blueberry peach crisp …

August 26, 2011

I had quite a few blueberries I needed to use up the other day, so I decided to make a blueberry crisp.  In the last minute, I decided to use up some of my ripening peaches in the crisp as well, and I absolutely loved them together.
There really isn’t a lot of things better than a nice warm dessert top with a scoop of ice cream, or in this case frozen yogurt.
