This Week: National Blueberry Pie, Oatmeal Cookie & Raisin Days

Perfect Match Blueberry Lemon Pie recipe

I love food holidays. There is a food holiday for everything, and it gives me direction on what to eat and cook. Today for instance, is National Blueberry Pie day, so I promptly started searching for blueberry pie-ish recipes. I found this Perfect Match Blueberry Lemon Pie; it would be even better with a little Meyer lemon added.

Red, White and Blueberry Torte recipe

Next I found this Red, White and Blueberry Torte, which adds a chocolatey cake-like crust and more berries. Another great option for Blueberry Pie day. And if you really want something different, try these Whole-Wheat Pumpkin Blueberry Pancakes or Corn Blueberry Muffins.

Oatmeal Crunch Cookies recipe

Saturday April 30 is Oatmeal Cookie day, which means cookies for breakfast. I just love oatmeal cookies with coffee and what better way to eat oatmeal? This Oatmeal Crunch Cookies recipe is great for an after-Easter treat: something to do with that leftover Easter candy. Or check out the rest of our oatmeal cookie recipes.

Pork Chops in Tomato Raisin Sauce recipe

Saturday is also National Raisin Day. There are many ways to use raisins, especially if they are chocolate-covered. But, I think I’ll try this recipe for Pork Chops in Tomato Raisin Sauce for something savory.

Chocolate Chocolate Raisinets Cookies recipe

Then, for a real chocolate-covered treat, I’ll try these Chocolate Chocolate Raisinets Cookies. Baking cocoa plus chocolate-covered raisins in this recipe really doubles the fun!
