A round up of wild Maine blueberry recipes

From the blog archives I give you my round up of Wild Maine BlueBerry recipes - I haven't done a new recipe yet this year as I have been painting blueberries for the last couple of weeks and am in the middle of uploading them to my Print on Demand online shops - so that will be rolled out in the next blogpost here at PatternPatisserie.

Last years lovelieness - Summer into Autumn Pudding with apples and blueberries instead of the usual strawberry/blackberry/raspberry combination. 

Blueberry Cream Cheese Tart - buttery crust, cream cream cheese filling, blueberry jelly atop - sigh!!

I don't know of many desserts/puddings that wouldn't be enhanced by the addition of sticky toffee pudding sauce!
Blueberry and Apple Charlotte made with solar baked bread!

Blueberry Pavlova - Blueberry curd in a meringue nest with whipped cream - swoon

The Maine Blueberry Harvest is drawing to a close and hopefully I'll get around to a new blueberry recipe before they are all gone - too short a season methinks! Here are some lovely pics from this years crop in the field:

 Such a pretty fruit that goes through many colour stages before the final beauteous blue bloom.

May I ask you to vote for my Twirling Pink Cupcakes design?

Hello Friends! This week I entered my "Twirling Pink Cupcakes" textile design into this week's Spoonflower challenge called "After School Snacks"

Would you please do me the honour of voting for me?
It may take a minute or two - the images are shuffled for each voter so I can't say where the image will be when you click through - no logging in involved!

Thanks so much in advance for your vote - most humbly appreciated by yours truly :)

Here's a LINK to my blogpost, ever so long ago, about the creation of my Pink Cupcake illustration

Here's a pic of the start of my next Spoonflower competition entry for the Fabric8 contest this year - Wild Maine Blueberries - which, by the way, are being harvested right now - YUM!!
