blueberry dutch baby

I have been so internet MIA lately. Normally I am always updated on twitter, checking everyone's blogs daily and taking photos for posts. But this past week I went on twitter maybe once or twice, hadn't even gone on my computer, only checking email on my iphone, and barely taking any photos. Bad week for blogging, good week for actually having a personal life! 

I made this Dutch Baby one weekend for breakfast, because of some extra blueberries that we had left in our fridge. A simple recipe of just whisking a few basic pantry staples together to make one of the best 'pancakes' I have ever had. 
It was fluffy yet crispy, light but full of flavor. Sprinkle any kind of berries of small chunks of fruit on it to make one of your own. The batter of the dutch baby is in itself not sweet, but once you put that first dusting of powdered sugar, it instantly melts into the surface. Making a perfect breakfast or brunch staple. 
This weekend me and my boyfriend were on the quest to find Halloween costumes. We set out Monday to search out the local costume stores, malls, shopping centers, anywhere we could think of to find an outfit. We both got a few things, but of course nothing at all that was for costumes. Him a new fancy jacket and a shirt, me a few dresses and the most ridiculous shirt saying 'FREE WHEEZY' from the clearance bin at the mall. The minute he pointed it out to me, knowing my obsession with all things Lil Wayne, I started jumping up and down. Throwing it on immediately over my clothes. So ecstatic about a shirt that looks quite absurd on a tiny blonde girl. But I love it now and while on a break at work, an older woman saw me wearing the shirt and yelled to me 'Lil Wayne!!!' then just smiled and walked away. Most epic shirt yet.

Breeanna @ a brilliant melody said...

I made this on Sunday and it turned out pretty good. When I took mine out from the oven it was very light and puffy, but then after a few minutes it started to shrink, so it didn't look as pretty as yours, but my husband really loved it! Thanks!
