Blueberry Compote

Mmm... breakfast!  If I had a plate like this waiting for me every Monday morning I'd always be in a good mood.  I know a lot of you have tried the recipe I posted earlier this year for Waffles of Insane Greatness.  Well, if you think that's good, take it to the next level with this easy fresh fruit compote.  Oh, and it's good on Buttermilk Pancakes, too.  Since blueberries may not be plentiful at this point in August, keep in mind that this recipe is also great with other berries:  strawberries, raspberries, blackberries...  Hop on over to Potluck and check out my latest post for the recipe.  Your tummy will thank you!

I'm especially grateful for this recipe because E and I just went to a coffee shop (casual, not table service) that was selling fruit-topped Belgian waffles for $10!  I mean, really?  You could feed four people with $10 worth of breakfast ingredients... but I digress.

When I finally stop playing Angry Birds and Words With Friends on my iPhone I'll continue the story of our International Road Trip.  Let me just say, the iPhone is worth all of the hype.  I'm just glad I bought it after I finished my doctoral degree or I would have never got any schoolwork completed.

I'm working with a few people on guest posts and I wanted to throw this out there:  If you'd like to do a guest post on this blog, please email me at  Maybe you'd like to share your favorite recipe, grocery shopping tips, or some helpful diet and nutrition info?  Whatever it is, let me know.

Also, if you have any requests or feedback, email me!  I cook new stuff every week (I just don't always blog about it) and I'd love to take some requests!

I finally got on Twitter, so if you'd like to have more (semi) regular updates from me, please follow me @KeeleyPowell.


  1. How could I have missed "waffles of insane greatness?" I'll be looking at that recipe right away. THe compote sounds like a great breakfast addition.

    I enjoyed the AB and WwithF reference. If Plants vs. Zombies was added to your list, I could have written it. :)

  2. I'm not usually a fan of fruit compote, but I do love fresh fruits and whipped cream on my waffles :) And I agree...$10 is a lot for breakfast. But for us lazy people, it's worth it !

    As for the iPhone...I hope to join the club soon!

  3. Delicious! I love fruit on my waffles. It's my favorite topping!

  4. Do you think this would work with frozen fruit? Because this looks amazing. And I totally just had waffles of insane greatness a few hours ago, and now all is right with my world, hurricane be damned.

  5. Go ahead and try this with frozen fruit. Omit the water and cook it a few minutes longer.
