Blueberry Pastry Delights

Blueberry Pastry Delights

No berry makes my heart pitter-patter quite like the blueberry!  Little bites of happiness, I pop these blue treats like they’re M&M’s!

Blueberry Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls

I first had the illustrious “Blueberry Delights” at Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach. My friend Christian managed the hotel and my friend Greg was the chef.  I loved frequenting their brunch when I lived in LA… mainly for these little treats!

They may just be “Blueberry Pastries” to others, but to me they will always be “Blueberry Delights”!
