on Friday, May 11, 2012.

Visit the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival to see five Georgia culinary stars — blueberries, peaches, pecans, Vidalia® Onions and watermelons — are the magic ingredients in the tasty creations of select chefs scheduled to debut at the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival’s “Farm Fresh” Tasting Tent Trail, May 10 through 13, 2012.

Georgia Blueberry Green Tea

It’s the season for Georgia blueberries!  My family uses them in lots of dishes and drinks to get our fill while those sweet little berries are so readily available.

Last week, I shared how my son, Judah, enjoys his blueberries in a Georgia Blueberry Banana Smoothie.  This week, I’ll share one of my favorite ways to wind down in the evenings with Georgia Blueberry Green Tea.

My son, Judah, and I love to do projects together (or as he calls them “pwa-jicts”).  Sometimes our projects are artsy-craftsy type things with lots of finger paints, stickers, and glue, but more often than not, our “pwa-jicts” end up in the kitchen.  We love to cook, bake and create new treats and snacks.  Sometimes, we make extra snacks to share with our friends or extended family and we get the added fun of hand-delivering our goodies.

It’s blueberry pickin’ weather!

It’s blueberry pickin’ weather! The blueberries are ripe, so its time to seek out Georgia Blueberries and stock up - whether that’s at a local farmer’s market or your local supermarket. For me, this time of year means going to our local blueberry farm here in Georgia and picking bucketsful to bring home.

Thanks to the early Spring we’ve been having, its blueberry season in Georgia! Last year my family planted blueberry bushes in front of our house. We needed some landscaping and figured, why waste hard work and resources on plants you can’t eat! We decided on blueberry bushes since they grow well in our area and because my son absolutely loves them! They are a great healthy, packable snack for hungry little toddlers on the go!
