Looking for a delicious, easy, yet impressive dessert recipe for your next dinner party? After setting the table, sprucing up the place, preparing appetizers and dinner, do you run out of steam to make that fancy dessert from Bon Appetit magazine? Well, I’ve got the perfect dessert recipe….Blueberry Crisp. This recipe has been duplicated by Martha Stewart and dozens of bloggers but this is the simplest recipe ever. My Aunt Rosemary discovered this recipe which was originally printed in Bon Appetit magazine in the mid-1970’s.

Aunt Rosemary was a very energetic, beautiful and independent woman, born during the roaring twenties, grew up during the depression, married her sweetheart after WWII and had three children. She always looked neat as a pin, loved fashion, baking, golfing and most importantly, her family. My earliest memory is at age 4 in the ocean with her holding me as she jumped the waves at Fire Island. I remember the brightly-colored flowers on her swim cap and feeling safe in her arms.

She was a special aunt to my brothers and cousins too. I felt extra lucky to have her as my Godmother. My younger brother often speaks of fun times golfing with her during his teen years. Even with three children of her own, Aunt Rosemary made each and every one of her nieces and nephews feel special. I don’t know how she did it but she just had a way about her. We lost her too soon but she continues to live on in our hearts and in our memories.
