I know not all daughter-in-laws are close to their in-laws. In fact, some have really unbearable situations and my heart truly goes out to those people.

Luckily I was blessed enough to find a guy after I had known his parents for a while. I was good friends with Mike’s sister because we played volleyball in college together before I ever even met Mike. My parents and Mike’s parents would sit next to each other at our college games and became pretty close friends. I even started calling his parents mom and dad!

Junior year Mike started woo me and had our now pastor praying for me … specifically that I would “realize he was the best thing that would ever happen to me.” It still cracks me up that he actually told our pastor that! AND that our pastor was praying that! A couple months went by we got engaged and then married! And you know what… he IS the best thing that ever happened to me!

After we got married and moved down to Texas we tried to “woo” our family members to follow suit. Everything is bigger and better in Texas AND we are there .. those were our selling points. My brother, Mike’s brother, Mike’s sister, and his parents all succumbed to our convincing ways. Muahhhahaaa

With my parents not being in town I spent alot of time with Mike’s because they are 10 minutes down the road from us. Mike’s brother has since moved away and so has his sister but when everybody is back in town we usually like to go out for dinner at least once as a family!

Trying to wrangle the kids at a restaurant more than that can be a little exhausting! πŸ™‚

The most recent time we went to a place called Local Pour. OMG! LOVED the place. The inside of it was very rustic industrial looking and it has TV’s all over the place almost like a sports bar. {which meant Mike loved it as well :)} It has a huge patio right on the lake with fun large industrial bulbs that light up when it turns to dusk.

The bar serves wine and beer that are all locally made in Texas.. hence the name local pour. πŸ™‚ hehe But the food, ya’ll the food was awesome! They have these crab stuffed mushrooms covered in cheese that will make your mouth water upon first sight. The burger and sandwiches are creative and pack a killer punch of flavor.

But hands down my favorite there was the Mango Ginger Crisp they had which is saying alot because I’m a chocolate lover at heart. And that my friends is what inspired today’s recipe! Clearly from the picture below you can see that even Cason couldn’t wait to dive his spoon into that skillet!

This Ginger Blueberry Crisp is filled with loads of fresh blueberries then mixed with spicy fresh ginger and a hint of salt .
The crisp on top is made with crunchy pecans, regular oats, and a slight hint of cinnamon.

Your house will be permeated with the smell of Ginger Blueberry Crisp while its baking and as soon as you open the oven to pull it out it will take everything you have to refrain from diving in. Just remember, its HOT. Even though the slightly browned crisp topping and bubbling over blueberry filling look appetizing – put down the spoon.

Wait. Wait. Wait. Then just when you think you can’t take it anymore… aka 5 minutes later.

Top it with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or just eat it plain and get ready to be in heaven! Your welcome, now go make this!
