One of my favorite childhood memories is picking blueberries with my family near the shores of Lake Michigan. With our fingers stained a rich purple, and our buckets heaping, we would talk about my mother’s yummy baking skills and how we were going to enjoy the “fruits” of our labor.
Now that I’m older, I still find these healthy little berries a delicious treat. However, I’ve been transforming my mother’s recipes into healthier snacks for my growing family and creating new traditions near the shores of the gulf coast. Here is my new fresh favorite which my daughter has named, The Prookie!
