Blueberry Streusel Breakfast Bread

It’s been a loooong while since I’ve been able to post any food recipes. It’s not like I’m not making some homemade peanut butter and chocolate ice cream. Or, my favorite oreo cookie pudding pops. I just haven’t tried anything new lately. It’s not like I’ve done it on purpose.  Life just gets in the way sometimes.

br2 Yep, I’ve been busy. But, that’s no excuse to not make wonderful dishes and then post about them. I’m trying to find balance in my life right now. I’m usually pretty good at that, but lately I just can’t get it together.

Twenty-four hours in a day-can I please have one more?

Now I’ll have you know, I didn’t actually bake this bread. It was given to me by a friend, but it tasted so good I wanted to tell you about it. This is a filling breakfast bread that tastes great toasted and even not toasted. Emily just eats it like it is. No toaster required. She just grabs it and goes. I like it that way as well, but I could stand to eat it toasted and buttered as well.

I managed to get the recipe from my friend for you so you can enjoy this reason-to-go-off-your-diet bread. Bake a loaf and if you invite me over to share it with you, I’ll bring my adorable puppy  for you to cuddle with.

I promise.
