By • March 10, 2011 • 0 Comments



Author Notes: I was craving a blueberry pie and ended up with a fabulous blueberry tart! Then trying to combine what is good for you, dark berries, nuts, and juice with what is fun to eat.. I put together this recipe for a blueberry tart.
To test the recipe I brought it to my meeting and shared it with families who are struggling with family members who are suffering with mental illness. Thus...the title....Insanely Blueberry Tart!
