Blueberry Challenge: You have til July 18!

Hi there, blueberry lovers! Just a quick reminder that you have until July 18 to complete the blueberry challenge!

I have already gotten one submission already from my pal Omar Siddique. Pictured is his blueberry buckle. He makes these every year when the blueberries are in season. From Omar:
I made my usual blueberry buckle recipe, it's a firm-textured coffee-cake with a vast quantity of blueberries (about 4 cups), and a crisp streusel top. Pictured here for your viewing pleasure. The in-season berries were a little too juicy and seemed to burst disproportionally (making for a bit of a soggy cake on one side) but pleasing over-all.Recipe is from Cook's Illustrated, berries from
Larriland Farms.
You can see more pics of the buckle here.

Hi Shannon - I made some gingered blueberry oatmeal muffins for the challenge. (Well, really I made them for breakfast... ;) Glade Link Farm still had a ton of blueberries at the West Frederick Market yesterday, so maybe we'll have them for a few weeks yet.
