No gathering is ever a one person show. My friend Kristy and I hosted a dinner together, because it’s just easier when you don’t have to do it all yourself. And friends, I want to tell you about my new book out this year, Big Boards for Families! You can preorder it now!

Best Blueberry Cobbler Recipe

We made a few salads, toasted bread in the oven, and served a summer-fresh Best Blueberry Cobbler Recipe. Perfect for a hot night with vanilla ice cream. [If you really want to serve it right, make my mom’s  Old-Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream recipe.]

Blueberry Cobbler

Truly, sharing the load for a dinner party makes it a lot more fun. When Kristy said, I’ll bring dessert, I knew she was bringing Grandma Roth’s Blueberry Cobbler.

Everyone has a “family” cobbler recipe, right? The church that Kristy and I grew up in has a church cookbook and it’s full of cobbler recipes. Many my mom made, too.

This blueberry cobbler just screams summer!! You can make ahead or serve it warm out of the oven with vanilla ice cream.

Whipped cream is also delish on top!

Ingredients for making blueberry cobbler

All you need is for this cobbler is:

  • Fresh blueberries (but frozen work, too)
  • Butter, sugar, and then usual dry baking ingredients

The secret is the 2 cups of boiling hot water that you pour over the mixture right before baking.

So moist and delish!

It’s also “peach” season so if you love a yummy-almond crust, then try my Wonderful Peach Cobbler or how to make peach cobbler with raspberries!

Our Crossfit ladies came, our common interest being that we all work out together in the same Crossfit gym. These ladies are so dear to my heart.

The beauty of food

But here’s the beauty of food. It connects and binds and makes us laugh and tell our stories. [Table details below: MacKenzie-Childs Enamelware Courtly Check Dinner Plates (affiliate link), orange glasses from Ginger’s Kitchenware (downtown Bend, OR), tablecloth from Target, my husband made me the bench!]

As a hostess, I love to look around the table and see those rich connections made between people we love.
Honestly, friends, why do I host so much?

The people who come into our homes are important. They count. They matter.

Hosting is not what we do, but how we love.

So set out some good food and start inviting and making new friends, or invite some friends who’ve been in your life for years!

Happy hosting!
