Susan Williams and Blueberry Crisp

From the moment Susan Williams and I met I knew I had found a new soul sister. Susan is a Nashville blogger and blogs at ThatSusanWilliams.

Beneath her pretty picture on her blog the caption reads, “She’s the friend you go to when you want to hear a great story, or when you need an incredibly delicious recipe, or when your spirit needs a little encouragement.”

And that’s so true!

Susan and I met a few years ago and when we both realized we had relatives from a teeny-tiny place (you have to take a ferry to get there) called Turkey Neck Bend in Kentucky, we knew we just had to be related. Since then we have shared a room at a blog conference in Atlanta and on the way there and back (a 5 hour drive from her house) we attempted to solve the problems of the world.

FYI- Lindsey Williams, Susan’s husband, took these photos!

A week or so ago Susan and her husband came up to visit with me and help pick some blueberries on our farm. If you are any where near southern Kentucky you need to come partake of some of the best berries in the world! Look us up at 

Susan and I talked and picked, and picked and talked, and at the end of the day we still hadn’t solved all the problems of the world but we had become even closer friends.

Chandler picking berries

We had some very good assistants while picking. Chandler (my grandson) came and brought his bucket to help! He didn’t stay long but we enjoyed watching him run around the field.

Susan took her berries home and this week she shared a delicious recipe for Blueberry Crisp over on Midlife Boulevard that I thought you might like. Be sure to check it out and comment there so Susan will know if you are going to try her recipe.

And if you have a few minutes, make sure you visit her blog. I know you will come to love Susan just as much as I do.

As for the blueberries, I’m still picking. We have four different varieties and they mature at different times. June and July are busy months for blueberry growers, but boy oh boy are those berries delicious!

Are you a blueberry fan? What’s your favorite way to eat them?
