Dutch Baby is honestly the easiest throw together brunch I have ever made. I use to be so afraid of them, because they look so pretty and impressive. And yes, they are not for the faint of heart-- I have ruined about 4 or 5 of them before perfecting this recipe. But at least now it's perfect for you guys! This really are to be because, I promised myself when I moved into my new apartment that I would host more friends over, would try to have more brunch/breakfast parties. I'll be honest, I've had 1 in the last 6 months--but hey, I'm trying.

This new apartment is totally dreamy, I mean can you just look at this kitchen! Such a blessing to be able to work and prep in here every day.

Living in New England has truly taught me to appreciate all the seasons. I grew up in California and we didn't have much seasonal change, we went from summer, to a pretend fall (mostly just a breezy night winter), to about 4 weeks of rain, and bam back to spring/summer. Don't get me wrong, it's actually amazing to live there-- but eating seasonally wasn't really a concern growing up. We always had a wide variety of fruits and vegetables all year around. Yes, maybe the apples tasted a bit funny in the summertime and I do remember craving more melons during the summer and oranges during the winter from my Grandpa's orange tree, but I never remember not eating something because it was out of season. For example, we use to eat tomatoes year around in our house and they tasted the same every time. But now, they don't.

Now, I'm forced to eat seasonally and embrace every season as it changes. Truth be told, I actually really like it! It keeps you in touch with local farmers, gets you out there picking your own fruit (only if you want to! which I highly recommend), and it keeps you creative. Just think, when have you ever brought home 1.5 lbs of blueberries for <$15-- the answer is never. Even if you buy those half pint clam shells at the store they run you a minimum of $3. Trust me, picking your own is often times very cost effective and if you have little kiddos it's is a great way to spend the day outside and knowing exactly where your food came from! So now that blueberry season has come in full swing and you can find some local farms to pick your own berries, it's only appropriate that the blueberry dutch baby was born.
