~Farmhouse Baking~

I truly enjoy baking for my family especially when I find an easy recipe like Blueberry Crumb Cake by the Pioneer Woman.  You really can't go wrong with one of Ree's recipes...this one in particular!  I found it on Pinterest and have added it at the end of this post if you are interested in trying it for yourself.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I recently received some wonderful wood utensils from Polder's Old World Kitchen like this Best All-Purpose Spoon which is perfect for mixing up the batter for this recipe.  It's handmade from Beech wood and signed.  I encourage you to check out their site and see all they have to offer and at the end of this post one of my readers has a chance to win a $350 gift card to their store.  

The open floor plan of my farmhouse kitchen makes it easy for baking and the table that doubles as an island is particularly useful.  I will always cherish sitting opposite my daughter frosting sugar cookies last Valentine's Day and dyeing Easter eggs over the years here as well. 

Easy access to supplies makes baking more enjoyable like these glass canisters for flour and sugar.  I made these easy chalkboard tags for fun.♥   

Another utensil from Polder's is their Classic Spatula also made from Beech wood which was perfect when my daughter made cookies last week. I'm in love with these items and right now they are offering 35% off any of their sets currently in stock until the end of May.   

Let me know if you try this recipe and what you think.  Hands down one of my family's favorite! 

Blueberry Crumb Cake Prep: 10 mins Level: Easy Cook: 45 mins Serves: 16
