Best Blueberry Crunch Recipe

Everyone loves a “crunch” dessert. Or, if you’re a muffin fan, I was just chatting with my friend, Bakerella, the other day–checking in on each other. She has a fantastic Better Morning Blueberry Muffins recipe you’ve got to try!

Blueberry Dump Cake

Some call them “dump cakes,” and our family favorite has always been this Cherry Crunch Dessert. That is … up until now :)

When my sisters came to visit, we rode bikes, shopped, swapped out clothing (like we always do), and ate lots of good food. We always talk about new recipes, and my oldest sis gave me a new spin on one of her favorite recipes. So today I’m sharing a delicious Best Blueberry Crunch Recipe. Let’s just say it’s amazing, and so good served warm with vanilla ice cream.

When I think about what my mom taught us girls, it was about taking chances and risks when practicing hospitality.

Taking risks and practicing hospitality

Because if you don’t, you never include other people in your home, and you miss out on a lot.

Yes, it takes risk to make a dinner invite–what if they say no?

And sometimes with cooking, you take a chance that the recipe will turn out–what if it’s a flop?

Unless you’ve made it before, or it’s a family favorite, sometimes it’s a luxury to be able to “master” a menu in time for guests.

So hospitality takes risk, on many levels. Our mom wasn’t perfect, but she was gracious when she made mistakes. So we learned from her.

Joanna Gaines quote

I recently saw this quote from Joanna Gaines, and I love it so.

“The world needs risk takers. The truth seekers and status quo resisters. Who ask the questions they really want to know. Who confidently pursue what is right even when it isn’t popular. No facades. No half truths. No compromises. The life lovers and slow-song-along-in-the kitchen dancers. Who smile at every stranger and wear their hearts on their sleeves. Who uphold authenticity time and again. No distance. No armor. No walls. The course changers and path makers. Who risk it all to follow their hearts and lead others to new places. Who steadily move forward without always naming the challenges to overcome. No compass. No safety net. No way to know where the road will go. The world needs risk takers. Like you and me. Who pave the way for others to follow. Or who tiptoe past their comfort zones to say yes when they could have said no. Every day in big and small ways, we all wake up and push toward the unknown. Never rising out of new waters the same as we were before.” – Joanna Gaines

So for today, if you’re a reluctant entertainer, start small.
