frequent it because it is located right next to our church!

I really love this book, and it’s going to be one that I will read over and over again. If you haven’t already, head over to read my review of BREAD & WINE. It will make you want to cook, and throw a dinner party, even if you don’t know how to cook…or throw dinner parties, like me!

  1. After you mentioned reading this while you were in bed sick, I thot, that It must be a pretty goodbook if you wanted to read it while sick! …so I went to my kindle app and got it….looking forward to reading it!

    • Did you start on it yet, Marie? I really enjoyed it. One of the best books I’ve read in a long time. I’m lending it to a friend, and I’m already looking forward to getting it back to try another recipe. Shauna’s stories are very relate-able and she connects well with readers….continuing my review, I guess. :p

  2. Now I’m intrigued by this book! (Not to mention your blueberry crisp.) Will head over to read your review. Thanks for sharing this.

    • lynn, I’m not a huge fan of blueberries, but my hubby is, and my girls like them too, so this was a hit for them. I think I’ll try it with different kinds of berries next time. It’s super easy, and tastes light. Went well with ice cream (something light would be great too). 🙂
