Hi there TidyMom readers! It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co. & I’m so thrilled to be here today. I had the pleasure of not only meeting Cheryl at SNAP! Conference but getting some quality one on one time with her too. I can tell you- I had the best time getting to know her & she is every bit as wonderful in person as you see here in her space. I can’t wait for the next time we can catch up in person.

On Kleinworth & Co. I share photography tips, easy projects & a whole lot of recipes. I have a passion for being in the kitchen & an even bigger passion for pretty food pictures. One thing I use a lot of in my recipes is blueberries. We seem to be enjoying a blueberry recipe nearly every week. So I thought it would be great to share our favorite Blueberry Cobbler Bars with you all today.

These are truly simple to make & leave the wonderful smell of baked blueberries drifting through the house. Heaven! 

Blueberries

I love that these can be enjoyed as a treat or over morning coffee.

Of course, I have been known to eat chocolate chip cookies over coffee too. (any excuse)

These are perfect for this time of year because I am usually packing the house with fresh produce. Summer is so great for that. This recipe works well with both fresh or frozen – so take all those summer berries, pack them away & you can enjoy this all year long.

Just look at that buttery crumble topping- so tasty.

This recipe also works well with other berries. Since we are in North Idaho – our all time favorite is to use Huckleberries. I figured they might be hard to come by in other areas – which is why I chose blueberry to share today.
