  1. Hi Sally! We made the Unbelievable Blueberry French Toast Casserole for Christmas Morning and it was UNBELIEVABLE! So delicious! I love blueberries. 🙂 For Easter, we are trying out your Fruit Pizza for dessert. It looks so light, delicious and fun!

  2. Happy Easter Sally! Making your goat cheese quiche today and the lemon blueberry scones on Easter morning! 

  3. I’m made several of these before and LOVE the lemon blueberry combos! I am a huge fan of your carrot cake and can’t wait to get home to do this new variation with the cheesecake ribbon. {Swoon}. That fruit tart might be calling my name tomorrow morning.

  4. Easter’s come and passed now. It was a (small) feast for 3 at my house! Although I didn’t make those blueberry scones for the occasion, I HAVE made them before and they are divine. We had a simple Guiness beef stew, followed by tons of mini eggs and brownies for dessert. Had big gathering for St. Patrick’s day, so wanted something small. Hope you had a great Easter, Sally!
