Making Mealtime Meaningful: See How We’re Giving Back with the New 12 Tomatoes Cares Program →

The dog days of summer are accompanied by plenty of delicious seasonal treats. One of the best things about this time of year: fresh blueberries turn up at the local market– and if you’re lucky, in your own backyard. Scoop up a handful for a refreshing snack, or get creative and mix them into all sorts of yummy recipes.

This blueberry cobbler dish is one of our favorites. Served for breakfast or as dessert, it’s a perfect combination of buttery, crumbly goodness and sweet, succulent blueberries. Grab some blueberries and a few simple ingredients from your kitchen, and get ready to enjoy one of late summer’s greatest pleasures.
