Summer Comfort Food: Blueberry Bread


I have so much going on this week, and it’s the kid’s last week before school starts. I was craving something blueberry, yet comforting, and came up with this recipe for Blueberry Bread. My daughter, Leigh, helped me prepare it, and we decided to add cinnamon and orange zest which actually bumped up the flavor nicely. I tweeted and put a Facebook message while it was cooking in the oven (smelled heavenly), and I received incredible responses. So, here it is!
