HEAB, you’re turning violet…and having way too much fun with Photoshop Elements.

Yep, it’s true. I cannot stop eating blueberries. It all started when someone mentioned a blueberry lemon cake recipe to me. Jill, was that you? Anyway, I could not get the combo out of my head. Then while reading Eden’s blog, her Cinnamon Raisin Quick Bread caught my attention as cinnamon paired with raisins is another one of my favorite combos. I decided to make the bread but then realized I was lacking all of the ingredients except the baking powder. However, I did have lemons and blueberries. So, I’d like to dedicate the following recipe to my friend Jill and thank Eden for the inspiration.

The bread was crumbly and oh so good, especially when smeared with sweet lemon cream cheese, but more about that in another post. I baked it a regular loaf pan, but I think a mini loaf pan would work better. CD and I finished off the entire loaf in one day, and the next morning I woke up with lemons and blueberries still on the brain. So, I made blueberry oat bran topped with more of the lemon cream cheese.

Oat bran cooked in water with a handful of fresh blueberries stirred in at the end.

What’s your favorite combo these days?

P.S. I’m leaving the comments on my Reader Appreciation Giveaway post open through tomorrow, Wednesday, June 8, and I’ll announce the winner on Thursday.
