Friends, we can’t make time slow down. We can’t hold onto life as it once was, but we have to embrace today. 

This is why I planned and hosted a lovely time together with my sisters and cousin this past weekend, here at Sunriver Resort, where we enjoyed this Newfoundland Blueberry Buckle Recipe for breakfast!

A sister/cousin weekend, or retreat, you may say. On the menu, Angela’s Newfoundland Blueberry Buckle recipe.

This Blueberry Buckle recipe came from our church cookbook, The Finest of the Wheat, and I’m sharing it with you today, along with some great memories from the weekend.

Best Newfoundland Blueberry Buckle Recipe

This is what I love about this recipe:

It feeds a lot and it’s rich and delicious, so if you make a 9×13 pan, you can get 24 small pieces, or 12 large.

You can use frozen blueberries. Which means, most likely, you’ll always have these ingredients on hand. Which is what I love for last-minute, overnight guests.

The holidays are coming, right?

We ate every meal together over the weekend, and cooking dinner together was a blast.

We made our grandmother’s beloved Fleischkuekle Recipe, which we serve with canned beets.

And then we had to have a mini charcuterie for appetizers one night.

We grazed over breakfast with yogurt, granola, and special treats, like this Blueberry Buckle.

The best part about the weekend, other than being together and reminiscing and telling stories, was the gorgeous 70-degree weather. We went on so many bike rides, our tushes were more than sore! ha.

Our youngest cousin hand-stiched 9 tea towels with our grandmother’s writing, with a recipe included. Very special, and a gift we will all cherish!

Our home was cozy-warm (which is why we called it a Cozy Cousin Retreat), and even though it was so cold in the mornings, we snuggled up with coffee and tea and blankets and thick socks.


We went back in time to our grandparents’ farm. So many laughs and memories.

Giving thanks for family

We were there with each other, with our love, security, and connection to one another. Most important was our faith.

We will not waste our lives, nor take for granted the blessing of family.

Giving thanks for the burnt umber leaves falling to the ground, and the golden aspens twinkling in the sun at the end of the day, we said our goodbyes. I was the last one to leave the house, and as I leaned in over the kitchen sink and gazed out toward the trees and mountains, my heart gave a deep sigh.

My heart was tender from the 48 hours spent with these ladies. The past is nothing more than infinite moments. We try to memorize the smiles and lines and wrinkles on each one of our faces, the deep love we felt for each other.

Retreats come and go. Life happens, and we have to move on. One thing we promised one another is that we will do a better job staying in touch, and pray for one another.

  1. Omgosh! This certainly is worth putting in my “keeper” cookbook. Made half that recipe into a 9×9. Baked at 350 for 45 minutes.

  2. How fun! And yummy! When we were in Florida in September, it was so wonderful to be with family. It made me wish we were all a bit closer in proximity instead of on opposite corners of the US.
