“Cool autumn weekend treat! I had a lazy Sunday afternoon and wanted to make a healthy treat to eat while watching football. Since I didn't have the more traditional cranberry accompaniment I used blueberries and was pleasantly surprised! My measurements are approximate because I just "eyeballed" my recipe.”
