Blueberry Bonanza

Did you know July is national blueberry month?
True story.
So before the month gets away from us,
and while they're essentially giving away these healthy gems at the grocers,
I figured we'd better talk blueberries.

I recently made this blueberry muffin bread with streusel topping.
Tastes like a giant muffin top.  Holla! 
It's made with whole wheat flour, so it's sort of healthy.  Right??

And as soon as it isn't 90+ degrees out,
I want to make this baked blueberry oatmeal.

But since it remains hotter than Hades,
I will stick to things like...

Blueberry Smoothies

This fresh blueberry, mango, & cucumber salsa over grilled fish or chicken.
(Thank you, Daphne Oz.)

And frozen blueberries - a perennial favorite!
(For a new twist, I may have to try this idea.)

These cream cheese-based Blueberry Walnut Bars I whipped up last summer
were awfully tasty as well and need to be re-created STAT.

Oh, and these Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes look just terrible don't they?

What are your favorite blueberry recipes?
Pie?  Muffins?  Plain, by the handfuls?
Do share!

P.S.  Stock up and use them now...or freeze them for later!

P.P.S.  I used to not care for blueberries, but now cannot imagine a summer without them!  If you're in the same boat, please given them a second chance - try eating them frozen on a hot day OR in any of these delicious recipes.  You may be pleasantly surprised!
