What I’m Making: Sweet and Tangy Blueberry Sauce

Summer’s here and there’s no better time of year to hit the farmer’s market for fresh fruit and veggies.  I tend to stock up weekly on a variety of local and seasonal produce to incorporate into my diet. In the summertime there’s nothing better than topping off a bowl of cereal or yogurt with some fresh seasonal berries for light and satisfying breakfast.  However, sometimes I over do it and buy more than I can eat before they start getting mushy. I decided, rather than freezing my extra blueberries, to make them into a blueberry sauce that I could use as a topping and would extend their shelf-life. I adapted this recipe from Joy of Baking by adding a little extra lemon, sugar, and cornstarch for a thicker, tangier sauce. The sauce is the perfect accompaniment to vanilla ice cream, cheesecake, pancakes, waffles, or pretty much any sweet treat. Pictured above, I served served the sauce warm over angel food cake and topped it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the perfect summer dessert…or breakfast.

Shopping: Brooklyn Flea Philly

I’ve been a fan of the Brooklyn Flea for years, making the trek to Brooklyn to scour the rows of vendors to find the best antique, vintage and handmade items the Flea has to offer. However, as a Philadelphia resident, the four hour roundtrip commute to New York can be overwhelming, which is why I was overjoyed when I saw an announcement on the Brooklyn Flea webpage that they would be bringing the Brooklyn Flea to Philly this June. Here’s a visual diary of my first trip to the Brooklyn Flea Philly at the Piazza on opening day.
