She writes: "One Sunday not too long ago, my friend Angie and I set out to answer the question of what do two girls do with a great big old pickup truck recently purchased for a scream of a deal for $800? They take it off-road, that's what they do. Or more specifically, we took it down a rutted not-quite-wide-enough-to-qualify-as-one-lane old mining road, lined on both sides by willow branches that screeched down the sides of the truck leaving scores of scratches (oops)." ~ To learn what's at the end of the road, read about Molly's Top-Secret Blueberry Patch

BlogHer food editor Alanna Kellogg learned the 'no picky, no eaty' rule young, picking blueberries with her grandmother, and this time of year, tosses frozen berries into an easy blueberry pie called a blueberry galette from her food column Kitchen Parade.
