i'm currently reading the omnivore's dilemma and while i still eat doritos when i want to – i have defintely been more aware of food since we ate all local last september.

as part of this i get a little obsessed over those foods that are so good for your body – like blueberries.

so tonight to combine good food and dessert i made blueberry buckle – it was on good eats with alton brown last night on the food network.

i love alton brown. he talks about the why's of cooking and baking not just the how to. i know i don't take it all in, but i'd like to think that some of it goes in and maybe helps down the road.

p.s. the buckle was excellent!
