blueberry pie // shortbread crust + oat crumble

Blueberry Pie // Shortbread Crust + Oat Crumble
Blueberries are in Season- yeaaaaaaah! We have the sweetest little blueberry stand right down the the street from us - the blueberries are on the honor system and grown by a little old couple, the Murphys. We like to think the Murphy's eat Blueberries all day everyday. I know Justin and I would if we could. 

During the short month's the blueberries are in Season we load up. Not a day goes by that we don't stop at the stand. We freeze as many as we can fit in the freeze for the winter pancakes,  make blueberry jam for preserving and eat them by the handful.

I made this pie with the first of the season blueberries from the Murphy's - it didn't disappoint.

shortbread cookies // coconut + macadamias

Coconut Macadamia Nut Cookies

These cookies, THESE cookies are so freakin' amazing. Before posting I ended up testing this recipe about 5 times and they were spot on 4 out of 5 times.....the first time around, I attempted a gluten free version and that was a total fail, it didn't even make it to the freezer phase of the recipe. Then I moved onto the good ol' all purpose flour and there was not turning back- they were perfect.

triple nut butter // pecans, cashews + almonds

Triple Nut Butter

We loooooove our nut butters - no lie. Between Justin, Brody and I we probably go through about a jar a week. Overnight oats, farina, celery and peanut butter, waffles and nut butter, english muffins with nut butter and banana...the list goes on and on.

When I have the motivation I like to make my own. It is super simple, and every time I whip up a batch I think to myself why on earth I don't do this more often.

A quick roast and blend and you have yourself a nut butter. A nut butter where you control the ingredients, texture and amount.

kitchen IQ + So Delicious Brunch! // Banana Pancakes

Banana Pancakes // Brunch with Kitchen IQ + So Delicious
At our house breakfast or brunch is a favorite. For us, a breakfast that includes a Mimosa automatically becomes Brunch.

This post combines my two favorite things: Banana Pancakes + Mimosas.  
This my friends, is the perfect start to any Sunday.

Who actually needs an excuse to day drink, I didn't think so.
