If you need a little Spring to warm up a cold November day, these sunny little Lemon Blueberry Squares are just the ticket. Light and refreshing, the sweetness of the blueberries contrasts beautifully with the tartness of the lemon. The squares are delicious as is, but the sweet lemon glaze adds a delectable bit of crunch.

I couldn’t find any decent looking fresh blueberries (it isn’t Spring after all), so I used frozen. Tasted just fine, but I strongly recommend using fresh blueberries so that the batter doesn’t get streaked purple like mine.

Chicago based band The Personnel have a new EP out. “Naïve” has all the workings of a rock-out stadium tune. A little bit Imagine Dragons meets Coldplay and Kings Of Leon.

Check out The Personnel on Facebook and Bandcamp, where the band is giving their new EP away for free.
