    Strawberry Julius
    by Heather Sullivan

    The ultimate mall fruity shake at home! I modified this recipe one day from one i found online. I have sensitive teeth so I don't like ice much anyway. Guaranteed not to give you "slushie headache".

    ingredients:

    1 cup strawberry, sliced
    1/2 cup milk (nonfat/lowfat okay)
    1/2 cup water
    1/4 cup sugar
    2/3 teaspoon vanilla (extract or flavouring to preference)

    directions:

    1. Slice up fresh strawberries until you have enough to fill a one cup measure.
    2. Add to a blender or food processor, or if you only have a stick mixer, just put it in a large pyrex jug.
    3. Add rest of ingredients.
    4. Blend until smooth.
    5. You may want to try this a little bit cooler for summer days, omit the water and add a few ice cubes.
    6. I only leave out the ice cubes because my food processor can't handle hard ice.
    7. Also it does tend to separate if you leave it sitting around for a minute, Don't let this put you off, just stir it up a bit, it tastes the same, just tends to be more frothy at the top then.

    Blueberry Pancakes
    by Sue L

    A favorite. Using fresh blueberries is best, and the smaller the size, the better. Goes great with blueberry syrup; I also recommend a glass of orange juice as I think it pairs well.

    ingredients:

    1 1/4 cups flour
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    2 large eggs
    1 cup buttermilk
    2 tablespoons oil
    1 cup fresh blueberries or thawed frozen blueberries, rinsed and stems removed
    blueberry syrup (see recipe "Syrup for Blueberry Pancakes") (optional)

    directions:

    1. In a mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
    2. In a separate small bowl, beat together eggs, buttermilk, and oil.
    3. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture, mixing just until ingredients are moistened, and still slightly lumpy.
    4. Fold in blueberries.
    5. Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat and lightly coat with oil or shortening.
    6. Add batter about 1/4 cup at a time, but do not crowd.
    7. Cook until bubbles form, and edges are lightly browned, then turn and cook the other side until the bottom side is lightly brown.
    8. Remove to a platter and keep warm till the rest of the pancakes are finished.
    9. Serve with blueberry syrup (see my recipe"Syrup for Blueberry Pancakes") and butter, if desired.
